Dear Librarian:

You begin, "Great explorers like Henry Hudson. . . " - Already, the kids are snoozing! Why not introduce them to the man through a book that will make his history come alive? With pranks on board ship, a woman sent to spy for England, swordfights and tooth pulling, kids will not soon forget the explorer who was mutinied against on his last voyage. To top it off, this is the 400th anniversary of his doomed sailing trip. So why not celebrate with the purchase of QUEST, a Maine Student Book Award nominee and a New York Statewide Summer Reading Program Book? Check out the trailer at

I love to do school and library visits. You can check out my schedule at Need a fun quiz on explorers?

And if you have an up and coming writer in your midst, let them know about my blog:

I will be giving away three signed copies of my book THE STORY OF THE SAMSON or HEARTS OF IRON to any librarian who sends me a picture of my book QUEST being displayed at their library. Send your pictures to me at and put KIDSBUZZ in the subject line.

And may you continue to quest for the best in yourself!
