Erica Gore
I am a retired primary school teacher who writes mystery adventures for young readers.  My stories are aimed at the children trying to make the transition from picture books to novels.  They are about real kids with no special powers who have to use their wits to cope with the situations More...


Eleven year old Taya volunteers to dog sit the mischievous Minette for the summer holidays. Minette's sneaky ways bring to Taya's attention a spate of robberies in the neighbourhood. Even the residents of the local retirement are finding that things are going missing.
When Taya witnesses a robbery, she thinks she can identify the thief. But is she on the right track or completely mistaken?
She and her friend, Chris, go in search of evidence but find themselves in deadly danger before the mystery is solved.

My dog Trudy www.thebigblondedog.blogspot.com is the inspiration for the Minette character in this book.
