Code Name Flood-Cover Reveal



First an apology. I’ve been sitting on this cover reveal for, you know, forever. Or at least it seems like that. I was given the go-ahead to reveal away a few weeks ago, and then it sat on my to-do list getting stagnant. Not as stagnant as the leftovers in the back of my fridge I keep giving the stink eye, but close. And then Amazon beat me to it and took all the wind out of my sails. Which, as I already explained, I completely deserved. Oh well. Let’s pretend that didn’t happen and do the reveal here anyways. Shall we?

SO! Book TWO! The questions will be answered, and you will finally find out WHAT IS IN LAKE MICHIGAN!

Sorry for the cliff hanger ending on book one guys, really and truly. In my defense, when my book was sold to HarperCollins, it was sold as a…

How cool is this?


Have you heard of the website Imagination Soup yet?


It’s fabulous. Whether you’re a teacher or a parent, Melissa Taylor has her hand on the pulse of everything from book suggestions to the latest educational study or tip.  So imagine my excitement when a few weeks back I stumbled across this post on the best Adventure/Mystery books for kids and saw MY BOOK front and center. I could have probably died happy right there.

Instead, I wrote Melissa an email thanking her for featuring my book so prominently. As a new (relatively unknown) author, this kind of publicity is HUGE.


I mentioned in the email that I’d love to collaborate with her if she was ever interested.

And she was!

The following guest post was born!  Head on over to check it out!

A Family Christmas Refocused

Hey everyone! “MERRY CHRISTMAS!” It’s that time of year and I want to take a moment and encourage you to focus on what’s most important. I’m going to stay away from the cliche line, “The reason for the season.” But really let’s focus on what matters, Jesus birth. That said I guess I did use the cliche above, huh? Oh well. Go ahead and go check out this guest post I did for Tyndale Publishers on their blog. And please leave a comment about what you thought.

FREE Kindle Book 11/18 to 11/22


Truthful Test (A short story from #TQ4T) is FREE on Amazon Kindle from 11/18/ to 11/22. It was supposed to be up on my birthday 11/15, but alas.


After you’ve read it would you consider leaving a review?

Hundreds of years in the future, humans have spread out across the universe, discovering and settling new worlds. But along the way, they have forgotten their origin. Why has the past been forgotten? What clues could help uncover the mystery of mankind’s beginnings? And why does the quest become dangerous? The adventure unfolds in Brock Eastman’s Quest for Truth series, as archaeologists Elliot and Laura Wikk are mysteriously kidnapped in the midst of their search for mankind’s origins. Determined to find and rescue their parents, young Oliver Wikk and his siblings dodge danger and uncover clues of their own, finding themselves drawn as much to the search for truth as to the search for their parents.
