special join between 3 tables

I need a query to find an totals for items and writeins for each company.  I have an Order table, an Orderdetails table, and a OrderWritein table.  Both OrderDetails and OrderWriteIns have a Price and Quantiy column.  I wrote this with joins as follows:
Select C.CompanyName,sum(D.price*D.Quantity) itmAmt,sum (W.price*W.Quantity) wiAmt,max(O.OrderDate) [Last Order]
From tblOrders O
Inner Join tblCompany C on O.companyid = C.companyid
Inner Join tblOrdersDetail D on O.orderid=D.orderid
Inner Join tblOrdersWriteIns W on O.orderid=W.orderid
group by C.companyName

The problem is when I join the write in table it does a cross join.  if I have 10 items and 10 writeIns then the sum is for the 100 rows.  How do I write the query so each company has the correct sum for both itemsDetail and writeIns?

this will work better..
Select OC.CompanyName,
 (select sum(D.price*D.Quantity) from tblOrdersDetail D where OC.orderid=D.orderid) itmAmt,
 (select sum (W.price*W.Quantity) from tblOrdersWriteIns W where OC.orderid=W.orderid) wiAmt,
 OC.[Last Order]
From (
 select C.CompanyName, max(O.OrderDate) [Last Order]
 FROM tblOrders O
 Inner Join tblCompany C on O.companyid = C.companyid
 group by C.companyName
) OC

imitchie,
Thanks for responding.
on the first response I got an error saying orderid was not in the group by clause.
In the second response got an error that orderId is an invalid column.  I guess because it is not selected in the sub query.
Your responses gave me some ideas so I tried the following code.  It seems to work.  



select companyName,sum(itmAmt),sum(wiAmt),max(Orderdate)
from
(Select O.orderid,C.CompanyName,
(select sum(D.PriceSold*D.qty) from tblOrdersDetail D where O.orderid=D.orderid)itmAmt,
(select sum(W.RetailPrice*W.Qty) from tblOrders_Writeins W where O.orderid=W.orderid) wiAmt,
O.orderdate
from tblOrders O
inner join tblCompany C on O.companyid=C.companyid
Group by C.companyName,O.orderid,O.orderdate
) query
group by companyName
Order by CompanyName

You are right. Good on you to find a solution! This would probably have worked, and does less work

Select OC.CompanyName,
 (select sum(D.price*D.Quantity) from tblOrdersDetail D where OC.orderid=D.orderid) itmAmt,
 (select sum (W.price*W.Quantity) from tblOrdersWriteIns W where OC.orderid=W.orderid) wiAmt,
 OC.[Last Order]
From (
 select O.OrderID, C.CompanyName, max(O.OrderDate) [Last Order]
 FROM tblOrders O
 Inner Join tblCompany C on O.companyid = C.companyid
 group by C.companyName
) OC
