The Lost Journals of Bud Wiper

by S.M. Morgan

GENRE:   Middle Grade Fiction

"Help!! My head is being lowered into the swirling vortex of a toilet!”

My name is Teddy, and I’m in the 6th grade. It’s my first day at a different school, and so far, the only person I know is Zane, the school bully. I was just your everyday kid trying to stay off everyone’s radar, but when I met my new best friend, Bud Wiper, everything changed.

Bud is a 6th grade millionaire from 60 years ago.

Yep, that’s right, Bud Wiper is a treasure hunter from the 1940’s who left behind his journal full of life and adventure, and even though we’ve never met, I think he might be the only thing that gets me through the 6th grade alive.

The Lost Journals of Bud Wiper is a fantastic story of bravery and friendship, perfect for kids, middle school students, and adults.


Leo jumped out of his car and stood in front of Ramsey. “ This not good, mister. Not good. Tell him, perdoon stary, do it now, or they will surely kill us.”

Give them the book Ramsey,” I said, motioning toward the guard.

on his face and then repeated what Leo had told him to say, “Perdoon Stary.” It sounded— strange hearing it from Ramsey with his American accent. 

The guards busted out laughing hysterically. Ramsey turned to Leo. “ What did you make me say? ”

“Old fart,” came a voice in a thick Russian accent.

I turned to see a man that looked like he was in charge step forward. He wore a large rounded bill military cap with a red band and golden emblem around the center. “ Nothing in Russia is private. Now give me the book.”

Q&A With the Author 

What did you enjoy most about writing this book? 

The most enjoyable part of writing The Lost Journals of Bud Wiper was being able to explore my own creativity and imagination. I was able to create this parallaxing world with characters that I could relate to and that I found interesting. It was also a great way to express my thoughts and feelings in a creative way. Additionally, I enjoyed the challenge of finishing a book and the satisfaction of seeing it come to life.

Do you have any other books you are working on that you can tell us about? 

I am developing the plot for The Lost Journals of Bud Wiper Vol. 2 right now, in addition to experimenting with short novellas that will focus on just my main character Bud Wiper. These will be short adventures that Bud has written in his journals that we get to explore.

Can you tell us about what you have planned for the future? 

Honestly, I am excited about Vol. 2 in the Bud Wiper series, and I have taken so much of what I learned from Vol. 1 and will expand on future volumes. I think some writers aren't sure where a start will take them(sometimes it is just one book and done, which is great!), but with Bud Wiper, I had a pretty good idea that I wanted it to be serialized, and that it followed a specific format that I know is solid... I guess you have to read the book to understand what I am saying :).

How long have you been writing?

I have been writing on and off since I was about 8 or 9 years old. It can be a struggle to find time just to sit down and write, let alone have the energy to daydream about your ideas. But so far, I am managing.

Anything more you would like to say to your readers and fans?

Thank you to those who have supported me and please do keep an eye out for more Bud Wiper coming very soon!
