Thanks for the shout out for The Purloined Boy--coming out this week. I had the privilege of working with Mortimus Clay in editing and publishing the book through Finster Press. Mortimus has built a loyal following among students and teachers in both Connecticut and Massachusetts schools. If any of your readers would like to take a look at The Purloined Boy, the first chapter is available for free download at
