Book Description

Star athlete Josh and computer prodigy Madison are recruited by the mysterious Mr. Crux to attend a special summer camp. The two elementary school kids then begin the adventure of a lifetime. They discover that the Small World Global Protection Agency is a network of talented and skilled children in countries all over the world. Their mission is to help other kids and save the day when adults can’t.
In Case File: 001-A, New Kids on the Rock, Josh and Madison start their adventure with the Global Protection Agency. Their first mission takes them to Australia to help teen pop singer Ja-Naya and discover what her evil manager, Feeble Bix is up to. Their counterparts, Mick and Kim, are ready for action as they head across the Outback.
The Small World Global Protection Agency is an adventure serial aimed at third through fifth grade readers. Each volume will take Josh and Madison to a different country. The stories will be entertaining, sometimes suspenseful, sometimes humorous. Each story will introduce facts about other countries and cultures, educating the reader through the eyes of children their own age while having fun.
Mark currently resides in Florida with his family. He strives to follow in the footsteps of his namesake, Mark Twain.
His father was a newspaper writer and editor for both the Kansas City Star and Kansan. Mark received his Bachelor’s Degree in Film from the University of Kansas. He has been influenced by great stories from C.S. Lewis, and Tolkien and Star Wars.
Mark is the author of The Empyrical Tales. Book I: The Fourth Queen and Book II: The Lost Queen are available now. Book III: The Secret Queen is coming Spring 2012. Mark is also the creator of the spiritual eBook series “Mark Miller’s One”. The first story, “Meant To Be”, tells how he met his wife.
Mark believes being a father of four makes him uniquely qualified to write his stories. He also has spent time in the classroom with third, fourth and fifth graders.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small Wonder November 12, 2011
By Rondo K
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm new to Mark Miller and I'm happy to say this neat, little e-book has taken me by surprise. The young heroes, Madison and Josh, are warm, familiar and recognisable to us all, and Mark puts them in the exciting, high-tech (even sci-fi!) world of the Small World Global Protection Agency.

I find it appealing (as a teacher) that Mark has also managed to make the story educational, as well as creating situations and issues that young people will know all about. Madison and Josh have talents, worries and problems like us all, but manage to keep on track with a positive outlook.

The book is written in a friendly, easy-going style, and this volume (Case File: 001-A) provides an introduction to the many colourful charaters and sets us up nicely for the next part. In a nutshell, Mark has created a bite-sized, tasty little morsel of a story, which makes you want more of the meal. There will be lots more case files on the way I hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great homeschooling / Teacher Resource to teach Geography December 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's about time someone wrote a story for children in grades 3-5 about geography. Seeing a country on the globe tell kids nothing about the country, but Mark Miller mixes in culture and "takes" the kids to diffferent countries in this continuing series, just the right length too. As a former teacher and homeschool mom, I highly recommend this new series. Great resource for teachers and homeschoolers and you can't beat the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Beginning, Disappointing Ending March 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Two exceptional kids are recruited for a special mission: Madison, a computer whiz, and Joshua, a star athlete. When Madison sees two men in suits at her school library, she thinks they are going to arrest her for hacking into the school computer network. A mad dash ensues as she tries to escape, but is eventually caught by the Small World Protection Agency recruiters. When recruiters go after Josh, he wields his baseball bat to fend them off, but there are too many of them and he, too, is caught. Once recruited, the two heroes begin special training at a very high-tech base. What a great beginning!

Now it is time for the pair to begin their first mission. What the heck? The book is only just getting started and it ends. I understand that this is the beginning of a series, but what a disappointment. When I buy a book, I hope to get a beginning, a climax, and a conclusion, even if there are enough unresolved issues to lead to book two. It is very well-written, but in my humble opinion just too short to market it as a "book".

More About the Author

A Kansas Native, Mark currently resides in Florida with his wife and four children. Since moving to Florida, he has pursued a lifelong aspiration of becoming a published author. He believes he has always been a writer and strived to follow in the footsteps of his namesake, Mark Twain.

His education started early as his father was a newspaper writer, editor and photographer for both the Kansas City Star and Kansan. Formal development started in high school writing classes at Sumner Academy where he completed the International Baccalaureate program. Additional teaching came from both Kansas City Kansas Community College and the University of Kansas. It was at KU where he received his Bachelor's Degree in Film. Informally, he was educated by the writings of C.S. Lewis, Lloyd Alexander and as he matured, Tolkien. His interest in fantasy did not end on the page as some of his favorite movies include The Dark Crystal, Excalibur, and Star Wars.

Professional experience dates back to the 1990's. Mark has co-written four screenplays, two of which were produced as ultra-low budget direct-to-DVD features by East of Hollywood Productions. Through his relationship with East of Hollywood, Mark also became co-creator of an educational and entertaining children's program. That show used the talents of a local radio personality and a group of child actors to update classic fairytales and fables. Each of the episodes brought a twist to the familiar stories and conveyed a positive message.

On his own, Mark has completed five other novels, a screenplay, three digital short story series and several other short stories. The first three books of his Empyrical Tales have been published by Comfort Publishing, LLC out of North Carolina. Book I: The Fourth Queen, Book II: The Lost Queen and Book III: The Secret Queen are available in print and eBook. Trestle Press published his adaptation of the Christian movie Daniel's Lot, filmed in and around Mount Dora. With Trestle, Mark also heads a spiritual, introspective series called Mark Miller's One and a children's eBook series about to elementary school students that become international spies called Small World Global Protection Agency. This series teaches culture and geography in an exciting way. Mark has another all-ages, faith-based fantasy series that he is co-writing with his nine year old daughter. It is called Sons of the King and is available only on eBook. In addition to his own writing, Mark is currently lending his talents to a faith-based movie production company Lazarus Films.

He believes being a father of four makes him uniquely qualified to write The Empyrical Tales, an eight story series that comes from our collected myths and fairytales. He hopes his writing sends a positive message with strong role models and a beneficial moral element. And every day is an adventure with his children as they continue to teach him as well. His two young daughters unknowingly provided the models that helped create the main character sisters in The Fourth Queen. Many of their phrases and behaviors are shared with their fictional counterparts.
