About this author

Steven Stickler is no rocket scientist. He will never be confused with a professional athlete. He is not (despite widespread rumors) the actor who played Cousin Oliver in The Brady Bunch, nor was he a guest drummer for the Beatles during a brief period in the mid-1960s.

He is something completely different: a writer. He began writing when he was five years of age and, perhaps due to an oversight by those in positions of authority, was never told to stop. He lives in the great Pacific Northwest of the United States, where he enjoys exploring the outdoors with his family and, of course, reading at least one book by Dr. Seuss every year.

"*I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

We jumped right into things. We go from Nate being forced into the school to suddenly being out on a mission. There was no background on the school. We didn't go with him to any class..." Read more of this review »

George Washington was a SPY?!

One simple thought struck me about halfway through this book: this is not the Revolutionary War I learned about when I was a kid. Not even close. I vaguely remember learning about the many problems folks in America had wi

I blame Jennifer Nielsen for one particularly groggy work day. This novel, ostensibly written for kids, kept me up well past my (very adult) bedtime and left me with a serious case of The False Prince hangover the next day. Can I really blame the aut ...more

Steven Stickler It is a great program for introducing kids (and adults) to some great books. We look forward to the list of books every year the way some folks look forward to the new ipad!

The Styling Librarian Nice to meet you, yes, Northwest connection is there. I do enjoy running Oregon Battle of the Books, exposes me to a load of wonderful books. I'm also an elementary school librarian.

Steven Stickler You bet and thanks for the add. We need to stick together :-)

Hi Kai, Thanks for the comment. Yep, there is a good chance you'll bump into me sipping coffee in a world-class bookstore in a city with a large supply of beautiful bridges. Uh-oh, do you think I said too much? :-; Seriously, though, really great to meet you.

Kai Strand Nice to meet you, Steven. I live in the Pacific Northwest, too. Odd to think I might run into you somewhere but would never know because of the secrecy thing. ;-)
