Look what arrived today! As an author, one of the greatest joys is seeing your book in print for the first time. Considering that I’ve been working on this book since the summer of 2014, this moment is especially sweet.
Allow me to introduce you to Rookie of the Year, the first book in the High Flyers series of chapter books for children ages 7-10. Here’s the description:
Rocket’s got speed. He’s got talent. He’s even got two blue racing stripes on his wings. But there’s one thing standing between this rookie racing pigeon and his dream of scoring a spot on the High Flyers racing team: ground school.
Determined to fast-track his way onto the team, Rocket crashes a race to prove that he belongs flying at the front of the flock, not sitting in the back of a classroom. But when danger strikes, he makes rookie mistakes that cost him the race and push his dreams even farther from reach. With the help of an unlikely friend, a forgotten legend, and lessons from his long-lost racing champion father, Rocket learns that racing takes more than speed and he discovers what it really means to be a winner.
