Quick version: I write fantasy books for kids 8+ and adventurous grown-ups. My stories feature secret societies, monsters, magic, mystery, and lots of adventure-style action. Boys like them. Girls like them. Parents like to steal them.
My calling card is books for kids you'll be happy your kids are reading.
The Casey Grimes books explore a world of monster control academies, Hyena Toads and unwanted invisibility. This all takes place in an alternate USA where—as you may have guessed—monsters stalk the suburbs. The books have received numerous glowing reviews.
If that sounds interesting, feel free to head straight to my author shop for a look-see. If you're still on the fence, maybe a free short story will win you over (paying customers get this one too...plus more).
As for me, I'm a husband, dad, and lifetime tree-climber. When I'm not writing, I'm usually fixing my house, coercing—uh, politely asking—my kids to pick up their rooms, or pursuing one of my too-many hobbies.
These include, but are not limited to:
evading capture by Jamaican secret agents (long story)
reading other people's books
Over and out,
P.S. There's a hidden page on this site with extra Casey material and I can only hope you've already found it. But if your investigative skills are, well...not that great...here's a hint: one of the portals is nearby.
I read 'em all and respond (usually) within 24 hours.
