Bernice Takes a Plunge

(4 customer reviews)

Bernice Peppercorn’s imagination fills her mind and her notebooks with adventure and intrigue. She sees crimes where there are none and races to the local police station daily to fulfil her civic duty.

When a real robbery is committed in town, Bernice dives into detective mode and stumbles across vital clues that could find the thieves. No one believes her except Ike, a one-legged fisherman who lives down at the wharf.

About The Author

Ann Harth

Ann Harth

Ann Harth writes fiction and non-fiction for children and adults. Strong, interesting female characters creep into most of her books, and many arrive with a sense of humour.

Before becoming a writer, mentor and developmental editor in Far North Queensland, Ann studied psychology, waited tables, bar-tended, picked strawberries, worked as a clown and punched keys on various tills. She also spent ten years working with children with special needs. Ann taught writing for the Australian College of Journalism for eight years before taking the leap into freelance work.

Ann is the Far North Queensland representative for The Society of Children’s Book Writers and illustrators. She’s had a number of fiction and non-fiction children’s books published in Australia and the UK and over 120 short stories sold internationally.

When not tapping the keys, Ann stuffs a notebook into her pack and searches for remote places to camp, hike or explore.
