Wesley King has written many books, including Laura Monster Crusher, Dragons vs. Drones, and the Silver Birch and Ruth & Sylvia Schwartz Award-winning OCDaniel. He has recently come to terms with the fact that his first career choice of Jedi may be impractical. He is now embarking on his second choice: author. King’s interest in super powers and dark humour colours much of his work, including his upcoming titles. He lives in Nova Scotia with his family.
Enemy of the Realm
Marcus Brimley is back on Earth with Dree and George in tow. The group’s mission is clear: Find the Flames’ ancient Egg and bring it back to Dracone, so that its powerful dragon magic can be harnessed in the fight against the drones. But when the U.S. government complicates their plans, Marcus, Dree, and George must figure out another way to get their hands on the Egg even if it means making an enormous sacrifice.
Laura Monster Crusher
When Laura’s family moves before eighth grade, she expects her new school to be like the old one: full of unimaginative bullies. What she doesn’t expect are the snake-like yellow eyes watching her from the forest. Or the mysterious rattling in her closet. But when Laura finally discovers the source of the rattling, things take on a whole new level of weird. It turns out Laura has just been given the most important job in the world: Monster Crusher. Her role is simple: protect the earth from the horrors beneath their feet. Eighth grade is about to get a lot more interesting.
