Overview

Big Bill and Squirt are back and bound for trouble. Egghead, the bald, cranky old landlord who reigns supreme over his building has threatened Bill's family with eviction more than once. The family constantly lives on the edge, at Egghead’s whim. Egghead kills neighborhood cats and hates humans--especially kids, notably Bill. Taunting Egghead has become a past time, a source for entertainment for Bill, but a thorn in the old man's side. With his friend Squirt, they scheme to build a tree house in the willow to escape the summer heat; however, the tree shades Egghead’s favorite picnic table. The ambitious project requires smarts, speed, and stealth. If they drive Egghead to distraction he may even forget to lock his dirt-floor garage, where he does plenty of mysterious midnight digging. The neighbors believe a lot of secrets lie under the dirt and maybe more than just missing neighborhood pets. A dangerous cat and mouse game ensues with the boys forgetting that the old cat still has claws.

Meet the Author

Most mysteries and suspense novels have to do with cops, lawyers, and PIs. My protagonist is a firefighter and is the only firefighter pulp fiction in Canada. True grit and reality are my writing tenets.My juvenile/middle grade/chapter books have no magic wands, wise talking creatures, vampires, or parallel worlds. My stories are about unassuming boys who get in trouble and must prove themselves and show the world they have hearts of lions. There's fighting, conflict, loyalty, bullies, integrity, and courage. I've read samples to Grade 4 and 5 students and garnered excellent reviews.I was born in Welland, Ontario, a blue-collar town in the Niagara Peninsula. Backpacked the world and lived in Australia. I've never been fired from a job: paperboy, grocery clerk, sales rep, iron worker, framer, painter, mink ranch hand, assembly line rubber factory, concrete pouring, cherry picker, framer, freelance astronaut (no offers), boilermaker apprentice, electrician, various sales jobs, delivery driver, father, coach, and career firefighter and officer for 32 years. I've also played drums in the Black Gold Big Band for 8 years.I retired as fire captain with Edmonton Fire Rescue, a large metro fire service. I live in Beaumont, AB. with Gloria, whom I met on a freighter/passenger ship from Jakarta to Singapore. My writing has garnered several awards in a few genres. I travel widely, do a bit of fishing and boating, drink demon rum, manage a writers group, do occasional renos, repair everything of mine that's wearing down or breaking, and sit on my butt outside in the good weather reading a decent book. Check out my website for some excellent short stories.

    Out on a Limb is a great book for all ages! This was a fun fille

    Out on a Limb is a great book for all ages! This was a fun filled story about a crazy old man named Egghead. The day to day life and storied betrayed of Egghead are one to laugh about. Of course no great story is truly great with out a arch nemis of the old man adnd the would be some wacky kids, especially Bill. Bill and Egghead aren't the best of friends and the trouble they cause each other are very funny. Not only is this a great book but it is a great deal, only .99 cents!
