A new project I've begun writing:
SPRINT KART IN A SCRAP PILE will be the first in the new RED RACECAR SPEEDREADER Series, written for kids not quite ready for the middle-grade novels that make up the rest of the series but still wanting a racetrack-adventure.
Tyler Means would love to race any kind of car he could get his hands on, but with his dad confined to a wheelchair and unable to work, his family is struggling just to pay the bills. Then Tyler finds an old race kart in a pile of scrap metal. The adventure comes as Tyler tries to turn the kart into a competitive racer again, even though he has little money and even less of an idea how to do it.
