My New Children’s Book is Available for Purchase!

The Disappearing Snacks  is finally complete!

Who’s sneaking in into the church and stealing food? And why? The Johnson cousins and their friends tackle a new mystery, one that has the church custodian, youth pastor, and everyone alike stumped.

What surprise will they find at the end of their search, and who gets the prize for finding the thief?

The Disappearing Snacks is Christa’s second book for kids who like mysteries and warm stories of friendship.

Ideal for a bedtime read-aloud or an addition to your home-school reading program, this chapter book comes with comprehension and discussion questions and answer key. Over a dozen color photographs as “illustrations” add to the fun.

I had such fun writing this one. Several parts are based on true stories. 🙂

A wonderful editor also took a look and gave me some fantastic edits—I’m so thankful for that!!

I’m also very excited about some gorgeous photos that friends and family contributed! It’s fun to find/create photos to fit the story.

And I decided to start a new tradition–“a cake in every book.” 🙂 My brother-in-law (Steve Miller) is very talented at creating amazing artwork on cakes. I thought it would be fun for each mystery I write to have a photo of one of his cool cakes in it.

This book will be available for free November 26-30.

Speaking of mysteries, I think I am going to concentrate now on my picture books rather than mysteries for a while. So it might be a long time before the 3rd mystery in the series (The Silly Sheep) comes out. But please pray that I follow the Lord’s priorities!

About Christa Upton

I am a wife and mother of three children ages 11, 14, and 18. I used to be a stay-at-home mom (teaching piano & dance, volunteering, etc). From 2007 to 2010, I suffered accidental Toxic Injury (also called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity or MCS). MCS has had major impact on our family, but the forced time in bed has given me time to write. So far, I have published 4 children's books (2 in e-book format on Kindle, one in Print-on-Demand at CreateSpace, and one printed by a local printer). Sometimes I miss my old life, but I love writing for children!
