The Amazing Tales of Max and Liz® is a two-book prequel series that begins the adventures of brave Scotty dog Max and brilliant French cat Liz through the stories of Noah's Ark and Joseph. Book One: The Ark, the Reed, and the Fire Cloud (2009 Reader's Favorite Gold Award for Children's Chapter Books) is in pre-production for an animated series and feature film adaptation, DVD school curriculum and VBS program development. Book Two: The Dreamer, the Schemer, and the Robe (2010 Reader's Favorite Gold Award for Children's Chapter Books) brings Max, Liz, and friends to work behind the scenes in the life of Joseph in the land of Egypt. The Epic Order of the Seven® series picks up where the Max and Liz series left off. Book One: The Prophet, the Shepherd, and the Star (2011 Reader's Favorite Gold Award for Christian Historical Fiction) gives Max, Liz, and the gang their most important mission yet: preparing for the birth of the promised Messiah. Their seven-hundred-year mission takes them to the lives of Isaiah, Daniel, and those in the Christmas story. Book Two: The Roman, the Twelve, and the King (2012 Readers Favorite Five Star and Bronze Awards for Christian Historical Fiction) unfolds the childhood, ministry and passion of Jesus Christ with a twist - his story is told within the story of George F. Handel composing Messiah. Six more books remain in the series: The Wind, the Road, and the Way (2014), The Fire, the Revelation, and the Fall (2015), The Voice, the Revolution, and the Marquis (2016), The Thunder, the Sword, and the Jewel (2017) and a two part book: The Professor, the War, and the Muse (2019).
