YOUNG DAVY CROCKETT: THE WILD FRONTIER WITH DINOSAURS  
Feb. 20, 2014
Author:  Kevin James Breaux
Category:  Children's: Middle grade
Description:  When Davy Crockett returns home after a long absence, he finds that many of his town's hunters have gone missing. Being a skilled hunter himself, Davy knows that the only time hunters disappear is when they are being hunted by something more skilled than them. Making it his responsibility to find out what is happening, Davy searches the local forest and what he finds is something he has never encountered before: dinosaurs.

In YOUNG DAVY CROCKETT: THE WILD FRONTIER WITH DINOSAURS, a nearly thirteen-year-old Davy Crockett is tested by his angry and often drunk father, his brothers, the wilds, and some mysterious goings on. Somehow, prehistoric beasts are appearing in the forests of Holston Valley, threatening Davy's family and his way of life. Curious to a fault, Davy seeks answers and attempts to hunt them, no hunter he knows has ever faced them before.

YOUNG DAVY CROCKETT: THE WILD FRONTIER WITH DINOSAURS is a 35K-word historically based middle grade novel. The book also has elements of horror, fantasy, and science fiction. It is the first in a "History vs. Pre-history Series," each book following will include a new historical figure in their younger years, such as Benjamin Franklin, who is met at the end of this story.

Other information:  While I am known as an adult author, I wrote this when challenged by my mentor Jonathan Maberry to write a MG horror for boys. Jonathan is well-known for his MG and YA works, and he thought my skill set would be perfect for the same.

Through my seven years as an author, I have never stopped striving to better myself as well as aid my fellow writers. I have seen some success, and after spending two consecutive years on the Bram Stoker Award shortlist, I'm pleased to be able to inform you that publishers now request short stories from me for their anthologies.

I'm a creative being and often described as loyal, intelligent and organized. What I really need at this point in my career is the guidance of an agent. I want to build a team and work together toward common goals.
