‘The SECRET of APPLEGATE FARM’ is the first book of The Anderson Girls Books. In this launching of The Anderson Girls Series, follow Noelle and Alaina Anderson where ‘ intriguing summer adventure at an old farmhouse leads three teenagers into exciting explorations that they cannot resist.’

“Fall in love with the characters as I have in real life. Let this first book of the series become ‘Something Special’ bringing the characters to life inside your heart as it did inside my heart with each stroke of the pen,” says the author. “It is also a joy to write these adventure books and include our girls as characters in a series of books that can become so vibrant, uplifting, and truly a lot of fun. The world could use a little more writing that is good, wholesome, and fun and yet… something that can still let teenagers be teenagers.”

Through a project called ‘Design My Book Cover’, author Mark Jones extended an opportunity for the students at Gordo Elementary School to design the book cover for the launching of the first book in this wonderful adventure series of books, ‘The Anderson Girls Books’. This unique book cover is the result of a joint effort and tremendous team project between the author, the school, and the students.
