Here’s a description to give you an idea of what you’ll be reading:


Little Mountain, Big Trouble is a labor of love that pays homage to the Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program. It’s an adventure novel for Middle-Grade readers and features a Little Brother and Big Brother who are co-protagonists. Here’s a teaser:

Twelve-year-old EJ is a short, unpopular, shy, self-described loser. He lives with his mother and younger brother on the wrong side of town and spends every other weekend with his hard-to-please, deadbeat father. Because surviving school and his home life are challenging enough, EJ’s the last kid you’d expect to dream of someday climbing Mount Everest …

… until he’s matched with a volunteer Big Brother. Russ is the opposite of EJ in almost every way. Despite their differences, they bond over helping EJ achieve his mountain-climbing dream. Their first goal is to hike to Minnesota’s highest point, Eagle Mountain.

But when a ferocious thunderstorm strikes in the middle of their trek, EJ and Russ are plunged into a life-or-death crisis. Fighting his loser self-image with every step toward safety, EJ learns that standing tall has nothing to do with height and everything to do with determination, heart, and courage.

Stay tuned for more information on the publication date, book launch parties, and pre-ordering possibilities.
