Signs of Trouble

Because of my personal experience with special needs, characters who have them appear in my writing even if I don't plan on that in advance. For example, one of the main characters in The Peril of the Sinister Scientist uses a wheelchair.
Now I've written a book for children specifically about kids with learning disabilities and it has just been published. Signs of Trouble is about two girls with dyslexia who get separated from their Special Education class on a field trip and use what they've learned about safety rules and recognizing signs to get reunited with them.
The book was officially released several days ago and I'm waiting for my copies to arrive in the mail and for it to appear on Amazon, which should happen soon. The book will also be available at other online sites like Barnes and Noble and bookstores can get it through their distributors.
I'm hoping the educational material in the back of Signs of Trouble will help kids understand others who are different from themselves as well as reinforcing safety rules and beginning reading skills. And I think they'll enjoy the story, too.


  1. I’m excited and waiting for my copies as well Janet. You are so right about the great educational material as well as the delightful story. All kids will love it.

  2. Thanks, Jack. I guess I failed to mention the wonderful artwork done by you!
