Shereece Connolly-McLeish

Co-authors Shereece Connolly-McLeish and Lisa-Ann Thompson have been friends for over ten years. Their vision to create a captivating book series for young and old audiences alike came from their children. The Adventures of Ajalon & Kayla have the two children traveling through time and searching for unique artifacts.

The Adventures of Ajalon & Kayla series is a fun way for children to learn historical facts through stories filled with action and adventure.
