About Dale McElhinney

Dale McElhinney   
Dale began writing mysteries and adventures when he was in fifth grade. His teacher required students to write at least one page every day. He began to write serial adventures so that he didn't have to come up with a new idea each day. He was inspired to write The Camp Soaring Eagle Mysteries and The Camp Mountain Top Mysteries when his son, Shaun, and his daughter, Katie, first went to overnight summer camps. Since they would not be home for their nightly bedtime stories, he wrote them each a daily episode and mailed it to them. The stories became so popular that their cabin leaders read them for story time each night. Dale loves practical jokes (as you'll see in his stories), reading, listening to early jazz and blues, drinking coffee, and, of course, camping. He holds a doctorate in clinical psychology and has been involved in children and youth ministries for over 20 years. Dale enjoys speaking at children’s retreats and church ministry conferences. He and his wife Deborah have been married for over 30 years. They live in Abington, Pennsylvania with a very noisy parrot named Sunset and a four pound red poodle named Zoey.
