Introducing My First Middle Grade Novel!

It's been a few days since I released my first middle grade science fiction, Jump Boys: SOS and I'm still giddy with excitement! I swear I almost feel more thrilled over this release than I did over my very first book. I'm not sure why, exactly--maybe because Jump Boys is only the second book I ever wrote and I wrote it for my boys. This was a story for them, and now it's a story for your kids, too.

It's available as an ebook at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Kobo, with print coming soon. You can add it to Goodreads, too!

A dare gone terribly wrong.

An SOS from another universe.

A threat from right next door.

Thirteen-year-old twin brothers Jayce and Val are about to jump the multi-verses on a dangerous dare, but true danger is closer to home than they realize.

The Jupiter Prime colony has been orbiting the stormy gas giant for nineteen years and all anyone wants is to get back to Earth. Sent to preserve the best and brightest of the population, a grievous error in the Prime’s navigation coordinates sent the colony to an alternate dimension with no way to return to the Earth they call home.

In a society where technical expertise is valued above all else, Jayce and Val are among the most privileged—until they uncover their uncle’s plot to claim dominion over space and time. While attempting to rescue a lone girl from a post-apocalyptic earth, Val will come face to face with space pirates and Jayce will lay his life on the line for the sake of his brother and the little girl who holds the key to time itself.

Don't forget IndieReCon starts TOMORROW!
