Hey--a Dizzy Spotting on that Crazy Interweb

Okay. So, I did it. I googled Dizzy Fantastic and Her Flying Bicycle. When I did, I found a news source called "Campbell Patch." In her article celebrating Read Across America Day, Linda Covella recommended one book in particular--Dizzy Fantastic and Her Flying Bicycle. You can find the article over in the In the Media section of this website.

Thanks, Ms. Covella. I'm honored.


P.S. I've created a new page featuring some of the reviews my books have received from fellow writers. Thanks to all and to all a good . . . afternoon

Thanks, Withrow!

This morning I had the privilege of visiting Withrow Elementary. What a treat it was. The kids, their hardworking teachers, and their creative librarian welcomed me as warmly as an author can be welcomed. They made signs. They awarded a homemade check for Nelson's ice cream to me and my wife. They'd completed a scavenger hunt on this very website. They'd all read my book ahead of time.

I read a chapter of Dizzy Fantastic and then fielded questions. Questions about me, the book, the next book, and more. I tried to keep up with the questions, but I couldn't make a dent in them. Of the 140 students, it seemed at least 100 of them always had a hand in the air. I'm confident you all know more about me as a writer than I do by this point.

Thank you, thank you for your enthusiasm, Withrow. I hope to see you all soon.

Skipping Stones--the (Almost) Final Cover

Here 'tis, all, for your viewing pleasure. I'm biased, of course, but I think it's about the coolest cover ever.
