About the Author

Sherrill Joseph was a shy kid whose BFF was Nancy Drew. From her, the author learned to seek adventures, be kind and fair, and help others everywhere. Convinced early on that she was an architect in a former life, Sherrill was receptive to the magic of her San Diego neighborhood's historic houses. To this day, she dramatizes those old "castles," filling them with mysteries, extraordinary staircases, and exaggerated occurrences. Once retired in 2013 from teaching kids for thirty-five years, the child in Sherrill created the award-winning series the Botanic Hill Detectives Mysteries with a twist of history so her grandkids and all kids can forever gallop with her and her four sleuths in their standalone cases after clues to nab the baddies.


"Join four teenage sleuths in Jacaranda Street: Gravestone Image as they uncover the secrets of Edgar Allan Poe's mysterious 'true, last work.' Packed with suspense, intrigue, Poe-like puzzles, and cryptic clues, the novel weaves together the captivating aura of Poe's legacy with a super-fun thriller. Prepare yourself for a re-evaluation of Poe's life and work as the young gumshoes unravel the enigmatic hints." -SUSAN AMPER, PhD, Professor of English, Poe scholar, and author of How to Write about Edgar Allan Poe and the forthcoming Edgar A.
