Erica Gore is the author of the Taya Bayliss mystery/adventure series based upon 11-year-old Taya Bayliss. “The characters in my books are average kids,” says Erica, “They do not have special powers or live in fantasy worlds. They are much like the kids I grew up with and the kids I taught at school.”

Reading was a favorite pastime for Erica who grew up in Brisbane, Australia. And creating stories where the child characters were brave and outgoing, helped Erica with her shyness, which was further assisted when she was enrolled in speech and drama classes to boost her confidence. “I will be forever grateful to my mother for that,” says Erica who went on to become a primary school teacher. Erica is now retired after more than thirty years teaching, but thankfully the stories continue.

“The main character, Taya, is the adventurous little girl that I wanted to be,” says Erica. “She is curious and likes to solve puzzles and although she can be a scaredy-cat, she can be amazingly brave.”

The fourth book in the series, Snake Charmer, is due for release this month, September 2014 and follows on from Treasurer Hunter, Dog Sitter and Code Breaker. The series has been designed to help children transition from picture books to chapter books more easily.

You can connect with Erica on her website, Facebook, and Twitter. The main character in the series, Taya Bayliss also has her own blog! You can purchase the series directly from Erica and all major online retailers including
