Product description


From the start of this book we are in the unmistakably familiar territory of our Adirondack region, with references to Raquette Lake, Ticonderoga, the Great Camps and others. Rebecca Leonard has captured the flavor of our area and has even paused now and then, allowing us to taste the literal flavor of maple sugar cookies, candied apples and even a local version of...michigan sauce!? This ghostly story is truly one of tricks or treats . Adirondack Nightmare is generously illustrated by young Mr. Leonard with line drawings, two dimensional figures, and darkly shaded artwork that suits the eerie mood of this spooky tale. Happy reading! --Sid Couchey, Illustrator, Richie Rich, The Shadow comics

"I took the dare and I just might have to go to sleep with the light on tonight. It's an Adirondack tale that sends chills up and down my spine every time I read it. I just know it will do the same for you. It is a real recipe for goose bumps. Not only is the story frighteningly delicious, but the recipes are yummy as well. I can't wait to read the next Adirondack Nightmare." --Gordie Little, Radio & TV Personality, Ghost Storyteller

"My daughter fell right into the book and didn't even want to come up for air. She loved that it takes place in the Adirondacks...a place near and dear to her heart even though she's a Southern girl." --Romeyn Rowlson, Falls Church, VA

About the Author

Rebecca (Becky) has two college degrees: An AAS in Business Marketing and Merchandising and a BS in Computer Science. She has owned and operated her own successful video rental business since June of 1990. At one point she owned three stores and now owns two, both called Under One Roof Video. A 10-year-old, playing at Becky's house in Cliff Haven, NY, came upon a manuscript Becky wrote in 1978 for a high school creative writing class. The young lady said excitedly to the author, "Wow, this is great! You should be an author!" This enthusiasm was all Becky needed to begin writing regional children's books. Her 15-year-old son and 11-year-old daughter offer a lot of creative ideas and inspiration. Becky's business sense has helped her in marketing and promoting her books. The author uses her experience with computers to develop her web site. Her computer expertise has also been invaluable to her while she began her own self-publishing company, Leonard Enterprises, Inc. Becky has lived in the Adirondack area most of her life and she loves to share her passion(s) of reading and the Adirondacks with younger children. During book presentations, Rebecca urges kids to follow their dreams, do what they can, and not let put-downs get in their way just as she became first a successful business owner and then an author, even after being ridiculed all through her childhood. If you'd like to contact Becky, she can be reached at adirondackbooks@aol.com or at (518) 561-2443.
