RoboTales Release Day!


Introducing Robo to the panel audience at Salt Lake Comic Con.

It’s finally here! The book that my son and I have been working on these past four years is now available. I’m very excited.

RoboTales is a chapter book series for readers ages 7-13 that I wrote with my son Luke. These are fairytale retellings that take place in a fictional solar system. The stories are tied together by a lost robot dog who is broken and is trying to find out who he is and what he was built to accomplish.

The first book follows a twelve-year old mechanic named Tinker. He is scavenging for machine parts outside the city and finds a broken robot dog with the letters R.O.B.O. on his belly. This is no ordinary robot. Its hull is thick alloy. Robo can fly. Even better, he can fly in outer space. But Robo is busted, so he can’t really fly at all. Tinker takes him home to see if he can be repaired.

If you know a young reader who might enjoy a science fiction story about a boy and his robot dog, check out Tinker. The links below show you all the places Tinker is sold. Feel free to share this post with a friend and help spread the word.
