Grant Goodman (grant_goodman) Hi, everyone!

I'm Grant Goodman: former martial arts instructor, current English teacher, and forever fan of cartoons.

For the past few years, I've been writing the Agent Darcy & Ninja Steve book series for readers 8-12. This summer, I'm working on wrapping up the fourth novel in the series.

The first book, Tiger Trouble, is a martial-arts adventure that has spy gear, spin-kicks, and secret missions. Here's the back cover summary:

Thirteen-year-old Agent Darcy is one of the top students at the Bureau of Sneakery, where there are three rules every agent must follow: never make friends with an outsider, never speak of the Bureau, and never reveal your real name. Lately, Darcy has hit a rough patch: her rival, Agent Serena, keeps outdoing her. If things keep going this way, Darcy is convinced that no one will ever assign her a real mission.

Ninja Steve’s city, Ninjastoria, is the home of sword fights, throwing stars, and Tae Kwon Donuts. Unlike his genius older sister, twelve year-old Steve isn’t the best ninja student. He’d rather be swinging a sword instead of taking notes in class. Steve, however, is about to learn that being a true ninja means far more than being able to use a sword.

When Darcy is sent to Ninjastoria as an exchange student, it will turn both of their lives upside-down and raise all kinds of questions:

What do the mecha-moles want? Who is the man in the gray mask? What do ninjas eat for lunch? And why are there tiger stripes all over the cover of this book?

Time to read and find out!

Carol Dobson | 22 comments Hi Grant. An interesting series of books. I have a 12-year-old grandson who is French-speaking but can read in English. I will buy one of your books for him and see how he gets on. Best of luck with the latest book
