Welcome everyone! Today, I’d like to introduce you to a world-traveling children’s author named Darlene Foster. You are going to love her and her books and I know your children will as well.

I’ll let Darlene tell you about her latest book, Amanda in New Mexico–Ghosts in The Wind, in her own words…

Amanda in New Mexico – Ghosts in the Wind by Darlene Foster

The questions most asked of authors is, where do you get your ideas. Well, I get most of mine from my travels. I visited Taos, New Mexico a few years ago and was so taken with the history and art found in this area. We visited the St. James Hotel in Cimarron, which is purported to be haunted.

Amanda in Arabia: The Perfume Flask By Darlene Foster, Published by iRead iWrite Publishing in April 2010, 107 pages

Review by E
Amanda had no idea what she had gotten herself into when she wished for action and adventure. Soon she was thousands of kilometres away from home in the United Arab Emirates visiting her aunt and uncle. Little did she know a whole new world was right around the corner, one involving a long lost princess, a camel named Ali-Baba, and a great new friend, Leah. Come along and join Amanda in a fabulous adventure including camels and LOTS of dangerous deserts.

I thought this book was fun and packed with adventure. This book has been very well written and I would definitely sit down to read it again. I think I am a lot like Amanda, ALWAYS ready to go on an adventure and explore new places. I also noticed that Amanda goes to the beach with Leah SO many times. Our family is not far from the beach and its one of my favorite places.

If you enjoyed the Emily Windsnap books you would like this book. I would recommend it to children ages 6-9. There is not very many difficult words but it is still a great book to read anywhere and anytime. This book is very short with pretty large font, which makes it a great book to bring with you. It can even fit in a small purse or box.
