Guest Post : A Voice in the Night by Ernestine Dail

What inspired me to write my book

Well, I’m a middle and high school teacher who participated in our afterschool program once a week with nursery and elementary students for two hours. One of my activities included reading to the students. One day, a kindergarten student selected a book and asked if he could read to the students. I didn’t think that he could read well enough to hold the other students interest, but I thought it would be interesting to listen to his reading skills. To my amazement, he was an excellent reader who read with expression; he enunciated his words, and demonstrated that he really enjoyed participating in the story. Since that day, I decided that I would write children books because I saw how they really enjoyed reading and listening to the story. From this experience, Dimples DoGood, was written. On the other hand, high school students read and enjoyed the book as well, and encouraged me to write a mystery of which A Voice in the Nightwas written.

About the Book:

Brian, Josh, and Thomas arrived at Blackstone Cabin with great expectations of fishing and having fun. Now in the midst of a raging storm, and a hooded stranger frantically knocking at their door, the boys desperately wished for Josh’s father, Mr.Joplin, to return to the cabin. Will he return in time to save the boys from danger, or will the boys open the door to the frantic knocking of the hooded stranger outside.
