Some cool news to share in that the Off the Hook hardback will be displayed at the Foreword exhibit at the Bologna Children's Book Fair in Italy which takes place next week April 3rd to 6th.  

Speaking of Italy, here's a fun fact for you -- I was actually born in Vicenza Italy when my dad was stationed over there.  I was only there a few months and haven't ever had a chance to visit so it's pretty cool my first book and first book fair will be in that country.

Anyhow, if you happen to be at the book fair be sure to check out Off the Hook at the Foreword exhibit.  If not, the Foreword folks are sending me some pics which I'll post as soon as I get them!

The Off the Hook Screenplay made a little noise at the Nashville Film Festival as it finished as a Semifinalist in their screenplay competition!

 The good news just keeps on rollin' in this week -- the latest being that the Los Angeles Book Festival has named Off The Hook as an "Honorable Mention" in their Children's Book category!

Some stiff competition in there and I'm honored to be a part of this group!

I'm extremely excited to announce that the Off The Hook book is a 2016 Foreword INDIES Finalist in the Picture Books, Early Reader category! 

This is the first contest the book is entered in that has made their announcements and I'm cannot express how honored I am to make the Finalist cut!

Thanks Foreword!

I'm excited to announce that the The 'Off the Hook' screenplay has made the cut into the semifinals in the Screencraft Family-Friendly Contest!  

A previous version of this screenplay advanced to the semifinals of this contest last year so let's see if some revisions are enough to push it into the finals!

I should be hearing back on the first batch of book contests in the next week or two so stay tuned!
