Jamie and Windy, two young newcomers to a Wyoming mining town, befriend a frisky pack rat with the intriguing name of “Dynamite George.” He becomes the focus of their lives when his antics and stealthy behavior get him in trouble with the uranium miners, a group of hardworking men with nicknames like “Mick,” “Sonny,” “Woody,” “Skinny Wren,” and “Traitor Jack," the federal mining inspector. A late night escapade starting in the miners' shower room finds Dynamite George following the scent of Luigi's meatball sandwich into the depth of the mine with the night shift workers. The outcome is a series of events neither Dynamite George nor the miners bargained for – a gripping tale with a curious pack rat as the unlikely hero.

Through the adventures of a pack rat, Jamie and Windy take the reader into a world beneath the earth's surface and give them an understanding of mining and the people who work in the tunnels below. In this mining community, there are rumors that elf-like creatures (“Tommy Knockers”) are haunting the mine. When readers come up for air, they will have a better appreciation for those who work underground. Readers will develop a special love for that little furry creature who captured their hearts at the beginning of The Legend of Dynamite George – the Mining Pack Rat.

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.) 

Old Timey Switchboard Operator Cartoon


Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

And since nobody reads anything, I've simply removed the phone number from the site.  

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
