"An intriguing story of adventure, recommended.

It's all fun and games until you realize the reality of it. The Intruders tells the story of six Bronx teens flung into a future war where they use their knowledge of the subways to win a war where the surface of the Bronx has once again become a forest. Initially enjoying their new found importance, they soon realize war is no game."

-Midwest Book Review, March 2010 (Oregon, WI USA)

 Dialog is convincing, relationships very true-to-life, emotions mixed and genuine, and the story’s intriguing and fun.

-Sheila Deeth,The Writers Network

Right away you are thrown into the adventure…. Every page has a new surprise. I loved best was the heartfelt moment where the main character struggles with showing his true emotions and being a leader to his peers. This book is suitable for any age, as it reflects all of our inner struggles in everyday life. A great read!

This book about a black and a white kid switching bodies handles race very well. This is a brave thing to do and done successfully…. Great character development….

-Judge's commentary, Writer's Digest Awards Contest

 Linked is an enticing story about a bond between two young teens from different backgrounds. I was immediately hooked when their strange connection began and loved following their stories...
