F. T. Bradley

Fleur (F.T.) Bradley is the author of the Double Vision trilogy, a funny middle-grade spy adventure series School Library Journal calls, "a must-read for mystery fans, including reluctant readers." Originally from the Netherlands, she now lives in Colorado Springs with her husband, two daughters, and entirely too many cats. Fleur is passionate about two things: mysteries and getting kids to read--and she happens to think the two go hand in hand. Who doesn't love a good mystery to solve? She started the Double Vision series with the hope to get (and keep!) kids excited about reading, with great results. Fleur loves doing school visits to talk to her readers.

Fans of 39 Clues and Artemis Fowl will enjoy the fun, fresh thrill ride through this humorous, action-packed adventure. In the trilogy opener, twelve-year-old Lincoln Baker finds himself in a world of trouble! First, Linc’s seemingly harmless prank on a school field trip ends in expulsion and a lawsuit. Then, two mysterious figures from a secret government agency called Pandora show up at Linc’s house with a proposition for him. Turns out Linc looks exactly like one of Pandora’s top kid agents, Benjamin Green, who vanished while on a critical spy mission in Paris. If Linc agrees to take his place, they’ll get him back in school and make that costly lawsuit disappear. But the mission is a lot more complicated than it seems. A highly valuable copy of the Mona Lisa has gone missing and now Linc must make sure it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. Too bad Linc isn’t a black belt math genius who can run a four-minute mile like his double, Ben, because he’ll need those skills to make it out alive.

45-50 minutes, plus Q&A. (Please indicate your presentation preference.)

Topic of Presentation 1: How do you become an author?
Fleur shares her journey from a young Pippi Longstocking fan to a published author in a fun, interactive presentation that shows you can do anything as long as you're willing to learn, work to improve, and have a positive attitude.

Topic of Presentation 2: George Washington Presentation to accompany Double Vision: Code Name 711
Did you know George Washington was America's first spy? As the founder of the Culper Ring, he helped overthrow the British during the Revolutionary War using clever spy tactics. During this fun, interactive presentation, we'll talk about George Washington's spy history, and little-known facts about the crucial role of his clandestine activities.

Tattered Cover will design an order form that the school should distribute in advance of the author visit, and again on the day of the event to all student attendees. 

Link to share with students and their families to order F. T.'s book: Please make sure anyone ordering online includes the name of your school in the Notes section of the order and if they'd like to pick up the book from you at the school. Please DO NOT give a book to someone who says they ordered online unless they have the printed confirmation. PLEASE KEEP THIS! You'll need to include these confirmations when returning the leftover books so you won't be charged for them! If they do ask you for a book without a confirmation, just email us the name of the student and parent's name and we can check. DEADLINE: Online orders with SCHOOL PICK UP will only be available for one week after the school visit. Orders placed after that time will need to be picked up at one of our locations, or shipped.
