|About the Author
For twenty years, Drake fostered a close connection with young readers as a teacher and study skills coach.
His book, Middle School Study Skills (1996) has sold across the U.S., and his related newspaper column for the Idaho Falls Post Register ran from 2001 to 2002.
In 2009, What Not to Do When You Find a Spaceship sold over 200 copies at three Atlanta book festivals and had many young readers asking for the sequel. (Coming soon... really!)
Drake is available for elementary and middle school visits to share Tommy's story and help students discover the joy of reading.
