"I'm a mom of a 9 yr old girl, and we both love spooky stories. These tales are great in detail, not too long, and entertaining, if you're into this kind of stuff. The both of us highly recommend this book to others." ~Amazon Reviewer

I purchased and read "Scary Stories for Kids" today. I found it quite enjoyable. I'm beyond the target age group, but having written scary stories for kids myself, I found yours tightly told and well written. The missing kid theme is one that certainly resonates with children, but also adults, so I believe parents can find some (morbid) enjoyment is reading these aloud to children or perhaps at a campfire. We were all kids once, after all. Overall, you've taken the instinctive terror of missing children and really filled in the mystery and unknown with some horrific ends. Your other theme of being eaten is one that seems to come up again and again in my own stories, so I think I enjoyed The Zoo Keeper the most--story and illustration.

I like the moral aspect in The Wishing Well with the stealing, as well as the behavioral issues with The Toy Maker. These gave me a real Grimm brothers feel with a modern setting.

The illustrator also did an excellent job. Really captured the central theme of each story with an artistic illustration. The pictures are appropriate for children while maintaining a scary element to them.

Well done! I'm glad I happened to see this post.

Thank you Wolfman for checking out my book! I really appreciate your kind words. The weirdest part of that book is that I was not intentionally writing all of the stories to be about missing kids! It wasn't until a reviewer pointed it out, that I even realized I had done that! :o  Isn't writing amazing?

 I know the books needs more editing. It was a pet project... kind of something I could be proud to show my kids, because my other work, well... it's not something my kid's can brag to other's about! haha
