As of today, the embarrassing lack of monster detectives in your life is now a thing of the past.

Your welcome.
The monsters are here! The monsters are here! (Don't worry, that's a good thing.) Tank & Fizz: The Case of the Slime Stampede is now available at your local bookstore and online everywhere. Run, slither or slurp your way to your local bookstore or favourite online retailer and get your claws on ...

My newest mystery series for middle grade readers is out in two weeks. Here's what some folks are saying about Tank & Fizz.
Turns out book reviewers like goblins and trolls. Who knew? With the launch for Tank & Fizz: The Case of the Slime Stampede only a few weeks again, reviews are rolling in and so far they've been slime-tastic. Kirkus reviews gets gooey: O'Donnell rolls out a slick subterranean caper flavored with ...

I dropped by +Mia Wenjen's amazing PragmaticMom blog to share book ideas to get your reluctant reading gamer turning the pages. And there's a chance to win one of my books, too. So, it's totally worth the visit.

It's December 31st, 2014. That means the Year in Review lists are clogging up your newsfeeds, webpages and neural datastreams (if you're reading this in 2025). This is another one of those. Sorry. I'll admit that I write them mostly for myself. After 10 years of blogging, this space has become a ...

Around the world, young computer makers are rejoicing. Kano has arrived. While I am definitely not young, I am right there geeking out with the kids. My own Kano kit arrived last week and I've been having a blast making music, designing new versions of Pong and hacking Minecraft into a big, ...

The Kano looks great... I was completely sold until I saw the price tag. I've been thinking of getting a few Raspberry Pis for my computing courses, and while I'd prefer the easier Kano, I guess  €150 x 3 or even x 6 is just a bit much...
Can't wait to hear about your experiences with it, though, +Liam O'Donnell !

Only the best books get slimed. And so can yours with this slimy recipe.
See what happens when someone lets the slimes out! No wonder Tank & Fizz are trying to stop the Slime Stampede in their first adventure. Don't worry, this slime is completely harmless and totally easy to make. Just ask the amazing folks at Orca who celebrated St. Patrick's Day with a slime ...

Thanks to +The Styling Librarian for letting me visit and share reading ideas. I'm giving away signed books, too. So, y'know, free stuff!
A few weeks ago, I dropped by the fantastic Styling Librarian's blog to share some of my favourite digital tools I use to get my students reading. You can read the post below, but you should totally drop by the Styling Librarian for a ton of great kids book reviews and articles.

Tank & Fizz, my newest book series for middle grade reluctant readers has monsters, mysteries, choco-slug cookies and a really cool trailer.

I'm kinda excited about it.
Ready for the monster invasion? Don't worry, the beasts I'm talking about are in the fourth grade and eat choco-slug cookies, not people. That's right, I'm talking about Tank & Fizz, my newest detective duo. The arrival of their first mystery: Tank & Fizz: The Case of the Slime Stampede is only ...

I am a very lucky writer. I get to make stuff up, send it out to the world and have people read it.
I am a very lucky writer. I get to make stuff up, send it out to the world and have people read it. That sounds pretty basic, but sometimes that is all I want from this whole writing thing. That's why my brain never fails to explode when readers take the time to tell me what they think of my ...

Thanks for the shout out Sabine! I'm having so much fun putting this series together and can't wait for Minecraft fans to read it.
