Do you like to:

Then you'll love my upcoming Middle Grade book, How to Kill a Giant:

He lost his courage. Will meeting a real superhero help him find it?

Thirteen-year-old Hugo is miserable. His move to a small town in Pennsylvania has brought him nothing but trouble. Rejected by his new classmates and an easy target for the school bullies, Hugo withdraws into himself. It’s going to be a long summer.

But fate smiles his way when he meets Julia and Stefan, who are staying with their grandparents. They are just as unhappy as he is, and the three quickly bond over their mutual misery.

After finding a mysterious old Bible, the teens get magically pulled into ancient Israel, where they meet David, a young shepherd who suspects they’re spies. He intends to guard them and find out who they are. Mix-ups and adventures follow, forcing Hugo to face his greatest fear – that he’s a coward.

As Hugo and his friends navigate the dangers of this terrifying world, he must decide if he can trust his shepherd guardian enough to survive.

How to Kill a Giant will be published in 2023 by Elk Lake Publishing Inc. You can sign up below to be notified when that happens (which I’m sure you’re just itching to do 😉).

How to Kill a Giant is the first book in the How to Be a Hero trilogy.
