David Gorman,
Author & Speaker

I write the Waldameer Mystery Files children's book series for readers 8-12. My books are about kids solving mysteries at Waldameer & Water World in Erie, Pennsylvania. Waldameer is one of the country's oldest amusement parks and also my family's business! Each book includes a discussion guide for teachers.

I also speak at schools and libraries!
