Books and Ruby Foo's

Rachael Dugas, Jessica Haight, Stephanie Robinson, Krista Vitola
Not only was the Book Expo an amazing event, but we were also thrilled to sit down with our lovely literary agent, Rachael Dugasand our brilliant editor, Krista Vitola, for an excellent lunch at Ruby Foo's. We dug into our thoughts about books, and got down to business. It was so much fun to talk about Fairday and her friends investigating the mystery of the Begonia House. There are still so many secrets to be revealed! The whole day was a whirlwind, inspiring the story lover in everyone. So, here's to books, may they always be at the ready. ;) ~ Jess & Stephanie


The Begonia House keeps its secrets. Everyone knows that. Everyone, that is, except for clever eleven-year-old Fairday Morrow, whose family has just moved in. Being the Senior Investigator in the Detective Mystery Squad, more commonly known as the DMS, she’s ready to uncover the mysteries hidden within the strange manor. As the investigation gears up and the pieces of the puzzle begin to fall into place, the DMS enters into a world where anything is possible, and the danger is most definitely real. Follow along with Fairday and her friends, as spooky meets lovely in this twisting tale of dark secrets and hidden pasts.

What Fairday's Blog is all about...


Fairday's Riddles are posted on Mondays- they can be written about anything and everything, all at the same time!

Lizzy's Book Reviews are posted on Wednesdays. Lizzy has read just about every middle grade novel out there, and she loves to share her thoughts and, of course, her opinions.

Author Interviews are posted on Fridays. The DMS seeks out the best middle grade authors today and brings them here to chat about their stories. 

Margo's Musings Fridays are sometimes shared with Margo, Fairday's little sister. This post focuses on reviewing children's book authors, which we follow up with an Author Interview.

The DMS Wants to Know was a post we came up with because when we get together to hang out on the weekend, we always chat about different situations and ideas that are floating around in our brains and we like to listen to what other people think about them- some of the comments we've gotten have been absolutely fascinating!
