New books just in time for the return of school author visits!

It has been a long 16 months since COVID-19 shut down much of the world. Although in-person author visits came to a halt, I have stayed busy with my writing. I have four new sports biographies coming out via Capstone Press and Sports Illustrated Kids on August 1.




I also have four new titles being released in January 2022. These include three more sports biographies as well as an exciting story detailing the famous Escape from Alcatraz. This is my second Alcatraz book. My first, published back in 2016, was an interactive fiction story. This time I revisit the escape and ponder whether or not the men survived the icy waters of San Francisco Bay and made it to freedom.



We're not done yet. I also spent part of the pandemic pitching new projects. That led to titles coming in the fall of 2022 with two new publishers including two books for younger readers as well as two topical non-fiction books on cryptocurrency and vaccines. More on those in a future post.


Finally, I recently signed a contract to write three more sports biographies on three of the most famous athletes in sports today (NFL, MLB, and WNBA players). More details in a future post, but they will be released in the fall of 2022.


All of this leads me to the best part of my job -- the school author visits! I cannot wait to return to in-person school visits. I miss the students, their enthusiasm, their awesome questions and their passion for reading and writing. I am currently booking visits for the 2021-22 school year and I can't wait to get back on the road and into schools.
