Kidtales Holiday Bookfair- Meet the Author, Sara Stinson
Kidtales Holiday Bookfair presents-
Author Sara Stinson
Sara is the youngest child of three children.
She grew up in a small town in Elba, Alabama.
She grew up reading “The Nancy Drew” series.
She also enjoyed reading over and
over the “13 Alabama Ghosts and Jeffrey”
by Kathryn Tucker Windham and Margaret Gillis Figh.
After retiring from teaching, her children encouraged her to start writing,
so “Finger Bones” (Volume 1) was written.
and Sara finished (Volume 2) of “The Finger Bones Series” quickly!
Sara continues to substitute at nearby schools.
She enjoys sharing her characters with her students.
They have become her cheering squad along with her family.
Finger Bones has been sending ghosts
to their next destination for many years.
Now it's Wendy's turn. The Bridgeville Clipper announces
Finger Bones is dead at 122-years of age.
Wendy is not upset. He will be back. Finger Bones and
Wendy have unfinished business in this small town.
When ten-year-old Wendy Dee Winkelmann needs to
do some serious thinking she likes to chew bubblegum.
While sitting on a bench in town reading,
she becomes friends with an old man the townspeople call, Finger Bones.
Some locals consider him odd and spread rumors
about the ghastly man who lives up a dirt road
in an old ramshackle cabin.
Yet Wendy knows different, and soon she discovers
this old man, who walks to town with a burlap bag
tied to a stick, has a special job.
He sends ghosts to their next destination,
and the stick and burlap bag he carries are magical.
Now Wendy chases the lingering spirits, and her two best friends,
Claire and Henry, are determined to help her through thick and thin.
Soon she finds herself caught up in a devious plan
of a dark sinister power, and if it means hurting someone,
or worse, it will do whatever is necessary to succeed.
It’s all up to Wendy to save Bridgeville before the evil power takes over the town.
