I have an actual oeuvre! English majors -- feel free to start writing papers about me.
(I don't know if 10 books is really the official dividing line between "a bunch of books some dude wrote" and "an author's oeuvre." But what the heck? Someone's gotta make the call.)
The book that's taking me into oeuvre-dom is Nick and Tesla's Secret Agent Gadget Battle, the third entry in the middle-grade mystery series I've been doing with Science Bob Pflugfelder. I suppose authors with an "oeuvre" aren't supposed to write books with phrases like "Secret Agent Gadget Battle" in the title, so maybe the Cliff's Notes folks don't need to get those Steve Hockensmith study guides printed up too soon. But hey -- at least Booklist and School Library Journal have given my new book their seal of approval.
"...this high-speed caper with comical characters, clever kid detectives, and an ever-deepening mystery (with a cliff-hanger, of course) will keep the pages turning."
Sayeth School Library Journal:
"Although the third in the series, this entertaining and humorous whodunit is straightforward enough that it can be read as a standalone. Cautious Nick and confident Tesla are both well defined, as is the quirky cast of comical characters that surrounds them...With the promise of more mystery, science, and humor to come, children will be anxiously waiting for more adventures -- and more inventions -- from Nick and Tesla."
And exulteth I:
