The Backpack Dinosaur Book 3: Will You Be My Raptor? Coming out soon!

Hello readers!

Sorry for the delays in the release of my third kidlit book "Will You Be My Raptor?". I have been juggling several writing projects (two adult novels and The Backpack Dinosaur books).

The cover has been finalized, and I am now waiting on the epub conversion, and then the book will be released officially on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and BAM.

Book trailer to follow!

A nicely paced read by R. L. Stine and one of my favorites so far in the Fear Street series. It kept me guessing the whole time - and I was genuinely surprised at the ending!

Thank you, Stine, for another great teen scream!

Meg by Steve Alten

Meg is the novel that put Steve Alten on the literary map in the late 1990's, and after reading it, I can totally understand why. After reading this book I quickly devoured (no pun intended) the second, third, and fourth book in his series. Currently ...more
