Overview

Lucky Alana (Agent C Series) is an illustrated chapter book for middle-grade readers.

After Alana's father dies, she tries desperately to control her unhappy life with "lucky" finger snaps. The snaps don't seem to be helping though, because her mother can't pay the rent, and they are evicted from their motel.

Just when everything is at its lowest point, Alana rubs the Wizard's lamp in a national contest and wins a solid gold charm bracelet.

Suddenly, she has grandparents, a house, new friends, and amazing success in everything she tries. Is it all due to her luck?

Alana's new friend, Jacob, doesn't think so, and the bracelet's mysterious little charms support his opinion. They suggest instead, that she is using her more dependable powers of people, a home, health, hardwork, and a positive attitude.

This story encourages its audience to examine the value of some real support systems in order to deal with life's difficulties.

Lucky Alana is the fourth of the "Agent C" series of ebooks. The "C" stands for the word "catalyst", meaning something that causes a drastic change.

"Agent C" is a little man who makes cameo appearances in each story of this series. In Lucky Alana, he appears as the Wizard at the mall who awards the winning charm bracelet.

Meet the Author

As a child growing up in cozy little town on the Missouri River of South Dakota, Lynda explored her early passion for writing and art by creating stories and poems. She even attempted one novel on theme paper and kept it carefully hidden on a high dusty shelf in her bedroom.

A resident of Arizona for many years now, she lives with her husband and their black and white cat, Topper. Two grown-up daughters have homes and families of their own in other places.

With two degrees in Elementary Ed, Lynda loved teaching in grades 1,2,3,4, and 5 of public schools for twenty-one years. Even after retirement she continued to work with students in a reading intervention program.

...And throughout her adult life she wrote, painted, and revised her stories. At last, she began to realize that she owned a desk full of ideas, problems, and children who lived only in her imagination.

Finally, Lynda decided that books without readers were a waste of her joy and inspiration!

Ebooks offered an audience, and completed the communication cycle that sometimes had begun with a germ of an idea many years before. Seven of these have been published, and they are all available on this market.

Lynda is working on three more, but just like the young readers in her audience, the stories are still growing and changing.
