Paul Aertker (ETT Kerr) is an award-winning children's book writer, teacher, and frequent speaker at elementary and middle schools. He began his teaching career in West Africa with the Peace Corps where he helped establish the town's first public library.
His first series, Crime Travelers, consistently ranks in the top spot in multiple categories. The series has been optioned for TV and Film. His newest book, Posthumous, won the Indie Book of the Year Bronze medal and won the SCBWI Spark Honor award for excellence in children's publishing. He and his wife live in Colorado and travel with their two children whenever possible. More information at paulaertker.com
As a traveler and multilingual teacher, Aertker has clocked nearly half his life outside the US. When he was a teenager, he slept on the streets of London to watch a royal wedding. He took the CIA exam because he wanted to be a spy for the good guys (and not the "Good Company").
Ages 10 and up will love this series' campy flavor. Parents, teachers, and librarians will appreciate the worldwide geography and appropriate language. A reluctant reader's dream. For boys, girls, (and adults who may act like children :).
