Top Favorite

o'malley seriesIn this article, I’m gonna share you my top favorite mystery books and about the author of that series. My absolute favorite mystery series is the O’Malley series written by the author Dee Henderson. Dee Henderson is a Christan author who has won many awards for the books she has written. She was a daughter of a pastor and grew up in Illinois where she graduated from the University of Illinois. Although I don’t know a whole lot about the life of the author, I do know she has a passion for writing and can capture an audience with her books in the most amazing way.

Her books are so fascinating to me and so easy to get wrapped up in them while reading them. In fact, when I read the series I get so involved in the books that I forget about everything around me. On one occasion I was visiting my sister, who lives in Fayetteville Arkansas. I got so involved reading my book I forgot that I had a glass of milk on the floor by my foot. So when the neighbor came and knocked on the door I jumped, knocking the glass of milk over. Well, you know what spilled milk leads to soured carpet! So that sent me in search for carpet cleaning in Fayetteville. They did such a great job! So great that I was able to go right back into reading my book without the smell of soured milk.

One of the main reasons I love the O’Mally series so much is because they are about Jesus, family, and falling in love. As a Christan mother, I can very well relate to the stories. A lot of the writing relates to everyday living, not only does the author enter act Jesus, family, and love but she also puts heartache, difficulties and loss of a loved one in the series. Something I’m sure we can all relate too. The series is about several children who are orphaned and become so close in the orphanage that when they are of age they adopt themselves and become brothers and sisters. There are other mystery books she has written but I think the O’Mally series is by far her greatest work. I would personally love to see the series made into a movie series. I encourage you if you are a Christian that loves to read mysteries go find these books and read them. Not only are they entertaining but you can also learn some great valuable lessons from these books.

Amateur Detectives

An amateur detective is a detective that has no professional skills. They pretty much solve crime and mystery just for the fun of it. In this blog, I will be telling you about some of the amateur detective’s that I have found very entertaining to read and learn about.

Nancy Drew is an amateur detective that has captured the audience of the youth in this world. Nancy Drew is a fictional character in a mystery fiction series created by a publisher named Edward Stratemeyer. In the year 1930 was when this character made her first appearance. In 1959, the books were revised and shortened due to printing costs. During the process of being revised the character became less bold and more feminine. In the 1980’s the series brought forth a new version of Nancy Drew, one that was more professional and mature. Sadly the original Nancy Drew Mnancy drewysteries were ended in 2004. Later that same year Nancy Drew’s character was replaced by a series called “Girl Detective”. They made this character be more like the world we know today. This character drives around in a sports vehicle and had a cell phone. In 2013, I was ecstatic to find out that the “Girl Detective” series ended and the great Nancy Drew made her way back into existence. The popularity of this character has spread worldwide today. More than 80 million copies of the books have been sold and the books have been translated into over languages. Nancy Drew has been featured in five films, two television shows, and many computer games. Her books have been and will continue being one of the world most popular amateur mystery detective’s enjoyed by the youth of this world today.

The Hardy boys, Frank and Joe Hardly, are a set of amateur detective’s that are brothers. The Hardy boys have solved many mysteries by themselves but have occasionally solved a mystery or two with the great Nancy Drew. The Hardy boys were also created by Edward Stratemeyer and have made an appearance in a variety of ways since the beginning of their existent in 1927. Just like the Nancy Drew series, the Hardy boys series has been revised and simplified in an attempt to compete with television. The Hardy boys were also replaced by a different series but since then have been brought back to existence. There has been over a million copies of the books sold each year, and each year additional volumes have been published. Television shows and computer games have also had the Hardy boys featured in them. Merchandise, such as lunchboxes and jeans, have been made for our youth to enjoy today.

Famous Detectives

Mystery and crime have been a part of the world’s history for hundreds of years. So, I’m sure you have somewhat of a clue what the term mystery and detective means but let’s see what the dictionary’s definition is.murders in the rue morguePNG

Mystery:
1. Something that is difficult or impossible to understand or explain.
2. A novel, play, or movie dealing with puzzling crime, especially in murder.

Detective:
A person whose occupation is to investigate and solve crimes.

The first fictional detective character was C. Auguste Dupin created by Edgar Allen Poe. In 1841, he made his first appearance in Poe’s “The Murders in the Rue Morge”. This character was by no means considered a professional detective, his imagination was so creative that he would even put himself in the mind of a criminal. The asherlock holmesuthor created the strength of his talents so strong that he appears to be able to read minds. His mystery solving motivation seems to change throughout his stories. Even though he was not the most famous detective, his character ended up laying the groundwork for other fictional detectives to come into existence. In fact, Poe created the Dupin character before the word “detective” was even coined.

Sherlock Holmes has been one of the fans most favorite fictional detectives in literature for a very long time. He is a fictional private detective, who has also been known as a “consulting detective”, created by the amazing British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. His character first originated sometime in the 1800’s and is still popular today. He has become so popular that his character has appeared in many novels and short stories. Even though he was not the first fictional detective he has become the most well-known detective in history. Holmes’s fame and popularity have become so great that many have believed him to be a real person and not a fictional character. His character has been adapted into stage and radio plays, television, movies and video games for over a hundred years.

Now who is considered “The World’s Greatest Detective”? You got it, the great superhero known as Batman! Batman first came about in May of 1939, his character was created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger. Bruce Wayne, an American billionaire, and owner of Wayne Enterprises was batman’s secret identity. His decision to become batman started when he witnessed the murder of his father and mother as a child, he wanted revenge on criminals so he made an oath to pursue justice for his parents. He trained himself both physically and mentally to fight crime and even crafted his own costume. Batman doesn’t possess any superpowers, unlike most superhero’s, but rather relies on his own skills, ability and willpower to fight for justice. Batman made his first appearance in comic books but has now been adapted into a variety of media such as radio, television, video games and movies. In fact, kids around this world have fallen so in love with the great batman that toys has been made for the kids enjoyment.
