Profile: Lauren E. Smith, Author of Ashley Enright Investigations

Lauren E. Smith didn't have to look very far to find her first editor, writes Katherine Lewis of the Naples (FL) Daily News. Her 10-year old nephew was happy to read her first book. His enthusiastic response prompted Smith to submit her manuscript for publication, the result being her first children's mystery, Ashley Enright Investigations.

Ashley Enright Investigations by Lauren E. SmithSynopsis from Publish America, Smith's publisher: Ashley isn’t nosey, just curious and intelligent. When she looks out her bedroom window one night, she notices a light flickering in the window of an abandoned lighthouse. She knows that something is not right, but doesn’t want to call the police just yet. Ashley investigates the mystery with her best friend, Josh Stewart, who draws comic books featuring superheroes. What the two friends discover at the lighthouse in Donnybrook will change someone’s life forever.

In her article, Lewis continues that Smith, a fan of mysteries herself, wanted to share her love of the genre with children. "I wanted to tap into innocence and be creative. I also wanted to write a book that didn't have the violence that so many books do," she said. "The characters will tell me when I am done," she adds. "Ashley is 12 years old and I want to keep the characters around that age."

Ashley Enright Investigations has been a success for Smith who has signed a contract to get the second book of the series published. Ashley Enright and the Mystery at Millers Pond should be available early next year.
