Buzz About “Brothers, Bullies and Bad Guys”
“The author has linked the sub-plots along with the main plot very well, making the story flow. The characters are smart and they will impress readers with how they overcome obstacles with a lot of skill. The theme will interest children and all the adventure and mystery will give them a lot of excitement while reading. The other characters also lend good support to Christopher and Michael and make the plot interesting. An enjoyable story and very effortless story telling that makes it an engaging read.” ~ 5 Star Review, Mamta Madhavan for Readers’ Favorite
“There’s quite a lot to like about this book, starting with the unpredictable nature of the adventure plot. It unfolds in a cinematic way that’s interesting, and the misadventures of the brothers are good for a laugh. The second part I really enjoyed was the characters of Chris and Michael. Their bravery and skill should hopefully empower young people to read more books, develop more skills, and be nice to their peers. The writing, throughout the thriller portions of the book, was very effective.” ~ AIA Reviewers, Amazon
“As a story to get teenage boys reading, and to keep them reading, this book does a great job.” ~ Jayem, Amazon
My review: Chris and Michael are brothers. When intruders enter their home they are thrown into a wild, traumatic adventure that changes there lives. Good read.

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 sling shots 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 theBoulton Quest series of books.
