WILMINGTON, NC, October 25, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Most of us buy books, games and toys for our children for Christmas. Today, in the modern digital age, the sheer number of choices can easily overwhelm even the most selective parents. Nevertheless, there is a gift we can give to our kids that supercedes all others - the love of reading and the desire to learn.
Books can take children to entirely new levels of experience, opening their eyes to undiscovered, entirely new adventures, places and experiences. From the safety of home, they can explore to their heart's content and can be given the opportunity to ask questions, explore feelings or maybe just share a good laugh. If we can teach a child to learn to love reading, the simple joy of learning new things and the lure of unimagined ideas can become an endless quest that can vastly improve the quality of life for a child, regardless of circumstance, surroundings or station in life. That is no small gift.
Cindy C. Murray, award winning author of the Sophie and Scottie trilogy, uses the concept of girl power, combined with fascinating scientific concepts, to create wildly engaging works of action and adventure-based fiction that kids will find irresistible.
"My goal for this rated 'G' book series is to take my readers to new worlds and adventures without having to turn on a single electronic device. A recent review by a grandmother of four expressed how excited she was to find creative books that are well written to share with her grand children. I hear this over and over again by parents as well, which makes The Adventures of Sophie and Scottie a perfect series for ages 7 to 12 that encourages reading for a lifetime."
Murray also utilizes her award winning series of action adventure children's books to promote literacy and good citizenship. She is passionate about helping kids by sharing engaging and imaginative adventure stories with young readers. Her creative storytelling is inspired by her two daughters and by the childhood adventures she shared with her six siblings. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, Cindy contributed her innovative marketing skills to several Fortune 500 companies until she made the choice to stay at home to raise her children - and to write children's books.
The Sophie and Scottie Series include three action adventure books: 'Adventures of the Monarch Mystery', 'Adventures of Something's Fishy' and 'Adventures of Sweet Tooth Rock'. The main characters, Sophie and Scottie, are 11 1/2 year old twin sisters who live on a 10,000 acre sheep shearing ranch called Shear Heaven. The girls aren't identical twins but have similar features. Their unique personalities complement each other as they share adventures and travel to exotic places.
Murray's work has won major industry awards. 'The Adventures of Sophie and Scottie Book Series' was awarded the 2017 Gold Family Choice Award. All of the books in the series have taken a Silver Mom's Choice Award. 'Sophie and Scottie's Adventures of the Monarch Mystery' won the 2016 International Book Awards Silver Medal in the Children-Adventure category, as well as qualifying as a 2015 Finalist from San Diego Book Awards for best published children's book.
Murray's upcoming author events include:
Carden Arbor View School, Upland, CA - October 27, 2017
'Sophie and Scottie's Adventures of the Monarch Mystery (The Adventures of Sophie and Scottie Book 1)' will also be listed in the Fussy Librarian's book listing on November 15, 2017.
