News from Alba Arango


Parents!!  Enjoy some FREE activities for kids!

I’ve added some FREE activities to download and print out (word searches, mazes, etc.). Just click here and have fun! I’ve even included a (rather difficult) matching challenge. Can YOU match all 51 European capital cities to their countries? Good luck!

REVIEW: Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger

Read my review of Keeper of the Lost Cities on the Book Reviews page.


Are you on Threads? It’s pretty cool, yeah? Follow me @AlbaArango.007. Should be fun!! (I post some kinda random stuff, so don’t be surprised if you see some corny jokes and pics of my beagle, Pumpkin.)


The long awaited seventh installment of the fast-paced, action-packed Decoders Mysteries has finally arrived! The Dragon’s Horn is now available for purchase.

Kindle Unlimited!

Do you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited? If so, you can read ALL my books FOR FREE. How cool is that??? Not sure what that is? It’s a subscription service for Kindle books (think of Netflix but with books!). Just click here to see what I’m talking about. Enjoy!

Teachers/Parents… need a 15 minute break?

Introduce your kids to the fun and exciting mystery genre!

In this 15 minute video, I introduce the characters of the Decoders Mysteries series and then do a short reading from the first book AND challenge the audience to see if they can solve the clues before the Decoders. So, sit back, relax, and take a 15 minute break while I do the work!

Are you a fan of Bookbub (the service that notifies you when books go on sale)? As a reader, I use it all the time (literally, every day). But I also have an author page there, and if you “Follow” me, they’ll send you a note when I have a book on sale. Super cool, yeah? Just click here and click follow!


Congrats to Problems in Prague, Jeopardy in Geneva, Bedlam in Berlin, and Danger in Dublin for all receiving the Readers’ Favorite 5 Star Review!
