Why 6th grader Nathan gets a big thank you from me today

I don't like to toot my own horn, because... Well, it's sort of tacky. And if you read this blog, you know I wrote a book. Nuf said.

But the best part about writing for kids is when I get a good review--from a kid.


Like sixth grader Nathan, who gave Double Vision five stars, and said, "What I really like about this book is that it is humorous. For example, in the prologue, it talks about how the story isn't about Percy Jackson or Spiderman in a really funny way."

Nathan, you made my day. So here's a big thank you.

  2. I don't often get a review straight from kids, so yes, this was very nice :-) Good to hear that the book hit the mark.

  3. There is not enough humor in the world for young boys, is there? I can see this already with my grandson who is only attracted to books that make him laugh. Congratulations for making boys laugh.

  5. That boy knows his books! Kids are more perceptive than we adults give them credit for.
