I am so excited to finally announce the upcoming release of my newest book, MICKEY MALLOY, WONDER BOY! This illustrated chapter book for ages 6-10 is about Mickey, an average kid who loves comic books and superheroes. Then one day a mysterious package is delivered with his name on it. Inside,  he finds a strange, metal contraption. And when Mickey pushes the thing's button, he gets ZZZZAAAAPPPED! Suddenly, he isn't average anymore. He's magnetic! But his new power gets him into more trouble than he could ever imagine.

I wrote Mickey Malloy about a decade ago when my oldest son (who is now 20) was a kid. My children have always gotten a kick out of the story, begging me to read it to them again and again. This year, when my youngest son turned ten, I realized that soon he'd be too old to enjoy Mickey's story. So I decided this would be the year I'd finally get it published. I'm happy to say that Jarett got the first copy for Christmas.

But MICKEY MALLOY, WONDER BOY! isn't just for my son. Come March 2018, it will be available for kids everywhere!

For now, I wanted to give you a sneak peek at what is to come. Illustrated by the amazingly talented Matt Easterbrook, I present to you...

So, what do you think? I'd love to hear your reactions to the cover at in the comments below. And let me know who, in your life, would love to read Mickey's story.
