  1. Any Series? I know this is random but I really enjoyed Fish and I hope you make another book or even a series. I will also read all of your books because you are awesome!

    1. Yikes. That’s a good question. I need to finish the third book in the Jack series with Bill Nye. Then I’ll finish the sequel. It’s halfway there…

  2. I first read Fish after trading books with a friend in elementary school, and I’ve enjoyed reading it ever since! It’s one of my favorite childhood books, and coming back to it from time to time brings back good memories. Thank you for working hard and writing such an enjoyable work of literature!

  3. Hi,
    I really like the book, Jack and the Geniuses! Thank you for writing it! I want to be a writer, have any tips?😃

    1. Thanks! Keep reading, and start writing your own stories! They could be fiction, nonfiction, or even a combo. And write them for you…if you like them enough, someone else probably will, too.

  4. I know you must hear it a lot but I absolutely loved your book fish. I have spent over a year searching to buy a new copy after loosing mine and finally found it with the very specific search of “fish the boy pirate”. I am so happy to have found this again. This book inspired me to get my first job and to take my own path at the same time. Thank you for making such a big impact on my life.

    1. Wow. Thank you. I’m so happy the book made such an impact. And I’m sorry it was hard to find! We’re going to reissue it, along with a sequel, in 2023. Hope the new one doesn’t disappoint!

    1. Thanks, Julio! If you’d like me to visit your school, ask one of your teachers or your librarian to send me a note! I’m so glad you liked the book.

  5. Thank you for being in my class today. Also thank you for the steps of being a writer.

  6. Hey, My name is Brad, and I am a Student at Washington and Lee University in Lexington Virginia. I just wanted to let you know how much your book Fish means to me. I can’t remember what grade I was in when I picked it up from a scholastic book fair, but it must have been soon after the paperback edition came out. I don’t know why I selected it up because I was already reading material above the suggested age level, but reading your book was one of the best decision I have yet made. I read through it in an afternoon. I couldn’t put it down. Since that initial read, it has become my comfort book. Although I consider myself a voracious reader and tackle wonderful and advanced works of prose regularly, your book still brings me immense joy when I crack open the pages, now worn from traveling with me across the US. I recommend it to all my friends and hope to one day read it to my children. I guess it just helps remind me that there are people out there trying to do good, even among scoundrel of the seas.
