Hello readers and fellow wordsmiths, thank you for stopping by.

My goal for this tour is to reach as many parents, guardians, and teens as possible, especially young male readers. I wrote this book for tweens and teens, especially the young male readers to help create someone and something to connect to while becoming a young man and young woman.

The characters speak from a place you can relate to. The situations can take place in anyone's life.

I'd love to hear about the stories from the adults who have been able to read this story with a special tween or teen in their life.

The book also has 10 workbook questions in the back for discussion about the story and to examine some things going on in the life of the reader.

The synopsis is done poetically and a poem finishes the book. I did this to excite the power of poetry and words in the reader. There is also a portrait that can be bought with the book and works well as a gift. I wanted to also introduce art as a needed form of expression to our young readers.

Remember this book is part 1 of 'The Clifton Henderson' series. Each year a new book will address other situations, issues and concerns of our character as he and his sidekicks grow up.

Please stop by my website to gain more information or drop me a line. I enjoy hearing from you.

Enjoy reading as I will continue to enjoy writing stories for you and 'Doing It From The Heart & Soul.'
