Man, if I could only get a ride to school in one of those soundproofed self-driving giants, it’d be like riding inside a bank vault.From THE FORTUITOUS PHOBIAS OF LEO FLINCH
A Middle-Grade Fantasy (50,000 words)
When twelve-year-old Leo Flinch discovers that giant “land yachts” are taking over his town, he’s certain his end-of-the-world phobia is coming true. But to save the planet, he’ll have to get rid of the mega-vehicles, not hide inside them!
The mutt’s unblinking brown eyes stared straight ahead, as if he didn’t want anyone to know he was actually conversing with me.From THE FORTUITOUS PHOBIAS OF LEO FLINCH
Like The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl, this story reveals that sometimes you gotta be bold to turn lousy situations around. A humorous tale about a phobic kid working with a pack of animal shelter mutts to save the world, it’ll appeal to fans of The Mortification of Fovea Munson and the Max Einstein series.
