Tiernay West, Professional Adventurer by Janni Lee Simner

Originally published as Secret of the Three Treasures.

If there's lost treasure to be found, she's the one to find it. Tiernay West, Professional Adventurer--at your service.

Moving with the stealth of a great cat of the African plains, Tiernay West can track a bicycle over dry pavement and infiltrate secret organizations far beyond bedtime. She has little use for playing by the rules, doing as she's told, or spending time with her mother's dull new boyfriend and his computer-obsessed son.

Tiernay may be months away from (elementary school) graduation, but she already knows what she wants out of life: to become a professional adventurer, just like the heroine of her father's best-selling novels. She isn't scared of anything, and when she catches wind of possible buried treasure in her own hometown, she's on the job. She knows this could be her big break.

If along the way Tiernay finds herself running for her life, scaling cliffs in the middle of the night, and evading her not-at-all-adventuresome mother, that's all in a day's work--and totally part of the plan.

About the Author

Janni Lee Simner was born aboard a pirate ship, but as soon as she came of age booked passage with a caravan bound for the Sahara and spent the next decade as a seeker of lost cities, hidden tombs, and ancient artifacts. While hiding from assassins in the lost Library of Alexandria, however, she discovered she really preferred telling stories, and so she settled down in the Sonoran desert to write, interrupted only by the occasional map-bearing stranger or man-eating Gila monster.

Tiernay West, Professional Adventurer was first published in 2006 by Holiday House as Secret of the Three Treasures. Janni has also published the post-apocalyptic Bones of Faerie trilogy and the Icelandic-saga based Thief Eyes (both published by Random House), as well as of more than 30 short stories for children, teens, and adults. In 2010 she received the Judy Goddard/Libraries Ltd. Young Adult Author Award.
