New Book in the CIA Series

Hey Guys,

Lissy here to announce a new book in the CIA series. Operation Dude Ranch is coming out this week and Sam will be signing copies of both Operation Dude Ranch and Operation Pharaoh’s Curse at the Westbank Community Library next Sunday at 1pm. If you are in the Austin area please stop by.

Check out the fabulous new artwork by new cover artist, Claire O’Brien. I just love that we’re pieces of art! Although I hear that Cagney was less thrilled!

Operation Pharaoh’s Curse

Hello friends, Lissy here. Such happy news as the fourth book in the CIA series, Operation Pharaoh’s Curse, is released into the world, revealing our latest adventure in Egypt and the Valley of the Kings.

Already two wonderful five star reviews on Amazon which I know have made my aunt very happy. It’s always fun to know that children are reading the CIA series and loving our adventures.

Here is what readers have to say:

“Laugh Out Loud Funny! – My daughter will be thrilled with the release of the fourth book in the Cousins in Action Series. She is a voracious reader and has read the other books in this series over and over again. She says they are full of suspense, action, and danger (“in a fun way”). She likes the characters’ different personalities and says the books are “laugh out loud” funny. She’s gotten a bunch of her friends hooked on the series as well.”

“Adventure, Humour, Mystery and Fun! -My daughter is eleven, and has been hooked on this series for years. She cherishes the books and reads them over and over. So we are thrilled with the publication of Operation Pharaoh’s Curse, which offers up the same wonderful mix of adventure, humour, mystery and fun! The characters are beautifully drawn, and opening up chapter one feels like falling back in to the company of old friends. Highly, highly recommended!”

Happy reading, everyone!

Launch for CIA – Operation Jewel Thief

Operation Jewel Thief LaunchHey guys, Lissy here.

My aunt’s new book, CIA  – Operation Jewel Thief, came out in December and she is having a launch party on Saturday, January 16th at our local community library.

This is always such a fun event. I get to go up front and read the trivia questions (the answers are all in the book) and then one of the other cousins hands out the prize to the person who wins!

This time my aunt is also going to be serving tea and biscuits (one of her main food groups). She’ll also be reading a passage from the book (one of my favorites about our visit to Buckingham Palace) and taking questions.

If you are in the Austin area stop by and say hi!

Operation Jewel Thief

OJT - 9-8-15Hello friends, Lissy here. Happy to announce that my aunt’s third book, Operation Jewel Thief, about our time in England has just hit the Amazon shelves.

This was such a fun adventure, although it was a bit spooky and a bit embarrassing for me, as you will find out at the end. Our time in England was full of castles, ghosts, royalty and coconuts! We met some wonderful people with crazy  names like Pickle and Puffin and the wonderful Featherington-Twits.

I think this was my favorite adventure yet and I hope you enjoy reading about it.

CIA – Operation Jewel Thief

OJT - 9-8-15

As most of you probably know, the third book in the Cousins In Action series takes place in England! Today my aunt got the cover art for CIA – Operation Jewel Thief (drawn by her friend Han Randhawa who I interviewed a few months back), so I wanted to share it with you. I just love it – the fire, the corgis, the expression on Cagney’s face! Check back soon for details of the release date. Lissy Puddleton.

You May Not Know!

Something you may not know about us cousins is that we are all musical.

Cagney sings in the school choir, Aidan plays the guitar. Olivia plays the flute, Tess the clarinet and they both play the piano. I play the violin. See Tess’ drawings above.

At Christmas we got together and played Christmas carols, which was actually more fun than it sounds!

Happy February, my friends. Hope you are all staying warm and dry – Lissy.
