Overview

Four cousins find themselves swamp deep in adventure as they seek to solve five riddles in an effort to free a rambunctious Siberian Husky from the evil grasp of Reggie – just one of several teddy-bears-come-to-life that makes Alligator Bay an intriguing and suspense-filled story!

When Cranberry’s recklessness leads to Tyler’s disappearance out in a swamp called Alligator Bay, his attempt to set things right on his own comes to a sudden halt when he finds his way barred by a fierce alligator. It’s only through the help of Harry, a fellow bear steeped in wisdom, that they learn Tyler’s disappearance is the work of Reggie, a renegade bear with a big chip on his shoulder. Reggie presents them with five riddles that must be solved in order to gain Tyler’s freedom.

With Harry leading the way and the help of Ashley and Ethan - the children Harry and Cranbeary belong to, together with their cousins Lindsay and Jimmy - the would-be rescuers join to pit the strength of their combined talents and love for Tyler against the wiles of Reggie and his cohorts.

Written for young readers, Alligator Bay highlights the virtues of perseverance, cooperation, and steadfast love over bitterness and a thirst for revenge.

Meet the Author

It is worth mentioning that I find it important to write with someone in mind. I don’t know if it is the same with other writers but it is with me. It was true of my earlier published works, The Girl and The Forest and A House For Molly, and it is true of Alligator Bay as well. God has given all of his children various gifts of skill and talent and it is the expression of these gifts in service to others that breathes life into them and renders them of greatest benefit.

As I go about my life here in upstate New York, I realize that I have too long neglected the opportunity to care for others through the power of a story. With the publication of Alligator Bay I hope to get back on track.

The human characters in the story are very real and very special. Even the bears are real in the sense that they exist in physical form and were, for a time, an important part of the children's lives. Tyler, the rascally Siberian Husky, was real as well. He was one of my dearest friends.

It is my cherished hope that this story will bring to readers of all ages both amusement and an opportunity to indulge their imaginations in the joy of fantasy. Should it be well received, there are many more Beary Tales rattling about in this head of mine!
