Do you know what's better than a good review? A good review from an actual reader. I'll let eleven-year-old Nictaf tell you what he thinks about my new book.

"The Counterfeit Father was an extremely good read that was fun and fast-paced."

And in case you missed it, he also said:
"I cannot wait for book two, because this book made me laugh out loud!  I would recommend this book for all ages; everyone will love it."

I don't know about everyone. 


But I do know this, Nictaf, you'll be able to read book two, A GANG OF SLEUTHS, before you turn twelve. That's a promise.

Coming Soon...Book 1

"From the outside, 13 year old Tony looks like he has quite the life:  
A whole estate to himself. 
A fangirl he flirts with online. 
A pet monkey. (His third!) 
Until you notice the wheelchair. Or that he only speaks with his mother by intercom. Or that he doesn't seem to know who his real father is. 
And now, to save his home from a mysterious trust, Tony will have to ride in a broken-down motorcycle with someone who may not be who he seems, and solve the biggest mystery of all—Who he really is."

What do you think?

I haven't been blogging, and it's been five years since my last book. Good to know I haven't been just wasting my time mowing, right?

I'm calling this series, The Tony Pandy Mysteries. After the main character. 

Book 1 comes out October 6th, and I'm currently running a giveaway on Goodreads. This is for two signed copies, and I would be thrilled if a reader of this blog was a winner.

The print edition is available for pre-order on Amazon right now. Ebook will be available in September.

Now, back to writing book 2. I'm not going to let another five years go by.

My Daughter's Growing Up

My daughter, Sparkly, is heading off to college.

Not to the school that, at 36k a year, promised her an iPad. Or to the 50k school who promised a cruise.


To the one offering the best education.

Imagine that.

Tales of An Indie Author: Letting Fans Know About New Books

Introducing my sidekick, Mailchimp: The monkey who collects emails instead of bananas. No indie author should be without a way for fans to keep up with their favorite authors' new books.

At least, not this one.

Sign up here to be among the very first to hear about my new books.

Opps. Did I let it slip I've got a new book coming out?

Bad, PV.

At least I didn't reveal it's a mystery with action adventure. The first in a series.

There, I did it again.

Next thing you'll know there'll be a cover reveal and sample book description. Just watch.
