Fearless Friday

Achilles was a fearless slayer, not a fear-slayer.

I’m thrilled to be working with Carrie Gleason, my editor at Lorimer, on another sixth grade comedy. Dave Davidson, 6th Grade Fearslayer, will be published in Spring 2014. This will be a boyish sort of follow-up to 26 Tips for Surviving Grade 6. It’s completely unrelated, with all new characters and stories, but it shares an episodic format, school setting, and goofy humour.

There’s a lot to fear in grade 6. Public speaking contests. School dances. Mean kids. Scary teachers. Puberty.  Everyone needs a friend like Dave Davidson to help them get through it.

Don't be scared. Call Dave.
Don’t be scared. Call Dave.

The book has already received a solid review from my 11-year-old son, whose only complaint is that it’s too short. “Can you write more Dave Davidson stories?” he asked. “Even if it’s just for me?”

I just may.

I’ll fill in more details on Dave and his misadventures in the months to come.
