I was always interested in history and adventure. I loved to read stories about heroes from the past, and I was always captivated by the tales of exploration and discovery. It was sharing my love of history, adventure, and puzzles with my children which inspired me to write my middle-grade fiction book, The Lost Journals of Bud Wiper.
In the Lost Journals of Bud Wiper, Bud is a 6th-grade millionaire from over 60 years ago. Yep, that’s right, Bud Wiper is a treasure hunter from the 1940s who left behind his journal full of life and adventure, and even though they’ve never met, Bud’s story might be the only thing that gets Teddy through the 6th grade alive.
I loved writing this book because I was able to talk about modern loss, pain, and hurt in a creative way where a present-day 6th grader was guided through the complexities of all of his problems by reading the diary of a larger-than-life character of his exact age from over 60 years before.
One of the most exciting aspects of writing The Lost Journals of Bud Wiper was researching the period of history in which the story is set. I read extensively about the time period and visited historical sites to help me create an accurate and immersive setting for Bud’s journey. I also spoke to experts and consulted with historians to ensure that the story I was telling was historically accurate.
The Lost Journals of Bud Wiper is a story about courage and adventure. It’s a story about the power of hope and the importance of never giving up. It’s also a story of discovery, as readers can join Bud on his journey and uncover the secrets of the past.
Writing The Lost Journals of Bud Wiper has been an incredible experience, and I’m proud of the book I have created. I hope readers will be inspired by Bud’s story and reminded of the importance of always striving for adventure.

Leo jumped out of his car and stood in front of Ramsey. “ This not good, mister. Not good. Tell him, perdoon stary, do it now, or they will surely kill us.”
Give them the book Ramsey,” I said, motioning toward the guard.
on his face and then repeated what Leo had told him to say, “Perdoon Stary.” It sounded— strange hearing it from Ramsey with his American accent.
The guards busted out laughing hysterically. Ramsey turned to Leo. “ What did you make me say? ”
“Old fart,” came a voice in a thick Russian accent.
I turned to see a man that looked like he was in charge step forward. He wore a large rounded bill military cap with a red band and golden emblem around the center. “ Nothing in Russia is private. Now give me the book.”
