Praise for the Book
"Jewel of Peru took me on an adventure from page one. Sharon Skretting has captured Peru and deftly woven elements of the culture and geography into a fast-paced treasure hunt. It was well written, entertaining and introduced me to new ideas. I loved making little discoveries along the way about the people and places. I found some of the features of Peru so interesting, I looked them up the Internet and was delighted to find things just as she described. Fact and fantasy blend seamlessly in this delightful tale." ~ Sara Marschand, Quiethouse Copy Editing
"Engaging and meaningful, the author does an excellent job crafting this story. I don’t usually read middle school novels but made an exception for this one and will be passing it on to all the children in my life." ~ 5 Star Review, Love Reading, Amazon
"The Jewel of Peru is a wonderful piece of educational fiction that blends fact and fantasy to create a literary journey that is both informative and exciting for young readers… It’s every bit as much of a page turner as it is a learning experience…" ~ 5 Star Review, Kelley, Amazon

From the Author
I'm so glad you stopped by to check out my novel, The Ultimate Treasure Quest I: The Jewel of Peru. It has long been a dream of mine to be a writer. Ever since my high school English teacher told me, "You have quite a way with words!" I knew that one day I would be crafting stories for the young and the young at heart. Stories filled with imaginative twists and surprising plots, action, adventure and mystery.
I want my readers to fall in love with the quirky flaws of my characters and really care about what happens to them. Mostly, I want the readers of my novels to get caught up in the experience of the story and never want to put it down. With this, my first novel in a series, my readers have expressed many of those reactions and I am proud to release this second edition with stronger characters and even more plot twists than the first edition. This is the fulfillment of my dream to give my readers a wonderful experience.
Now let's find a fireplace and curl up with a great story!
