Bouchercon 2023, San Diego, CA

​​​​​​I'm Fleur Bradley, and I write (and love!) mysteries. 

I'm a reluctant reader, just like so many of the kids I write for. I love a fast-paced, fun story, and I love mysteries even more. I happen to think that mysteries are a great way to get kids reading, and I often talk to educators and librarians on ways to reach reluctant readers. Sign up for my newsletter for monthly tips and the occasional cat picture... 

I hope you'll check out my books! ​Look for my brand-new middle-grade (very spooky) mystery Daybreak on Raven Island in August 2022, and my (lightly spooky) middle-grade mystery Midnight at the Barclay Hotel, in paperback now..! Midnight at the Barclay Hotel won the Colorado Book Award in the Juvenile Category, Florida's Sunshine State Young Reader Award, and is also a finalist for the Agatha Awards, the Anthony Awards, and the Reading the West Book Award.

Find out more about me, my books, and author visits at the tabs above. And shoot me an email at fleurbradley25@gmail.com; I love to hear from readers...
