About The Author:

"Murder On The Mountain, my first novel, is inspired by the Adirondacks region. Many people enjoy reading mysteries. So often we encounter baffling circumstances in our lives. We, as humans always look to solve whatever does not make sense. But as we do this we also want to find peace. Always remember you are braver than you know, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and loved more than you know."
Rebecca Donnelly: How to Stage a Catastrophe
Sidney plans to be the director of the Juicebox Theater when he grows up. For now, he handles the props, his best friend Folly works the concession stand, and his sister May hangs out in the spotlight. But the theater is in danger of closing, and the kids know they need a plan to save it and fast. When they join a local commerce club to earn money, Sid and Folly uncover some immoral business practices, and it gives them a great idea for saving the theater. That is, if you can call extortion a great idea. Hilarious and heartwarming, the mission to save a failing community theater unites a riotous cast of characters in this offbeat middle-grade novel.
