Join me right here at Shibley Smiles for a fun Q & A with David A. Kelly. His books sound like something my youngest son would love! I can’t wait to learn more about what inspired him.
DAVID A. KELLY has written for many newspapers and magazines, and Babe Ruth and the Baseball Curse, published in spring 2009, was his first book for children. David’s current project is Ballpark Mysteries – an early chapter book mystery series where each book is set in a different American ballpark!
He lives fifteen minutes from Fenway Park in Newton, Massachusetts, with his wife, Alice; two sons, Steven and Scott; and a dog named Sam.
“A new series for emerging chapter-book readers combines the allure of baseball parks with the challenge of solving a mystery…Historical details about Fenway Park, including the secret code found on the manual scoreboard, a look at Wally the mascot and a peek into the gift shop, will keep the young baseball fan reading.” – Kirkus Reviews
David’s most recent title in the series is The Astro Outlaw
