Celebrating the Release of TREASURE AT LURE LAKE by Shari L. Schwarz

Success stories are how we as writers encourage each other. With each new friend who "makes it" we know that its within our reach as well. Today, I'm super excited to announce the release of a dear friend's masterpiece. Shari and I met online talking about the SCBWI conference in Colorado, and she graciously invited me to stay the night at her home and to share a hotel room even though we were complete strangers. I'm so glad we put aside our reservations because we became fast friends. At that time, we both shared our MG boys adventure stories with each other, and critiqued together. Now, I'm happy to introduce you to her and and celebrate the release of her debut novel TREASURE AT LURE LAKE.

Isn't the cover gorgeous!?!?

Twelve-year-old Bryce’s best-laid plans for a backpacking trip with his grandpa seem about to fall through all because his big brother, Jack, is threatening to boycott the trip. But when Bryce stumbles upon a secret treasure map in his grandpa's barn loft, he doesn't mean to steal it or unearth a painful family secret that will explain the root of the brothers’ conflict. Bryce is determined to find the treasure even if it means lying to his grandpa.

As Bryce, Jack, and Grandpa hike to a remote cabin in the Rocky Mountains, sibling rivalry clouds the brothers' judgment, and all Bryce's plans for an epic adventure go downriver. The boys must work together to survive the dangers of the wilderness, and each other, or the treasure and their family's secret may never see the light of day.

Shari Schwarz lives in Ft. Collins, Colorado near the Rocky Mountains with her husband and their four boys. TREASURE AT LURE LAKE (Cedar Fort Publishing, April 12, 2016) is her debut which reflects her love for a good survival adventure story. When she’s not reading or writing, Shari can be found freelance editing, weight-lifting, gardening or watching her boys play football, basketball, cup-stacking, or wrestling. She frequently dreams of exploring Oregon Coast beaches or plotting out her next children’s book.
