Spencer Quinn To Write Middle Grade Series About Dog Detective

Spencer Quinn has landed a book deal for a middle grade series about a dog detective. Quinn is the author of the Chet & Bernie dog detective series for adults and the pseudonym for crime novelist Peter Abrahams.

In 2015, Scholastic will publish two Bowser and Jolene books about the new dog detective. Friedrich Agency agent Molly Friedrich negotiated the deal with Scholastic Press executive editor Rachel Griffiths. Here’s more about the series:

Bowser is a dog detective on the loose, paired with an eleven-year-old girl, Jolene. Bowser and Jolene live on the Louisiana coast with Jolene’s Grammy. When a prize stuffed marlin is stolen from Grammy’s bait and tackle shop, Jolene and Bowser decide to take on the case. But what looks like a straight forward break in soon becomes as tangled as a tourist’s fishing line.
