Book Description

Shirley Link & The Safe Case by Ben Zackheim

The Indie Book of the Day for 1st of February, 2013!

Genre: Young Adult, Mystery

Who is Shirley Link?

“I put on my kindest face for the poor man. I even smile a little. Marie slashes her fingers across her neck, telling me to stop with the fake grin. She must think I look creepy again. I keep smiling, though. I need to practice. I have a problem with people thinking I’m mean.” – Shirley Link

And so it goes, for Shirley Link. Brilliant, brazen and still a whole year away from her driver’s permit. Sure, she’s only 14 years old and has homework to do, but she’ll put it aside for the right mystery! 
Shirley Link’s kickoff adventure pits her against a thief who’s stolen thirty thousand dollars from her school’s safe. Usually, she’d wrap that kind of case up before The Big Bang Theory. But there’s one intriguing, frustrating detail. The half-ton safe disappeared too! Shirley must find the culprit quickly, or else her beloved principal, Mr. Reese, will lose his job. As she digs deeper, Mr. Reese looks more and more guilty. Will Shirley save him, or get him tossed in jail?
“This is how it is to be Shirley Link, the best detective in the world, if I do say so myself. I can spot a lie like most people spot a zit. I see connections where they hide best. And I get in trouble every time I try to tell people what I do with my free time. Only a handful know about my talent. I prefer to keep it that way.” – Shirley Link

Read Sample

I was one of the first writers to jump into the blogging scene, as Joystiq’s first Senior Editor. My team and I led the blog’s meteoric rise to the top of the blogosphere, writing headlines like “Pac-Man Hat defies any fashion sense – buy one now!” Good times.

But I wasn’t satisfied with just writing about games, so I made some. After producing titles for Sony and ESPN I moved on to AOL’s where my team’s online games (IceBreakers, Penguin Pirates and Book of Treasures) have been played by over ten million people.

Now? Now I’m all about Shirley. The Shirley Link series grew from my need for a teen hero who knows what she’s doing. There’s no stumbling across victory with Shirley. She plans eight moves ahead to ensure victory. I could write her forever, and plan to. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have other worlds ready to spring!

In fact, I can’t wait to roll out my next series, The Camelot Kids.

The Camelot Kids is a fantasy adventure set in 2012. Merlin travels the world to recruit 150 descendants of the Knights of the Round Table — every last one of them teenagers. He needs their help to save the hidden kingdom of New Camelot. Sure, the greatest wizard to ever live may be prepared for the random rogue wizard, or a hive of hungry dragons, but is Merlin ready for The Camelot Kids?

I live in Massachusetts, surrounded by the Forbidden Forest, with my wife and son. I’m scheduled to begin teaching classes in digital marketing at New York’s School of Visual Arts MFA Visual Narrative program in 2015.
