Welcome readers!Portsmouth Alarm by Terri DeMitchell

Now Available: The Portsmouth Alarm: December 1774

I write mystery novels and historical fiction for middle grade readers and young adults. My books are based in the rich landscape and history of coastal New England. The stories range in time from the American Revolution to the twenty-first century.

My characters face challenges from events they cannot control such as the chaos that exploded at the beginning of the American Revolution to roller coaster adventures at Olde Locke Beach with a host of characters including burglars, pirates and even a ghost. But what they share in common is that they meet these challenges head-on as they try to answer that most difficult of all questions: Who will I decide to be in this world?

I am delighted so many readers and teachers have joined me in the excitement of these journeys, and in those to come.
