"'Seek 'n Find' was born out of a family tale.”
Omaha, NE (PRWEB) December 27, 2012
Teresa McKinley’s debut middle grade mystery novel, "Seek ‘n Find," is now available for pre-sale. The book is scheduled for a full release in early January 2013.
The middle grade novel, "Seek ‘n Find," revolves around the main character, Red Tolliver, who finds herself in the middle of a fascinating mystery. With the help of her friends and cousins, Red begins her investigation into why Great-Grandmother Bertie threatens them to leave her shed alone; why Bertie has such a large herb garden; and how Bertie reads folks’ futures by looking at tea leaves.
Author, Teresa McKinley, from Carbondale, IL, spoke briefly about her inspiration for the middle grade novel, “When I was around ten years old, my grandmother told me about her mother who used to read tea leaves for folks in her small town of Alvin, Illinois. She even mentioned to me that she had black magic books which she consulted. Of course being ten years old, my imagination went on overload. Knowing about this has stuck with me throughout my life. It’s kind of spooky, but it was definitely part of my family history. "Seek 'n Find" was born out of a family tale.”
