Trouble Out West, my second book, has just been released and it’s yours for the asking. Kick off your summer reading with more real-life stories of my sons adventures. Unlike the lake setting of my first book, Beached in a Camper, you’ll laugh out loud as trouble finds them in a place they’ve never been before, the wide open spaces of the Dakotas.
Narrated by younger brother, Adam, here are a few teasers of how the boys’ trouble magnifies and things aren't so perfect:
• Mom usually grins at my embarrassing moments, but this is bigger, more troublesome. In the mirror I glance at the flypaper black-fly graveyard glued to my hair. This is more like trouble with a capital “T.”
• The double-trouble mess we’re in flashes through my mind. First is the blanket with a baseball-size spy-hole cut out of the middle and second is Larry’s toothbrush with marshmallow-slime cooties.
• Wonderful? I’m forced to wake up before seven, I get kidnapped from my brother and best friend, and now I’m harnessed with this girl. Trouble just seems to find me.
