Kinzie's Kinventions: Kinzie's Got Talent (Book 1)
It’s talent show time, and Kinzie could win a real pretend-gold trophy!
There’s only one problem. Kinzie can’t find her talent. Sure, she’s good at a lot of things. But dodging the Ferocious Lee Monstrous monster in the basement, fixing her best friend’s tapped-out tap shoes, and reading Whiz Kidz science magazine don’t count as talent.
But could they be part of a bigger, soon-to-be-discovered talent?
Kinzie's Kinventions: Earth To Kinzie
Kinzie’s ninety-eight fans love her problem-solving videos on her very own Kinzie’s Kinventions ViewTube channel!
But how do you solve problems like a new wobbly-bobbly-headed baby brother or a know-it-all big sister?
Lucky for her, Kinzie doesn’t have to invent anything for those problems because her sister tells her a secret. Kinzie’s from Jupiter, and her space parents will return for her on her seventh birthday. That’s in three days! She can blast off to Jupiter to live with her space parents. Problem solved, easy-peasy cherry freezie!
But what if she misses her Earth mom and dad? Or her friends and pets? Or … what if Kinzie’s sister is just tricking her?
Kinzie's Kinventions: Kinzie And The P.U. Zoo
The whole class is going on a field trip to the zoo!
But too bad for classroom rivals Kinzie and Ben. Neither of them can go thanks to getting—and sharing—pink eye. To make it even worse, Ben’s mom can’t take off from work, which means Ben has to come to Kinzie’s house for the day. And there’s no time to make a Kinvention to stop that.
Kinzie and Ben decide if they can’t go on the field trip, maybe they can create their own backyard zoo instead. What could possibly go wrong with that great idea?

My Special Word Book 2
When his parents open an animal clinic in Columbus, Ohio, Xander must start 5th grade miles from home. He hopes he’s better at making friends than he is at getting his boomerang to work. With the help of his dog Bennie, his new friend Rachel, and some boomerang practice, Xander begins to feel like the move to Ohio might be okay. That is until he gets his first school assignment— finding a word to describe himself and his goals. Xander blurts out “boomerang”. He worries that he’s fumbled the assignment and wonders if Ohio will ever feel like home.
