S.W. Lothian is a funny and cool guy from Australia. His kids call him ‘Phil Dunphy’, because he reminds them of the dad from Modern Family. He isn’t sure whether this is a compliment or not, but he takes it as a compliment.

It’s another cool PJ tale

I have to be honest that when I first started reading this one I thought that I’d missed a book in the series. I nearly gave up reading it. The beginning seemed to be too random and disconnected with the previous book, but as...more

Thanks for your kind encouragement CD. I hope she enjoys the book. It's full of plenty of adventure. Quest Two should be out in June sometime.
Great idea to encourage her to do reviews. I follow a blog that is done by a kid who is about 11. In case you are interested in showing your daughter here is the link .... http://thiskidreviewsbooks.com/
Cheers

C.D. Sweitzer It's great that you're taking this opportunity to write children's fiction--I think at some point I'd like to take a break from adult fiction and write a few adventure stories. I'm planning to get Golden Scarab for my daughter to read over summer break, and have her practice writing a review (why not have kids write reviews in their own words?). Best of luck, and have fun with this (if nothing else, it's a nice bit of legacy to leave for kids, grandkids, etc.).

S.W. Hi, no problems, you're welcome.
