Teaming up with The Syracuse Crunch

I'm thrilled to have the support of the Syracuse Crunch hockey team in my endeavor to promote and encourage our children to read more and read often. Some Crunch magic has been weaved into The Puck Hog story line, and the release of the book should time out well with the unveiling of the new look for our favorite AHL team, with new parent club, the Anaheim Ducks. Still waiting for a firm date on the release of the book. Stay tuned!

The Puck Hog on Track for Publishing

I met with the publisher again yesterday and The Puck Hog is right on schedule. The book should be on store shelves and available for purchase in October. Timing looks good, and should time out for the start of the 2010-2011 hockey season. The manuscript is being carefully reviewed by an editor right now and the illustrations are nearly complete. It's all very exciting and my marvelous tour of North Country Books has reaffirmed my belief that I knocked on the right door in my search for the perfect publisher. I'll keep you posted on the book's progress.
