Stocking Up for Summer Reading?

I know it's still "sweater weather," but I'm ready for summer and the relaxing time it should bring. I'm also ready to read some fun books.

When you start thinking about your summer reading list, I hope you'll keep some of my books in mind. Here's a trailer for The Pirate's Bastard, a perfect sea adventure for summer. But reader beware: just like quests for pirate treasure, pirate tales rarely end in a predictable, or peaceful, manner.

Make a Wish Foundation Mermaid Dream Come True

I love this story: a young boy who dreamed of meeting a mermaid really did!

He turned into a mer-man for a day, too, and at the end of his special day, he received a gift from the mermaid - a copy of our newest Jock Avery Adventure, The Mermaid's Tale. If you haven't read the book yet, I will only tell you this was the most perfect setting for such a gift to be given.

Here's a video of Marcus' special day. Please share with your friends!

Thanks to the Make A Wish Foundation and my friend, Mermaid Linden of Mermaids in Motion, for making these special dreams come true for children. And thank you, Linden, for allowing us to model our mermaid in the story after you!
