The book narrates how Sammi Jo wanted a new friend as she heads to the shore with her parents for summer. She is an only child and plans to spend a very lonely summer at their cottage while her parents work on their latest books. Much to her surprise, she meets a new friend in a most unusual place! Sammi Jo gets to explore the sea with her new friend, Screech, as her guide.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Stockton loves to read and has enjoyed reading her whole life. As a child, she was a military brat and so lived all over the world. Most places did not have television, or at least not American television, and because she is an only child, and there were no electronic devices in those days, she read… Anything she could get her hands on!
She lives in Colorado, where she can enjoy all four seasons on any given day! She loves meeting and talking to new people from all walks of life and the diversity of life in Colorado allows her to meet and connect with many interesting people! Writing a children’s story has been a dream for many years, and she hopes to be able to add many more Sammi Jo stories to her repertoire in the future.
