About the Author
I am currently working hard to become an author, my 4th career. I owned and operated a computer networking company for 25 years. I was a school teacher and counselor with 10 years of experience in the public schools. I owned and operated a convenience store for 10 years. I am a proud husband, father and grandfather. I am someone who cares about the people around me, who wants to improve the society we all live in, who hopes on a daily basis to leave the planet a little better than it was the previous day and who is cognizant that the impact I have on the world is minimal. Tilting at windmills is a part of my character as is a deep love for all those who need to be loved. In my own mind I am a complex, multi-layered, unique character in the kaleidoscoping drama of life.

Children and young adolescents will love the mystery and humor in each of these stories. And they will learn something as they read through this book. If you have a good sense of humor, you won't be able to help yourself - you'll just laugh out loud reading Bentrim's "Hardy Belch and Tiny Return."
This is a book for the young readers book shelf, without a doubt. It is a book that will most certainly have dog eared pages!
Annie Frame (Author of Imprint and TQR)
The set up: Twelve-year-old Hardy Belch has a dog. But not just *any* dog. His pet is telepathic and some of the funniest bits are the talk-thoughts that go between owner and canine as they solve mysteries.
The book is divided into short vignettes that would be easy for a reluctant reader to get into. The illustrations are excellent and really work with the story.
The chapters breeze by, and, not wanting to spoil, but...there will be a dinosaur. (he's on the cover, duh). And buried treasure. And more treasure.
This book is full of boy appeal.
The book is comprised of four self contained tales. The first explores Tiny's origins and recalls his heroic guard dog Mother's work in a nuclear power plant. The second takes a fanciful trip through time to encounter a lonely Triceratops. The third and fourth stories weave local historical figures into a pair of treasure hunting adventures.
