 Do you like adventure stories with lots of humor, fun, and suspense? I love reading and writing them. 

Here's one you may like.


Vin and the Dorky Duet

What do magnetic compost heaps, man-eating bubble baths, and exploding fish tanks have in common? They are part of the pickle Vin gets himself into when he takes up his sister's challenge. Vin is a soccer-playing, trumpet-playing seventh-grader who is challenged by his  sister, Meg, to make friends with an unsociable nerd and introduce her to the nerd's hunky brother. She promises Vin a David Beckham autographed soccer jersey if he can do it. He has a brilliant plan. The trouble is that it doesn't go quite as he expects . . .

The book (ebook and paperback) is on sale at Amazon, Kindle and other stores.

Maybe you prefer stories about dragons?

How about a nosy red, Welsh dragon called Dewi who likes to make bad jokes and who is clobbered by a falling rat? A falling rat? That's right! Dewi's curiosity about the "rat rain" leads him on a series of adventures in which he must use his wits and firepower against an evil baron and his mad chemistry lab. 

Dewi and the Seeds of Doom, a humor-filled, cliff-hanging, mystery adventure for middle-graders who like turning pages fast. It's available on Amazon, Kindle, and other stores (in ebook and paperback formats).  Click here to read excerpts from Dewi and the Seeds of Doom.
