Guest Post: Meet Carly From Asbury High

Carly, on Monday morning, are you happy to go to school, or sad?

This question is a mixed bag for me, for sure. Coming off of a weekend, Mondays clearly have a bad rep to begin with…and I’ve never been a star student. Therefore, at first I guess it’s easy to say that Monday mornings make me sad…especially because Monday means sitting through classes all over again.

But, the more I really think about this question, the more easy it becomes to change my thinking. I mean, think about it, where else—other than a school—do you have so much opportunity to learn insider information and the newest gossip! Honestly. I’m known as someone in the know, and school is the perfect breeding ground to build one’s knowledge base of things that actually matter—like, who has been secretly seeing who, or what fashions are in or out, and even just facts about my fellow peers that I’d otherwise be blind or deaf to. Plus, to be frank, most teachers don’t test on Mondays, as even they feel some sadness over the loss of their weekend, and freedom.

Oh! And, unless I know I have a presentation on a Monday, us cheerleaders, tend to have the best practice on Mondays—we get to the chance to think up new routines or cheers, seeing as we now have a fresh week to review it!

I guess when it comes down to it, I do like Monday mornings…but nothing still beats a gameday Friday morning!

About The Book:
Asbury High and the Parcels of Poison (Asbury High Book 2)

Asbury’s fearless foursome is back!

Is their favorite hangout to blame for recent food poisonings? Or is there something more sinister at work?

After an unprecedented first year of high school, the gang is ready for a relaxing summer vacation, although in Asbury, that may be easier said than done. This summer, the Food Network is running a summer special highlighting local hot spots, Carly, Maddie, Pilot and Cornelious are psyched to have the world’s best restaurant featured—their very own Brady’s! In fact, Maddie can almost forget that her arch-nemesis, Alexis Johnson, will also be on TV for winning the logo design for Caulfield’s Candies… almost.

However, after patrons start falling ill, shoobies and locals alike point the finger at Brady’s and rumors of food poisoning. When Brady’s threatens to close its doors, Pilot realizes his mother’s job is in jeopardy, as well as his future in Asbury. With the aid of Cornelious’ wealthy cousin Dane, who spends every summer with the quartet, the gang is once again thrust into an investigation. Unfortunately, they find themselves thwarted by both the local police (who believe their recent success was due to luck, rather than skill), and Cornelious’ father, who has decided to run for Mayor of Asbury and cautions his son on the need to maintain a spotless public image.

With a new pancake house on the boardwalk, Mainlanders invading their beaches, and the Pitbulls sneaking around and terrorizing shoobies (as usual), there’s no shortage of suspects. But can they solve the case before the summer, and Brady’s, are finished?

About The Author:
For as long as she could remember, Kelly Brady Channick loved making up stories, and leaving her listeners/readers on the edge of their seats.

Perhaps that’s why she always managed to talk herself out of trouble…

After graduating from NJ’s own Ocean City High School, Kelly accepted a basketball scholarship to Holy Family University, in Philadelphia. As a lifelong athlete, Kelly understands the importance of teamwork and overcoming adversity, something she hopes translates into her books.

Before writing page-turners, she taught first, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grade — like a dessert menu, she simply had to test them all out. But her favorite job is the one she’s now doing full time: writing. Kelly loves to craft whodunit mysteries, leading readers through various twists and turns filled with red-herrings, hidden clues, and more peculiar characters than a reality show.

Kelly lives in South Jersey with her handsome husband, energetic baby boy, two cookie-stealing dogs, and an awfully smart cat.
