Serena Schreiber’s writing career began in Brooklyn, New York (1973) when her third grade teacher published a collection of student prose and poetry. Her debut novel for middle-grade children, Finn's Ship, won a Royal Palm Literary Award in 2011. Finn has never been on a cruise ship before, much less stowed away on one. He's never impersonated a fairy tale character, sought lost treasure or gotten to know his real dad. Annual visits to family in Germany are normally highlighted by skateboarding, playing soccer with cousins, and getting spoiled by his grandparents. But all that is about to change when a mysterious foreigner hands Finn his father's diary. He and best friend Burrito embark on the pursuit of his previously unknown inheritance -- a fortune in Nazi Gold.
