Author Biography

A husband and parent to a wonderful wife and four great kids that have inspired me in many ways. In the early 2000, I produced a local newsletter called the "Ottoville Commotion" that highlighted area sports teams and the players on them. My two youngest sons are heavily involved in the martial arts which led to me writing several articles for an area martial arts magazine. I finally took the bull by the horns early in 2014 and decided to pursue my passion for writing and started a fictional children's series call "Brendon & Carson's Ninja Adventures" which focuses on promoting the martial arts and positive benefits that come from it. My daughter and her love for music then took me in another direction and I started another series called "Tori and the Jackstones" which promotes the benefits of music to youth. My hopes are to inspire young readers to take up martial arts and to get involved in music programs. The books do not play down to a child's age but seek to challenge them in hopes that they will go to the dictionary's or read the books with older siblings or parents and create new and lasting bonding memories. Filled with word searches, mazes and more along the way that parents and children together can enjoy and take on.

Reviewed by Samantha Gregory for Readers' Favorite

Brendon and Carson's Ninja Adventures Rise of Bad Boys Inc by Rod P. Stoner is a puzzle book for boys (and girls) who like ninjas and martial arts tales. The book contains a basic story that explains who each of the ninja characters are, including some of their basic weapons that they use. It follows a simple storyline that engages the reader and makes them interact in order to move the story forward. The book includes various puzzles and brain teasers such as mazes, memory games and other fun activities that will keep children entertained for hours. I feel that this will engage children more as it is difficult to get some children to read or to at least enjoy it and this book offers them challenges that will keep them hooked.

Rod P. Stoner has laid out Brendon and Carson's Ninja Adventures Rise of Bad Boys Inc. well, with scroll designs on the pages laying out the various tasks to be completed. The artwork is simple but easily distinguishable as it is required to tell the 'characters' apart as you move through the story.
The dialogue is encouraging and child friendly. It is not unlike a written form of some brain teaser video games available on the wii or ds. And at a fraction of the price. The book ends with 'to be continued.' More adventures would be welcomed by children and I believe this is the start of an exciting series that will continue to be popular with children between the ages of 8-11.
