Dear Librarian:

Last year I was so proud when my first teen book, CHESS RUMBLE, was named a 2008 Notable Book by ALA and a Young Adult Choice by IRA. Now my second book, SURF MULES, is out as I continue my journey to get teens, particularly boys, to read.

SURF MULES is a thriller about two young surfers on the verge of graduating when they become embroiled in a world of disorganized crime. An epic road journey into the heart of darkness, SURF MULES looks at the choices we make in the struggle to leave adolescence behind and the price we pay in the name of friendship and loyalty.

I am giving away five signed copies of SURF MULES, picked from random entries. To enter, write me at or visit!

Thanks for all your support. I really couldn't do it without you!

"Intense, funny and exciting...readers will be hooked on this fast-paced, interesting adventure. It is a definite buy." -School Library Journal

"The tortured but loving friendship between Logan and Z-boy proves poignant and heartbreaking. Logan's agonized wrestling with morally ambiguous choices and his flawed yet appealing family and friends should find a wide audience." - Publisher's Weekly
