The Castle Sisters and the Impossible Rescue - Now Available

As promised, the new book is now available. I'm rolling it out everywhere this week. Right now it's up at Amazon Kindle and Smashwords. I'll update with Nook and iBookstore Links as they become available.

This book, and subsequently the series I'm launching out of it, already holds a special place with me. You see, I really do have two nieces named Faith and Summer. They both love to read and are constantly enamored with the fact that their Uncle is an author. Unfortunately, aside from Rupert & Me, I haven't written anything that's really suitable for a 9 year old and a 6 year old. And, really, Rupert's on the edge of suitability, if I'm being honest here.

So back in February my wife and I started brainstorming a new series that I would specifically write for my nieces. It was originally intended to be just a birthday gift for later in the year, but as I started working on it, I realized that this was going to be too much fun. I couldn't possibly wait to share this story with my nieces. And I didn't. I told them this past Sunday. To say they thought it was pretty awesome, would be to put it mildly.

I tried really hard to make this an All-Ages book. Yes, it's written for kids, but I want adults to enjoy reading it, too. I mean, there's nothing worse than reading a boring book to your child, right?

When my nieces asked me to describe the book to them, I said it was kind of like a comic book, but without the pictures. Their eyes lit up at that description and I think it's a pretty apt one. There's plenty of adventure, thrills and excitement in this book.

I really enjoyed writing this book and I hope you guys enjoy reading it.


Faith and Summer Castle are the ultimate crime fighting duo. 

And they're not even old enough to drive. 
Faith has the super smarts and Summer brings the super brawn. 

When their Uncle gets kidnapped by the evil Agent Dark the Castle Sisters find themselves facing their greatest challenge yet.

The forces of darkness are gathering and the battle between good and evil has reached a pivotal turning point. Agent Dark has stolen a secret formula that could give him the ultimate control. With the sisters' Uncle out of the way, no one stands between Agent Dark and the end of everything.

Not only does the fate of the world now hang in the balance, but the sisters must pull off what will almost certainly be an impossible rescue.
