Book Description

Serbin Reek was born looking evil — but he was anything but. After he is wrongly expelled from his high school, Serbin's step parents send him to their alma mater, SFE, a secret institution deep in the woods of Wyoming. There he discovers that evil can be taught, studied, and graded on a curve.
An unputdownable, hilarious novel for adolescents of all ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story, terrible proofreading job May 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This was an entertaining story told with humor and insight. However, the print edition could have benefited from far more thorough proofreading and attention to text flow (e.g., a contraction would break in the middle of the word)--one of the dangers of self-publishing. Perhaps this has been corrected in the Kindle edition. While this was distracting for me at times, the story was still enjoyable and I would welcome further tales of Serbin and the SFE.

4.0 out of 5 stars Creative thinking on the dark side February 19, 2013

Inventive cast of characters and events. Playful creative writing. I would like more background on how the main character was raised by both step parents...and closure on the Ferret

2.0 out of 5 stars Synopsis was good, but story fell way short December 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A school where the bad are taught evil ways. A good boy who looked the part but had a heart of - well not gold - but at least copper. We have Serbin who is a normal kid in an evil world. He just wants to be a normal kid, but his evil parents have plans for him. They sabotage him and get a place secured for him in SFE (School for Evil). In this school, one can learn the fine art of murder, sabotage, manipulation, and believe it or not... band. Because all of the best villains have theme music and, apparently, Motley Crue is an evil band...

I thought this book sounded great from the synopsis, and the look inside feature hooked me on buying the book. But what I got when I dug in further disappointed me. There were idiosyncrasies in the book that, quite frankly, annoyed me. In the beginning, I understand the need for the author to stress the boy wore all black. But for starters, it was done way to often, and then I wasn't really sure why he felt the need to start putting the word black in parenthesis... like it was some sort of interjection or something. For instance, the author would say something like, "He put on his (black) coat and his (black) sneakers, then found his (black) jacket."

There are three other main issues that I had with the book.

The was the author really didn't seem to know who he was writing this book for. The opening paragraph made it come across as a middle grade book - which is great for me, I love quirky MG books. The narrator talked to the audience reminiscent of Lemony Snicket, sort of the, "Now boys and girls" vibe. We have sentences like, "You're a jerk. I can't believe I'm stupid friends with you again." Other kinda quirky, middle grade humor would be where the narrator said someone was vacuuming their clothes every night.

More About the Author

I spent most of my life not believing I had the right to consider myself an artist in any way. But then I started drawing about eight years ago and it changed my life. It led me to travel, to meet people, to get books published, but most of all it transformed the way I see the world around me and how I experience every day.

I believe that everyone has the same opportunity. Not to become a Professional Artist but to make art into a regular part of your everyday life. It doesn't matter what your elementary school art teacher said, or your parents, or your boss. You have it in you to draw, to play an instrument, to write poetry, whatever you choose. You can and should express your self. Regardless of what you fear anyone else may thinks of the results, you can become a creative person and achieve a new view of the life you lead.

I often wonder what the world would be like if every adult was as creative and free as we all were as kids. I think it would be calmer, lovelier, more peaceful place. And I'd like to do something about it.

Several years ago, I started writing about my experience of creativity and sharing it on my website, dannygregory.com. Within a few months, the Everyday Matters group was formed and now over a thousand people get together regularly to encourage each other in drawing and painting and making beautiful things. They chat on the Internet and they get together in cities and towns around the world to collaborate and share.

My book, The Creative License, was written to help the sorts of people I met in our group. Some are students, some were artists and designers. But most were just people like me who had suddenly decided, when they were well into adulthood, that they wanted to return to making creativity a regular part of their lives. Most of them don't want to make a living painting or have their drawings hung in galleries and museums. They just want to have the pleasure and satisfaction of creating things.

If you would like to incorporate more creativity into your life, check out my new book, visit my site and drop me a line. I'd love to be inspired by you.


Meanwhile, here's some more of my story:


I was born in London, which we left when I was three or four. We moved briefly to Pittsburgh, Pa. then to Canberra, Australia. When I was nine, I went to live with my grandparents in Lahore, Pakistan. Next we went to a kibbutz in Israel then moved to a small town called Kfar Saba. As the Yom Kippur War broke out, we relocated to Brooklyn where I went to a Quaker high school. I was editor of the school paper and organized a Marxist study circle. I graduated from Princeton University, summa cum laude, with a degree in Politics. It was my 21st school.

When I was eleven, I began my first job - assisting the vet at the local slaughterhouse. I've worked in a record store, in one of New York's finest restaurants, and my congressman's office. I was a White House intern (Jimmy Carter lusted for me only in his heart) and a McDonalds' fry cook. I have also worked in a half dozen advertising agencies, and illustrated books, newspapers, and magazines. I am currently Executive Creative Director of a NY ad agency and Contributing Illustrator to The Morning News.

I live in Greenwich Village with myson, Jack Tea, and our miniature longhaired dachshunds, Joe and Tim. If you are in the area, come draw with me and my group.
