I started to write for my son, a reluctant reader. I set out to write a series of books that captivated from the first chapter and pushed the reader through with a solid plot, relentless action and adventure, and humour.
Comments received from parents and teachers indicate I've accomplished my goal. I'm very proud of the Boulton Quest Series. It has captivated the hearts of reluctant readers around the world, boys and girls alike, and is entertaining their brothers, sisters, parents, and grandparents.
Camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, and getting into trouble. What a great way to grow up. One of my favourite memories is sitting on the handlebars of my brother's bike, my dog on my lap, as he careened down the steep mountain trails above our home in Kamloops, BC. My brother and I had caves, tree forts, frog filled ponds, and cactus patches to play in, and slingshots for protection. Somehow I survived my childhood and proudly moved on to fatherhood. My children, Christopher, Michael, Thomas, and Katherine, kindly donated their names, characters, and ideas to the Boulton Quest series of books.

I recently purchased this book for the kids. Each of my 4 children read the book quickly cover to cover. As they had read it so quickly I though I would also read it. It is a continuous action book from the very beginning. It quickly moves to keep the readers interest from beginning to end. The kids and I thoroughly enjoyed the action, the adventure, and the way siblings can go from fighting amongst themselves to working towards a goal. All true in each family regardless of background. I would highly recommend this book for the whole family.

The tags pretty much cover it. Mystery, action, bullies, action adventure, teen action, and so on. I haven't read an adventure story in a while and so I don't know if this was typical but it was certainly non-stop, not a page without incident.
There were a few things I thought needed tightening up but on the whole, I could recommend as a complete rollercoaster. There's enough adventure here for three books, all crammed into one ...
