‘Outer Banks Mom’ releases first book in series

On November 30, Audra Krieg released “The Parker House,” a middle grade book for ages 8-12, filled with adventure and mystery. The book is the first in a series of three titled “The Fishwrap Series.”

The tale follows Joey and Finn, two friends who seem to stir up trouble wherever they go. A century old mystery and a love of adventure take Joey and Finn deep into the haunted woods of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina where they uncover the fascinating secrets of Sam Parker.

Once the boys begin to dig into the past, they will stop at nothing to uncover the truth about what really happened to Sam Parker and his family. The story is filled with local Outer Banks legends and attractions and takes the reader on a journey through the Outer Banks.

The mystery series was born from multiple local legends that fascinated Krieg. From there, an idea to have kids dig into these old stories and see if they can solve the century old mysteries was born. The mom of four and blogger wove her experiences as she raises her family on North Carolina coast into the book. Local businesses mentioned in the book include Art’s Place, Ocean Blvd., Black Pelican Restaurant and Southern Shores Pizza.

Audra describes her first self-published book: “This book is sure to captivate those that love a good mystery and even the reluctant reader by combining Outer Banks mysteries with the inadvertent trouble-making of friends to create stories that will keep you on the edge of your seat! The long friendship and comradery between best friend duo Joey and Finn is relatable and makes for a fun read with likeable characters. When the pair finds clues to the disappearance of a man from 1884, they’ll stop at nothing to uncover the truth!”

The Parker House is available for purchase on Amazon. More information on the series at OuterBanksMom.com.

Krieg and her husband Jason reside in Kitty Hawk with their four children.
