Fred’s Used Websites Builds and Designs Website for Best-Selling Children’s Auth

Fred’s Used Websites, a Loveland-based website development company known for its focus on customization, has enhanced and expanded the website for Debbie Dadey, best-selling children’s author nationally known for “The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids”series. The new landing page entices visitors to delve deeper into the site, including a set of pages for Dadey’s most recent book series Mermaid Tales, published in May by Simon & Schuster. “The Lost Princes,” fifth in the series, launched this month.

The site provides a user-friendly platform for her young readers and a curriculum-focused section designed for teachers, which acts as a supplement to her books. It provides her readers a place to gain access to other fun games and tools related to her popular book series. This includes complete teaching units, games, writing and activities relevant to her stories. The website was specially designed to make it easy for Dadey to add a variety of multimedia content and pages to meet the needs of her readers. A different page style for each of her different book series allows visitors to the site to access uniquely themed content corresponding to each book series. In conjunction with local designer Lori Evans, Fred’s Used Websites also brought a fresh look to the website to appeal to children, parents and teachers alike.

“What impressed me most about working with Fred’s Used Websites was their ability to take my basic framework of ideas and create an attractive, functional website that supports my books while providing an interactive way for me to communicate with fans,” said Dadey. “I now have a resource to help children pursue their passion of writing by taking on fun writing projects; for teacher’s to enhance their classrooms using my books and online guides and for parents to connect with their children through reading. The website is the ideal platform for the variety of resources that we have to support growing and learning through our book series.”

Dadey, a one-time Colorado resident, chose Fred’s Used Websites after learning about the company through a mutual friend in the area. The company’s capabilities, coupled with co-owner Maryjo Morgan’s enthusiasm for and understanding of writers as a freelance writer herself, sealed the deal.

“This website represents mutual inspiration; because the website is so functional, Debbie is inspired to do more with the website. In turn, her books are so great and colorful; it inspires us regarding what we can add to further enhance the functionality and continually make it better,” said Morgan. “Debbie is also a great client – the last thing she needs is for her website enhancements to be cumbersome and time consuming. She is proof that working to develop an easy-to-use, resourceful and nicely designed website can support business and product goals.”
