Meet the Author

Mary calls Lansing, MI, her home, but has passion for traveling. She and her family have visited more than twenty five National Parks, exploring and photographing each one. She shares "America's best idea" with children through facts and mysterious adventures, hoping to create in them a desire to explore the parks for themselves.

She is very excited to be able to incorporate the risky adventures she and her companions experienced, in the plots of her books. She says, "All the characters in each book are based on, and named after the kids in my life".

Her unpublished writings include many of the children's plays at church. She is on-staff with the Maranatha Christian Writers Conference, where her dream of publishing became a reality.

    The Cooper Twins Uncover Clues to a Cryptic Plot by Some Shady C

    The Cooper Twins Uncover Clues to a Cryptic Plot by Some Shady Characters

    “The Face of Mount Rushmore” is the second book in Mary Morgan’s “National Park Mystery Series.” The Cooper twins, Ben and Bekka, are excited about an uncharacteristic request from Uncle Paul to join him for a 4th of July fireworks celebration at the Rushmore National Monument in the Black Hills of South Dakota. 




    Excitement is in the air as preparations are made for a family vacation of camping along their way to meet Uncle Paul. Bekka keeps the family up-to-date on what to expect as she quizzes them with important “For Your Information” (FYI) quizzes, using her tour book as a source of reference. As they near their destination plans are made plans to pan for gold at the Thunder Mountain Gold Mine; dig for dinosaurs, follow the 1874 expeditions of Colonel George Custer, to hike along the Presidential Trial, and to check out the Junior Ranger experience offered at the Rushmore National Monument. 




    Ben was stunned when he overheard two suspicious looking men alluding to a cryptic plot to detonate dynamite at a time when the fireworks would muffle the sound of an explosion. Tension continued to heighten as the mystery unraveled and the intrigue continued to build to a “dynamite” conclusion.




    Morgan’s unique writing style, genuine characters, and love for story provide the preteen reader with elements of adventure, history, and family values, using a balance of humor, entertainment, inspiration, and informative data.



    “The Face of Mount Rushmore – National Park Mystery Series” should be on the reading lists of elementary school, church, and home school family libraries. Preteen readers will enjoy each mysterious adventure in the series. Highly recommended.
