It’s Here! The Strange New Dog is available in paperback

I’m excited and also a bit disbelieving that we made it, but my latest book, The Strange New Dog: An Allen Family Mystery, is officially available in paperback from Amazon!

The Strange New Dog is a chapter book for kids age 7-10, featuring a lively family, their collection of pets and— believe it or not— a strange new dog. If you’re shopping for any fans of The Boxcar Children, Encyclopedia Brown, or the Bunnicula books, they just might enjoy this one.

Interview on The Storied Outdoors

Today you can listen to an interview I did on The Storied Outdoors, a podcast “Somewhere between Lewis & Tolkien and Lewis & Clark.”

This is the podcast’s inaugural season, and it’s quickly become one of my favorites. We talked about adventure, A Year in the Big Old GardenStory Warren, my wife Julie’s gardens, and finding clarity in the outdoors. It was a good time!

You can find a link to the episode on your podcast platform of choice HERE.

Coming Soon – The Strange New Dog chapter book mystery

I am excited to say that next month Havenwood Press will release my next book, The Strange New Dog: An Allen Family Mystery

The Strange New Dog is a chapter book for kids age 7-10, featuring a lively family, their collection of pets and— believe it or not— a strange new dog. Here’s the copy from the back cover:

The Allen family loves their many pets, and they’re excited to adopt just one more—Henry, the bull-terrier. But why are dangerous men after him? He’s not telling, and the other pets must find out before someone in the family gets hurt:

  • Why is Henry angry about being adopted?
  • Can a dachshund actually concentrate for more than two minutes?
  • What do Henry’s stalkers really want?
  • Can a cat’s natural stubbornness foil a dastardly scheme of kidnapping and robbery?

More details are coming soon!
