It's a fun story featuring a brother-sister duo who battle an evil maniac who uses an earthquake machine to terrorize the city.

I also recently finished an adult historical thriller set in 1860 Paris called "Let the Ghosts Speak." My agent is seeking a publisher for that novel.

I am currently working on a young adult science-fiction novel set in another star system, tentatively entitled "Search for the Astral Dragon." This project is expanding both in size and depth, and I am very excited about it.(less)

I was the only person who commented on the most recent critique group post. That must mean that the group has lost interest. I am suspending this feature for the time being.

“Too much information will make your brain choke.”
Bryan Davis, Dragons in Our Midst: The Complete Series

“Not enough info makes for a lot of dead cats."
"Dead cats?"
"You know, 'Curiosity killed the cat.' And I have enough curiosity to start a feline genocide."
"Feline genocide?"
"Yeah. If you don't explain Apollo, the cat kingdom will crumble. Cats all over the world will suddenly plop down in unmoving masses of fur, their food will dry up in smelly chunks of fish, and when people call, 'Here, kitty kitty kitty,' no cats will come running; they'll just-" Walter suddenly stopped.
