Editorial Reviews

GoodReads Author Review - Edward Hemingway
Move over Agatha Christie!
This Virginia Mars for the tween-set is funny, smart, and full of preternatural wisdom. A thirteen year old gumshoe with mad crazy perception skills, Shirley Link sets out to solve the mystery of a missing school safe while at the same time juggling jealous best friends, boys, and homework. She does this with aplomb and the occasional, hilarious zinger.

Meet the Author

I was one of the first writers to jump into the blogging scene, as Joystiq's first Senior Editor. My team and I led the blog's meteoric rise to the top of the blogosphere, writing headlines like "Pac-Man Hat defies any fashion sense - buy one now!" Good times.

But I wasn't satisfied with just writing about games, so I made some. After producing titles for Sony and ESPN I moved on to AOL's Games.com where my team's online games (IceBreakers, Penguin Pirates and Book of Treasures) have been played by over ten million people.

Now? Now I'm all about Shirley. The Shirley Link series grew from my need for a teen hero who knows what she's doing. There's no stumbling across victory with Shirley. She plans eight moves ahead to ensure victory. I could write her forever, and plan to. But that doesn't mean I don't have other worlds ready to spring!

In fact, I can't wait to roll out my next series, The Camelot Kids.

The Camelot Kids is a fantasy adventure set in 2012. Merlin travels the world to recruit 150 descendants of the Knights of the Round Table -- every last one of them teenagers. He needs their help to save the hidden kingdom of New Camelot. Sure, the greatest wizard to ever live may be prepared for the random rogue wizard, or a hive of hungry dragons, but is Merlin ready for The Camelot Kids?

I live in Massachusetts, surrounded by the Forbidden Forest, with my wife and son. I'm scheduled to begin teaching classes in digital marketing at New York's School of Visual Arts MFA Visual Narrative program in 2015.
