Annie Tillery Mysteries are just pure fun! It's a case of Nancy Drew meets CSI. Join teen author, Linda Maria Frank, at Long Island's summer fairs. Frank will be featuring her Annie Tillery Mystery series, the new generation of girl detective, and presenting information about her various programs and lesson plans she provides for the books. Meet Linda Maria Frank, and sample her two books of the series, "The Madonna Ghost" and "Girl with Pencil, Drawing." The third in the series, "Secrets in the Fairy Chimneys," is due to come out late this year.

Featuring books at arts and crafts fairs is a relatively rare occurrence, but as Frank puts it, "Authors are artists and books are our creations. Painters use paint, writers use words and ideas."

Frank will be presenting her wares at the Saltaire, Fire Island Fair on August. 3, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., amidst the magical serenity of Saltaire, one of Fire Island's seaside vacation communities. The fair will feature arts and crafts, as well as the Island's charm and sea breezes.

The Street Fair at Massapequa Park, August 4, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., is another venue for Frank, who is a long-term resident of this quintessential suburb of Long Island. Find out more about the fairs at Frank's Facebook page.

An additional "feel good" from the sale of her books is Frank's contribution of one dollar from each book to the INN (Interfaith Nutritional Network).
