Miles Taylor and the Golden Cape

Attack of the Alien Horde (cover)

Today brings the release of my first middle-grade children’s novel, Miles Taylor and the Golden Cape: Attack of the Alien Horde. It’s a story about a seventh-grade boy who comes into possession of a cape that turns him into a superhero. The novel is a hybrid format containing mostly prose, but also 65 pages of comics by illustrator Dusty Higgins—whenever Miles becomes a superhero, the book switches to comics. Attack of the Alien Horde has a nice write-up in School Library Journal, and the Junior Library Guild made it one of their summer selections for 2015.

My deepest thanks to Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers, my editor Christian Trimmer, and my agent Jason Grode, for making it all possible.

    Hi, My 9 year old loved this book. Is there Book #2 and we’re not finding it?

    Hello, I am Micah and I loved your book!!! I thought it was amazing. I really liked how it went from novel to graphic novel. It made me feel like I was right beside Golden Gilded, I also felt like I was beside Miles while he was getting soda down his shirt and when he was struggling to talk to Josie. I hope that there are many more!!
