Testimonials for Maya and the Crystal Skull

I'm thrilled that my latest novel Maya and the Crystal Skull is being well received. Maya and the Crystal Skull is my 85th book and a new direction for me, as I focus on longer novels for children and young adults. 

Here is what people are saying about Maya and the Crystal Skull.

...action-packed adventure...for readers aged 10+ who love history, great characters and plenty of plot twists.
Dee White, Kids' Book Capers

This a wholly enjoyable page turner with a wonderful, modern heroine on a classical hero journey. Maya's beliefs and bravery help her to overcome her hurt and not only seize the day but save it too. Any reader, young or old, will want more of her and her adventures.
John Dawson, artist and screenwriter

...the teen voices are realistic, it is easy to read and there is enough action and plenty of dialogue to keep the story moving. Readers will love to hate Sophia, Maya’s minder and enjoy the thrill of the chase through jungles and Mayan ruins...
Zoya Nojin, Buzz Words Books 

A book I recommend all children read. 
Warren Thurston, reviewer

The suspense is great throughout the book right until the end. 
Dianne, reader

So what is the story of Maya and the Crystal Skull? Naturally, I can't give you all the details but here is a little taste:

Move over Indiana Jones...

Maya's life has changed.

Her mother is dead, killed in a car accident; she's befriended by Ethan, a boy who claims he's from the spirit world; and now her father is missing.

What does the legend of the crystal skulls have to do with her father's disappearance? Will Maya travel to Mexico to save him? How can Maya's destiny have anything to do with the future of humankind?

The Mexican jungle, ancient Mayan ruins, dangerous bounty hunters and evil kidnappers...

Yes, Maya's life has changed.

The fate of the world now depends on her.

The adventure continues in July 2012 with Maya and the Daring Heist.
