Jeff Kinney loved my new book, TIME TRAVEL INN!

Hey, a thousand apologies. I was so busy working on Time Travel Inn for Choose Your Own Adventure, I didn't update my own blog. Anyway, I can tell you that Jeff Kinney (author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid) described my story as having "mind-bending adventure and heart-stopping thrills!"

Time Travel Inn is available at IndieboundPowell’s BooksAmazonBarnes & NobleChoose Your Own Adventure, or your local bookstore or library!

Please read my "amusing" article

Here's the link. Oh, and my friend, Aaron, helped with this piece. But I wrote all the good parts. ;)

I Won a Major Award!

No big deal, but I was just awarded WRITING'S GREATEST PRIZE! No, not the Nobel Prize in Literature. Even better—I won the ”Vile Pun” category in the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest.

As background, the BLFC challenges writers to compose the first sentence for the worst imaginable novel. It has various genre categories (Adventure, Romance, Science Fiction, etc.), and there's also one for "Vile Puns."

As nothing is more unfunny than explaining a joke, here goes: A Peer is a member of the British aristocracy, and telling someone to "take a long walk off a short pier" is a way of telling someone to get lost.

So anyway, you can imagine how proud I am! And if you read any of the award-winning entries and think, "I could write worse than THAT," enter this contest next year. :)

Ooh, my new books are here!

Not to overplay it, but getting my new SPACE and ROBOT books in the mail just cured my baldness and made a warm apple pie appear in the kitchen. 🧙‍♂️
The Little Leonardo's Makerlab books are for young readers (4-8) who are ready for fun science activities. These two books officially arrive in April, but can be preordered now! 🚀
And don’t forget your local bookstore or library!
