My son is 10 and he borrowed one your books (Imposter) from his school library last week. I tried to search online to make sure his age is appropriate to read your books but no luck.
He’s still into Jackson Percy kind of books. Please advise.
I have a number of teen fans, but ten might be a little young for Imposter, which deals with some sensitive father-son issues and is a suspense novel. Two suggestions: Heartland is a teen favorite, if it’s available.
Also, I have a fantasy series that I am writing under my Thomas Locke pen name. I have made a clear separation between the Davis Bunn and Thomas Locke brands so that those evangelical readers who don’t like fantasy aren’t drawn in.
I just wanted to say thank you for your books.
My wife and I homeschool our kids and try to raise them with Christian values. We have a 15-year-old son who just devours books, and it is always a challenge to find wholesome, interesting, and inspiring books for him to read. I also have that challenge.
I just finished reading The Lazarus Trap, and I loved it. I grew up reading Tom Clancy novels, and I spent several years as an officer in the US Navy, working on some intelligence things, etc. However, after becoming a Christian, I don’t read many of those types of books anymore because they are too filled with vulgarity and other things that I just don’t want to read about, and I certainly don’t want my kids reading.
Your books seem to fill a void in this area, where they are exciting and inspiring, and clean and I really appreciate them.
It is also good for my son, because his dream is to write Christian novels; and he’s a very good writer at this young age. I’m sure your books will help him along his journey. He started The Lazarus Trap last night, and couldn’t put it down.
Please tell your son that having new readers of his generation is a genuine honor for me.
He may also be interested to know that I have started a new line under the pen name I have used in the past—Thomas Locke—the name of one of my Revolutionary War-era ancestors. There are two genres of books here, both aimed at his generation of readers, and seeking to instill Christian moral values into these genres. The first series is Legends of the Realm, C.S. Lewis-type fantasies.
The second series, Fault Lines, includes Michael Chrichton-style thrillers.
Book 1 in that series is Trial Run, which released August 4, 2015.
Book 2 in the series, Flash Point, will debut during the summer of 2016.
