Foreword Reviews, Winter Edition: "J.D.'s appealing, goofy narrative voice will attract trouble-seeking young readers, as will the fun yet spine-tingling Gothic themes, J.D.'s ghostbusting parents, and random illustrations of donuts and milk cartons. This chaotic adventure has all the elements that make kids giggle, and they'll keep turning the pages to see if Mr. Katz ever returns from the dark side. Ages eight and up."

Parent Guide | Author Q&A

Catastrophe looms in North Goethalsburg!

When twelve-year-old J.D. is tricked into taking possession of a book of spells, his best friend turns their teacher into a zombie. The zombification of Mr. Katz creates general chaos and a not-so-terrific time for near-genius J.D.

Teamed with his best friend Rodney, twin troublemakers, and an obnoxious ghost, J.D. must figure out how to change Mr. Katz back from one of the undead before he:

1. Escapes the janitor’s closet;
2. Eats their brains;
3. Wears J.D.’s spleen as a hat.

Can four boys armed with a slingshot, two boxes of jelly
donuts, and a handy zombie guide battle their mindless teacher and live to tell?

Probably not.

You’ll have to read Mr. Katz is a Zombie to find out.

Martin Barton Might be a Werewolf

Leisure suits. Ridiculous facial hair. Gold chains. Mirror balls. Terrible disco music.

Ten-year-old Miguel Vega is afraid. Very afraid. Convinced the howling he hears outside his bedroom window at night is a werewolf, Miguel hires J.D. to investigate his suspiciously hairy neighbor, Martin Barton. Drawn into the world of mythical creatures and cryptozoology, J.D. (almost) fearlessly gets to work. Can he and the Horn Boys save North Goethalsburg from not only the dire threat of werewolves, but a possible disco music resurgence?

Hmm. Maybe. You’ll have to read to find out.

Coming: Spring of 2015!

Ghost Pirates are the Worst Kind of Pirates

Aaargh! Thar be ghost pirates in North Goethalsburg!

When J.D. and his parents are called to investigate sightings of a peg-legged ghost pirate at the Adams’ Apple Orchard, J.D. and the Horn Boys catch treasure fever. Will the Goethalsburg Ghost Squad find the hidden booty and avoid the wrong end of the pirate’s sword? (Arr, I mean the sharp, pointy end, matey.) And will they dodge the curse of the Goethalsburg Money Pit where others have met with untimely ends?

Landlubbers, ye have to read to find out! Arr!

Coming: Fall of 2015-ish!
