Book Review and Blog Tour: Finding Orion

Finding Orion is a unique story that starts with fried chicken flavored jelly beans and a clown announcing the death of Papa Kwirk.

Book Review: Sidekicked

Book Review: Sidekicked

Sidekicked is the story of Drew “The Sensationalist”, a sidekick in training whose hero, The Titan, is MIA. Drew is a teenager who has super senses – smelling, hearing, etc. Not the most glamorous powers to have, but it has him training with other sidekicks like his best friend Jenna, who is sidekick to the Fox. Jenna is supportive of Drew, but right of you can tell there’s a bit more that Drew feels for her. Full of teen angst, Drew tries his best to connect with his hero, but to no avail, he’s simply not interested and would rather […]
