National Turn Off TV Week

April 23 - 29 is National Trun Off TV Week. You can learn more about this efforrt by going to They also have another program called More Reading, Less TV.

So, I’m editing one of my previous posts, which talks about summer reading, to reflect National Turn Off TV Week.

This week, let 'em READ a movie.

Several young readers have reported that reading one of my action-adventures & mysteries is like being in an exciting or scary movie. This comes from my extensive background of dramatic film and video production. My books are first targeted for boys ages 8 - 13. But girls like the books also.

Books are ranked by Accelerated Reader. They can be ordered from Baker & Taylor, and are available on

NEWSPAPER CAPER, TERROR AT WOLF LAKE, NORTH WOODS POACHERS, MOUNTAIN CABIN MYSTERY, BIG RIG RUSTLERS, SECRET OF ABBOTT'S CAVE & LEGEND OF THE WHITE WOLF, are compared by readers and reviewers to Tom Sawyer, The Hardy Boys, Huck Finn, Nancy Drew, Tom Swift, Scooby-Doo, Lemony Snicket, and adventure author Jack London.

So this week, turn off the TV, turn off the computer, and let 'em READ a movie
