“What an exciting series! Though it’s geared primarily to boys, this series is fun for everyone. Filled with technological adventure, mystery, humor and sports, this is one of the most fun books I’ve ever written.” – Chris
- When I first completed this book, it was about Matt and his best friend, Veronica, who lived next door. After focussing more on making a series for guys, I booted Veronica and brought in Lamar, Gill and Alfonzo. Veronica ended up becoming the intriguing Isabel.
- What happens in the football game in chapter one actually happened to me. I was the “secret weapon.”
- Matt’s first encounter with Alfonzo is based upon a short story I once wrote called, “Who’s the Stranger?”
