It's here!! My book is now available on Amazon, as an e-book!
What the story is about, in one sentence:
When nature-loving Emilio and athletic Hans get lost in the forest during a fifth grade field trip, they have no choice but to put their differences aside to survive the harsh wilderness.
This is my first novel, intended for middle grade children (eight to twelve years old). I enjoyed writing it (and revising it over and over again), and I learned so much in the process, but now it's time to let go and release it to the world! *deep breath* I feel like I'm holding out my baby for the world to see, like in The Lion King.
I would like to offer a free copy to one of my blog readers! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. The winner will be announced on Monday. Good luck!
And now a little more about the book, and about me.
Emilio would rather eat a slimy worm than miss the fifth grade field trip. Nemesis Mountain must be full of rare leaf specimens and bugs for his collection. Besides, he needs a break from the playground and Hans’s nonstop teasing. His excitement is squashed when he gets lost in the woods with his worst enemy.
Alone in the forest, the two boys battle to survive the harsh wilderness, facing challenges that will change their lives forever.
About the Author
I am originally from Canada but now reside in New Jersey. I have a degree in computer programming, but my life took an unexpected turn and I ended up writing stories and articles instead of computer programs. Now I use every spare minute to write children’s novels and to help other writers succeed.
My three children have been the inspiration behind many of my short stories, over forty in total. My flash fiction story, Paradoxical Neighbor, has been published by Nelson Education in a book for 10th graders, Nelson Literacy 10.
I have a certificate in copyediting, I moderate a critique group for children's writers, and I am the editor at UK Children's Publishing.
