The Mysterious Gold Medal

Today I would like to introduce Mrs. Virginia Griesse.  Nearly 30 years ago, she was my music teacher at school!  🙂

She and her husband also led a wonderful children’s singing group called Sounds of Sonshine.  I have many wonderful memories of singing at camp, doing puppets, recording cassette tapes of the music (hey, Cathy, where’s that tooth?), and even traveling to sing at other churches.

You can learn more and purchase Mrs. Griesse’s wonderful music and puppet shows, etc. at

And today I’m excited to tell you that Mrs. Griesse has just published her first children’s book!  It is here.  Only $6, it would make a perfect present for the children on your holiday list.

The Mysterious Gold Medal is a fun, historical mystery with really nice illustrations.

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!
