"This book (this entire series!) will probably hold the attention of your young readers. And if it gets them reading, it's money well spent."
"I'm kinda a reluctant reader, but when I got cracking on this book right when I finished it I got the next one."
"My seven year old son read this book his own. He liked it so much he read it 3 times before I bought him parts 2 and 3."
"My two sons ages 12 and 8 love this book and I am being begged to finish getting the rest of them."
"From one kid to another, this book is TOTALLY amazing. The characters are interesting and the action is thrilling! The spies have super cool gadgets. I could barely put it down!!"
"This book is very exciting! I read this book as my 8 year old boy's bedtime story and he just couldn't get enough of it...he loved it and talked about it through out the day."
"My 11-year-old grandson loved this series. He's a good reader; he's just a picky reader. This series hit the spot and had him reading every day!"
"This was an awesome book. I would read it again and again and again...I love it so much sometimes I loved it better than ice cream and cake and cupcakes."
"Great book for kids and adults."
From the Author
What the stories were missing, in my mind, were growth and consequence.
While Johnny B. Fast is a series surrounded by wondrous gadgets and larger than life characters, at its core there is an undercurrent of thematic issues important and prevalent in our daily lives: trust, courage, responsibility, overcoming adversity, doing the right thing.
The characters aren't always brave, they don't always know what to do. They fail, a lot, and get knocked down. They aren't perfect cookie cutter heroes going off on meaningless by-the-numbers adventures.
There is growth, and there are consequences to their actions. It's a big story, with a very far reaching vision. Parts 1-3 add up to just over 110,000 words, and we haven't even finished getting out of the first act of the adventure. Seeds are planted throughout, and weeds, that fester and grow as the story progresses.
I wish I could tell you all right now where the story is going. It's a bigger adventure than I originally intended. Suffice it to say that characters die, others go bad, and some go good. Some are able to redeem themselves, and others stumble under the burden of betraying past responsibilities.
Johnny and Nancy may or may not end up together, but they do grow, and they do face the consequences of their adventure.
These are the types of stories I feel really matter.
Thank you for reading.
