How would you act if part of your personality was stolen with a brain-sucking machine?

Lester Smythe has a black heart. He's invented a dangerous brain-sucking machine that removes the goodness from its victims, and he intends to use it to rid the world of all human kindness. But Lester didn't count on thirteen-year-old Callum McCullock and his two best friends, Sophie and Jinx. The trio vow to destroy the brain sucker. And nothing will stop them.

Review quote

I am sure this rollicking, hilarious romp will garner a growing army of fans ... Wheelchair-bound Callum, ingenious inventor Sophie and unlucky but plucky Jinx combine to form a loyal, brave, formidable team. Boys and girls from Middle and Upper Primary Grades will thoroughly enjoy this absurd but utterly engaging, fast-paced and funny adventure. Recommended. * Magpies * There's plenty of action, amazing inventions from Sophie, a ludicrous succession of mishaps (thanks to Jinx) and the pleasing integration of a disable character - Callum is in a wheelchair. It's not to be taken too seriously, and is a fun read. * Reading Time * rollicking, ingenious-kids-save-the-world action story that thrives on humour, slapstick and wild improbability. * Angelina Sbroma *

He currently works as a freelance writer for many of New Zealand's top advertising agencies.
