It all started with a school assignment: explore a room in a grandparent’s home and write about it. How was Daniel to know this would lead him into a mystery?
Daniel explored his grammy’s attic and found his Great Great Uncle Fletcher’s trunk there. It was full of books about trains from his train travels all over the Eastern United States in the 1890s. At the very bottom of the trunk, Daniel found a mysterious, small red fancy box.
His grammy let him take the monkey home. At bedtime the monkey’s eyes turned a glowing red that made Daniel very sleepy. For three straight nights, Daniel had exciting adventures in his dreams with the mysterious monkey. Action-filled, intriguing, heart-pounding, mysterious adventures.
Daniel knew what he was going to write and returned the monkey head to his grammy. What a surprise ending that will leave readers begging for a sequel to this story!

About the Author
Stella currently lives with her supportive husband in Greensboro, North Carolina. They have three grown children: Anthony, Matthew, and Laura. To their delight, they also have eight very active grandsons (no granddaughters yet) who have always been avid readers and listeners. Even their two youngest grandsons love books, so it's a good thing Stella has always loved books and telling stories. Interestingly, their grandsons also have lots of hats, many of which are ones that Stella has crocheted for them.
The author went to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro for her undergraduate work. Her first job was with the Greensboro Public Library. Her second job was as a middle-school teacher. Currently Stella is a long-standing Realtor with Allen Tate Realtors® and an active volunteer.
Gardening, reading, and crafts are the author's hobbies. She's currently focusing on crocheting. Besides the hats for her eight grandsons, she crochets afghans and baskets.
As an only child, Stella has always been drawn to animals, especially dogs and cats. She's had pets for her entire life. Both children and animals have always been dear to her heart. Anna the Storm-Water Drain Cat and Anna's Kittens Find Homes incorporated both. Stella loves this new creative endeavor of writing and hopes that you enjoy her two books. She's writing a children's mystery and more children's books, so look for additional selections to come in the future.
