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.
Sammi Jo and the Best Adventure Ever! will be in your hands soon! Some final edits and your child can have the third book of the Sammi Jo Adventure Series for Christmas this year! Keep an eye out for more updates coming soon!
Sammi Jo and the Best Adventure Ever!
They swam deeper and deeper into the ocean and it became darker and darker. Sammi Jo began to feel a little scared and was getting pretty cold when they finally glided to a stop. The water around them was very dark and still and they could barely see anything!
