Hi all:

Today is Friday and after some time away (more on that next week, hopefully!) I’m going back to sharing new books. An author I’ve met through social networking sites, Janice Spina, has published book two in her middle-grade children’s series Davey & Derek Junior Detectives and I thought this was a great opportunity to get to know a bit more about her and about this series.

First, a bit about Janice:

Davey and Derek Donato are twins but not identical. They gleaned the idea to be detectives from a book their parents bought them on their tenth birthday. The twins discover a black cat and some magic when they visit with their Great Aunt Gigi. The cat tries to communicate with the boys. But what does the cat want to tell them?

Review

“Davey & Derek Junior Detectives: The Case of the Missing Cell Phone” is a wonderfully written mystery book with interesting twists that will leave you wanting to know what happens next. Love the main protagonists, Davey and Derek, the twin brothers who are as different as day and night. I’m sure kids their age can relate with them and have fun solving the mystery together along them and their friend Mickey aka “CAT”. Great for young readers who love a good mystery!

The versatile award-winning children’s books author and novelist, Janice Spina, had delivered once again: This time, a lovely detective story for middle-grade kids. The protagonists in “Davey & Derek Junior Detectives: The Case of the Missing Cell Phone” are twin boys that are easy to relate to, each with a unique personality that is sure to resonate with kids their age. The twisting plot in “Davey & Derek Junior Detectives” is captivating and enjoyable. Perfect for young readers!

From the Author

Davey & Derek Junior Detectives is book 1 of a series of adventures and mysteries for middle-grade children ages 9-12, Grades 4-7.

Children’s books by Jemsbooks carry underlying themes with life lessons to help children learn to be kind, caring and accepting of others. In this middle-grade book the theme is about bullying and family relationships and how to behave in different circumstances. I hope children will learn the importance of being kind to others and that friendship matters.

Después de daros la lata hablando sobre este libro mucho tiempo, aquí está. Por fin he publicado Una vez psiquiatra… Como ya sabéis soy psiquiatra forense de día, y escritora a ratos libres, y aunque este libro no es una crónica de mis casos (afortunadamente, como veréis los que la leáis), la protagonista de las tres historias, Mary, también es psiquiatra y escritora. Almas gemelas no somos pero… afinidad la  hay.

Una vez psiquiatra... Diseño de Ernesto Valdés

Una vez psiquiatra… Diseño de Ernesto Valdés

Una vez psiquiatra…lo tiene todo: personajes intrigantes, estilo novela negra, excitante acción, situaciones peligrosas, crimen, asesinos en serie, religión, secretos de familia, revelaciones psicológicas, enfermedades mentales, trauma, debates sobre prejuicios y moralidad, juicios contestados, investigaciones policiales, corrupción, y misterio. Si os gustan: Miénteme, Mentes Criminales y El silencio de los corderos y no os asusta adentraros en los abismos oscuros de la mente, atreveos a seguid leyendo.

Una vez psiquiatra… es una colección de tres historias (‘Carne de cañón’, ‘Trabajo en equipo’ y ‘Memoria’) protagonizadas por Mary, una psiquiatra y escritora. Ella está empeñada en dedicarse totalmente a su carrera literaria pero las circunstancias y sus amigos parecen conspirar para arrastrarla de nuevo al mundo de la psiquiatría. Mary se enfrenta a todo tipo de retos: profesionales, emocionales y muy personales. ¿Conseguirá Mary escapar de la psiquiatría ilesa, o una vez psiquiatra, siempre psiquiatra?

Yo había publicado las tres historias que componen Una vez psiquiatra… en inglés, por separado y solo en formato electrónico. Después de traducirlas, con la ayuda editorial de Alexia Jorques y su equipo, y con la fabulosa portada de Ernesto Valdés, aquí llegan por primera vez en español. Para presentar el libro en sociedad publiqué ‘Carne de Cañón’ en Wattpad por entregas. Sé que algunos de vosotros lo habéis leído y me habéis dejado comentarios muy amables, pero otros me dijisteis que preferís esperar a leerlo todo enterito.

Pues, ala, aquí está vuestra oportunidad.

¡Muchas gracias por leer, y como siempre, si os ha gustado no os olvidéis de darle al me gusta, comentar, compartir, y por supuesto, hacer CLIC!

Os dejo un enlace a otro post donde os hablo sobre Una vez psiquiatra… y otros planes.
