Have you ever had a dream? Do you have a vivid imagination? Then you will love Sammi Jo, who totally believes that if you can dream it, you can make it happen!
Sammi Jo is anticipating a very long and boring summer with no one to play with. Strange splashes and unexplained items appearing from the sea prompt her to begin her explorations to find the meaning behind the “clues”.
Will she meet a new friend? Join Sammi Jo on her quest and see if you can figure out the mystery before she does!
Dede Stockton is the red-headed, only child who was always seeking a new friend. The stories about Sammi Jo and her seaside adventures stem from Dede’s imagined adventures when she was a child and living near beaches all over the world as a military brat!
Most places did not have television, or at least not American television, and because she is an only child and there were no electronic devices in those days, she read... Anything she could get her hands on!
Many of the places she lived were on or near the oceans, so, just like Sammi Jo, she believed that there were magical adventures to be had under the water!
Dede began telling stories of Sammi Jo and her sea monster friend to her children as bed time stories. As the stories, and her children, grew, she decided she should write them so other children could enjoy the adventures as well.
We are getting close now! I am waiting for my "final" print copy and then, at long last, the rewrite and republication of Sammi Jo and the Best Day Ever will finally be available! Stay tuned for pre-order information and we shoot for a launch date of September 1, 2017!
Sammi Jo and The Best Day Ever!
Sammi Jo grabbed her backpack and headed out the door. She was so excited, she tripped and fell flat on the porch. She jumped up, laughing at herself, and ran carefully down the porch steps. Running toward the beach, her mind was so full of what could be in store for the day, that it took her several moments to notice the strange noises coming from her backpack.
