Taya Bayliss - Snake Charmer by E. J. Gore

‘My stories are about real kids who have problems to solve. They have no magic powers. Their own quick wits and observation skills are their weapons.’ E. J. Gore

Brisbane, Australia 2014: Forest Lake author Erica (E. J.) Gore has published the latest book in her collection of mysteries for young readers. ‘Taya Bayliss – Snake Charmer’ is due for release on October 1, 2014.

The Taya Bayliss collection of mysteries for young readers follows in the grand tradition of Enid Blyton’s ‘Famous Five’ adventures.
Themes of friendship, loyalty and independence underpin the stories. Taya and her best friend, Chris, are ordinary kids with no magic powers or special abilities. They have only their quick wits to help them as they confront some scary, challenging and downright dangerous situations.

Taya is an inquisitive eleven year-old with a keen eye for detail and a desire for her surroundings to be orderly. When things are not what she considers to be ‘normal’. Her interest is heightened and she strives to re-settle her world.

In ‘Taya Bayliss – Snake Charmer’ Taya has to face one of her greatest fears as she tries to discover who stole a precious ruby studded cross. Young readers are drawn into the story quickly as the clues begin to mount up. Was it really Chris’ Uncle George who committed the robbery? Where is the cross now? How does Fifi, the carpet python fit into the mystery?

Get those kids reading. Get them thinking. Get them into Taya Bayliss mysteries.
