Above you see two young-adult readers on a whirl of adventure with: (left) Melanie Jackson’s 2015 Ferris-Wheel suspenser Eye Sore, and (right) her 2016 Proserphone-themed thriller Death Drop, both published by Orca Books.

ByChasTreeGetting kids to read shouldn’t be a challenge. Shouldn’t put your head in a Ferris Wheel spin or a Hellevator-like drop. The age-old attraction of reading is all in the story. A good conflict, a puzzling problem and accessible language: Now that’s a ride young-adult readers will climb aboard. In this blog, children’s/YA author Melanie Jackson (right) shares her experience, adventures and enthusiasm in writing mysteries. Thanks for visiting–and don’t forget to glance over your shoulder now and then. A plot twist may be coming at you!

Read all Melanie’s blog posts, including
the latest one, titled “It’s the fruit of death, Mrs. Jackson!”  It’s all about the pomegranate that toppled the mythical Persephone into the underworld–and inspired Melanie to write her latest young-adult chiller, Death Drop.
