A deadly sledding hill and a missing little girl!
Lanny and Coe, two young brothers, have been told repeatedly not to go anywhere near the deadly hill by their house, let alone sled down it. But when they wake up to a foot of snow on the ground and the snow day they had hoped for, the forbidden hill is all Lanny can think about. After wrecking their sled deep in the woods, losing the family heirloom in the process, and summoning the courage to sneak out of the house in the middle of the night, the two brothers make a horrifying discovery deep in the dark snowy woods: a face frozen in the ice!
They realize that something terrible has happened, but their collective conscience won’t allow them to just sneak back inside and forget what they saw.
Now, in order to save the little girl, they must do the most terrifying thing of all: wake their parents up and tell them everything. When they do, they realize that the situation is more dangerous than they could have possibly imagined.
THE FACE IN THE ICE is the first book in a stand-alone middle grade series called THE ADVENTURES OF LANNY AND COE. It features two young brothers who’s natural curiosity and taste for adventure get them into dangerous situations in which they must learn important life lessons in order to solve spine-tingling, chill inducing mysteries.

Corry Compton is an indie author who was born and raised in a small town in Northeast Oklahoma. He has since moved to Lincoln, NE, gotten married, had four rambunctious boys, and used his very limited spare time to write his first children’s, middle-grade novel. As an early reader, Corry gravitated to books written by Judy Blume and Bill Wallace. Anything that was funny, mysterious, and just a little bit suspenseful. Growing up, his favorite books were: ” Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing”, “Trapped in Death Cave”, and “Danger on Panther’s Peak.”
His characters Lanny, Coe, and Brecky are based off his own children and have not been exaggerated too far beyond the truth. These days, he still loved to read, but his brain is always on overdrive trying to think of new and creative ways to tell stories that would have kept him up reading late into the night.
