SO PROUD TO INTRODUCE RESTART

It’s finally here, RESTART, my newest stand-alone novel.

Chase Ambrose doesn’t remember falling off the roof. He doesn’t remember hitting his head. In fact, he doesn’t remember anything. He wakes up in a hospital room and suddenly has to learn his whole life over again … starting with his own name.

Okay, he’s Chase. But who is Chase? Soon he’s hearing stories of the alpha jock and bully who held a reign of terror over an entire school. Is that the person he was … and is destined to be again?

Is it possible to restart?

READ MY SHORT STORY "THE TROPHY"

When Jon Scieszka approached me about contributing to a short story collection spun from his wildly successful Guys Read program, he originally had me in mind for the anthology focusing on humor. But I had another idea – sports.

I’ve written a lot about sports over the years, from my young adult novel POP, to the SLAPSHOTS series, all the way back to MACDONALD HALL days and THE ZUCCHINI WARRIORS. THE TROPHY is my latest – originally published in GUYS READ: THE SPORTS PAGES.
