About this title

Synopsis:

The future looks bleak unless eighteen-year-old Lance and his New Camelot Earth Warriors can save the planet from catastrophic climate change.

Spurred by twelve-year-olds Billy, Enya, Itzamna, and his ten-year-old brother, Chris, Lance creates a branch of Earth Warriors, a youth-led movement designed to save the earth from its greatest enemy - greed.

His involvement leads to Earth Warrior crews springing up all across America. Millions of kids leap into action, paralyzing the country and alarming the rich and powerful.

Having adopted his father's philosophy of doing what's right, rather than what's easy, Lance makes serious enemies when he calls out New Camelot donors who represent fossil fuel or other polluting industries, and then barely escapes a series of "accidents" designed to kill him.

When he challenges the United States Congress to step up and act immediately on the climate crisis, the attacks on him escalate. With the majority of America's kids on his side, Lance and his young Earth Warriors prepare for the United Nations Conference of the Parties in Paris, where they will call upon world leaders to stop talking about sustainability and start acting on it.

But whoever wants him dead isn't giving up. Will Lance and his crew live long enough to even get to Paris?

Warrior Kids is a standalone tale set within the Children of the Knight universe.

From the Author:

Utilizing a fictional youth organization, Earth Warriors, to showcase current environmental issues, Warrior Kids seeks to both entertain and educate children and teens and spur them to action. Filled with memorable characters, exciting situations, and lots of real-life activities that can engage kids in the fight to heal the planet, this book is perfect for parents and teachers. It ties into current events by having the finale take place at the 21st United Nations Conference of the Parties (COP21) this December in Paris. The back of the book has Extension Activities for kids and educators, as well as study guide questions and links to various websites where readers can find out how to become more involved.
 
The primary characters range in age from ten to eighteen, so there is something to engage readers from the fifth grade to the twelfth, and the activities can be tailored to every one of these grade levels.
 
Within its fictional story, Warrior Kids is chock-full of facts and current events related to climate change. Its themes are timely and can be applied across every curricular area, and within every household. Lance teaches his young Earth Warriors that shifting human consciousness away from a "me" centered way of thinking to a more "we" centered mindset is the key to healing the planet and moving the human race toward a more sustainable future.
 
The action sequences and themes of home, family, unity, love, friendship, and doing what's right rather than what's easy should engage every reader on some level and reinforce the need for all of us to step up and lead the way.
 
The eBook version is free for educators who contact the author via social media or email (see Author Bio.)
