My very first original novel was for editor Olga Litowinski. I sent her a couple of chapters and she saw potential in it - but had me change absolutely everything! She was perfectly correct, and I learned a great deal about writing from working with her.

Uptime, Downtime, Simon & Schuster, 1992

Karyn and Mike are orphans who suddenly discover that they have the ability to travel in time. As they explore this gift, they meet other youngsters with the same abilities - but lose their own time in the process. Can they change history back again to the way it was meant to be?

I love the cover for this story that was painted by Ellen Thompson. So much so, in fact, that I bought it from the artist.

Discovering The Spirit of America, Frederick Thomas, 2004

One of the strangest writing jobs I've ever had was to produce two books for the fast-food chain Chick-fil-A, to be given away in their happy meals to kids. I liked the idea of books instead of toys as prizes, so I happily agreed. 

3) A Statue And Her Lamp
From the Statue of Liberty to the Empire State Building - immigrants and inventions!

4) NASA And A Trip To The Moon
From the building of the Hoover Dam to the first Moon landing to September 11th - America grows!

Outwand, Dragonhome Books, 2013

Andrea Ballard and her brother are in England following a car accident that left him paralyzed. Now strange things are loose at night, creatures that haven't existed for thousands of years - and some far, far longer than that. Reality seems to be breaking down, and they may be the last chance to prevent the complete destruction of the world...

The Saint Meets His Match, Mulholland Books, 2013

No, I didn't write this one! It's by Leslie Charteris, creator of the Saint, but I did write a special introduction to the new edition. One of my favorite literary characters, and a great influence on my own writing - and just a really fun read.
