About this author

Ali Cross is a ninja novelist with a black belt in awesome. She lives in Utah with her kickin' husband, two sparring sons, one ninja cat, one sumo dog and four zen turtles.

Ali writes middle grade fiction under the pen name Alex Banks.


David and I have been "empty-nesters" for two weeks this summer and we are so lame . . . we missed our boys every night and couldn't wait for them to come home! Wait. That's not lame. That's awesome.

I waited my whole life to have kids and these guys have not let me down.

That's Charlie on the left and Xander on the right. This photo was taken by Adam Johnson (yes, Elana Johnson's hubby!)

Book.

I'm finding it hard to write this review without giving away spoilers...more
