Hi Lo Reading Level Books for Boys
When I began writing action-adventures and mysteries for kids, I was particularly interested in making sure that my books would reach boys…especially reluctant readers.
There is a category in literature called Hi Lo Reading Level. My books have been identified as fitting the description of Hi Lo.
A well respected site, About.com, has written about two of my books, in an effort to alert parents who have sons with various reading difficulties. Those pages are located at:
Mountain Cabin Mystery
North Woods Poachers
In addition to these two books, I also have published Secret of Abbott’s Cave, Big Rig Rustlers, and Legend of the White Wolf.
Then, in September, Darby Creek Publishing released a sports anthology, Lay Ups and Long Shots. My short story, Big Foot, is included in this book and shares the pages with children's authors Joseph Bruchac, Terry Trueman, David Lubar, Dorian Cirrone, CS Perryess, Jamie McEwan, and Peggy Duffy.
And, Lay ups and Long Shots is a Junior Library Guild selection, so you are likely to find it in your local library. Lay Ups and Long Shots can be found on Amazon.com. or in bookstores like Barnes and Noble, Borders, and others.
