THE INVENTOR'S SECRET Released Today!

Chad Morris's middle-grade novel, CRAGBRIDGE HALL: THE INVENTOR'S SECRET is out from Shadow Mountain Publishing today! Chad is currently unable to promote his book (which has a great cover, if I may say) today because he's a dedicated dad and staying with his daughter in the hospital, so we're just going to take the steering wheel and drive this sucker all over town on his behalf. ;)

What's the book about, you ask? Well. I shall tell you.


Imagine a school in the year 2074 where students don’t read history, but watch it happen around them; where running in gym class isn’t around a track, but up a virtual mountain; and where learning about animals means becoming one through an avatar.

Welcome to Cragbridge Hall, the most advanced and prestigious school in the world. Twin siblings Abby and Derick Cragbridge are excited as new students to use their famed grandfather’s inventions that make Cragbridge Hall so incredible. But when their grandfather and parents go missing, the twins begin following a trail of clues left by their grandfather. They must find out where their family is, learn who they can trust, and discover what secrets are hidden within Cragbridge Hall.

Abby and Derick soon realize they are caught in a race with a fierce adversary to discover their grandfather’s greatest secret–a dangerous discovery that could alter both history and reality.


So there you have it. Go check it out!


About the Author

Chad Morris grew up wanting to become a professional basketball player or a rock star. (Inspired by Animal from the Muppets, he’s been banging on drums since he was eight years old.) After high school, he wrote and performed sketch comedy while going to college, and eventually he became a teacher and a curriculum writer. He lives in Utah with his wife and five kids. Chad would love to teach at Cragbridge Hall.

Unlike Oscar Cragbridge, however, he hasn’t really invented anything, though his son once sketched out blueprints for a machine that would turn celery into cookies.

    1. Since it's by Shadow Mountain, I presume any Deseret Book or Seagull Book. It's also at Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble :)
