Sara Daniel Romance Author: My Secret Alter Ego

My Secret Alter Ego

This blog is mostly focused on my Sara Daniel romance happenings, but today I’m going to let you in on a little secret.

I write children’s chapter books under the pen name Sara Shafer.   I consider this my “side job” with romance writing as my “real job.”  The first book in The Bravest Squirrel series came out in September.  I’ll tell you all about it in a minute.

First, I have to tell you that I read the draft of the second book to my daughter this week.  We should have had two more evenings of reading, but she loved it so much that we finished the whole thing last night.  Naturally, her excitement (she was jumping on the bed cheering for Max!) made ME excited.

I can’t wait to polish The Bravest Squirrel in the Forest, so you can download it onto your hot little e-reader.  (That’s the 2012 equivalent of getting your hot little hands on the book, right?!)

Until then, you can download The Bravest Squirrel Ever right now!

Pippi the squirrel isn't brave and has no interest in earning the title of "The Bravest Squirrel Ever."  Scared of thunder, lightning and being "flopped" by the humans, Pippi only wants to return to Mama's warm, cozy nest.  Instead, she stumbles on a better nest.  There's only one problem.  It's in dangerous, forbidden human territory.  The attic nest is too perfect for Pippi to resist, and she moves in.  The humans soon discover her. Instead of driving her out, they seal off her only exit, trapping her inside.  To escape and to survive, Pippi must face her fears and depend on herself for the first time in her life.  In doing so, she learns just how brave a little squirrel can be.

I have lots of fun facts about squirrels and more information about The Bravest Squirrel series on my website.

Do you have secret you're bursting to tell or a fun squirrel story? My ears are twitching.
