From the award winning author of 'No Hope for Gomez!' comes a collection of impossible tales. Permeating the cracks between the past and the present is the realm of Unspent Time; time that was allotted but never spent. This is where we find the stories that could have been true.

Such as the story of Kiala, whose caretaker disappears one day, leaving her as the sole Huntress to battle the giant octopi to feed her village. Or the revealing tale of Goki Feng Ho, the ancient Chinese art of decoding the meaning of car license plates. And the heartbreaking story of the man responsible for choosing the colors of the insides of your shoes. And let's not forget the story behind Unspent Time itself, the metaphysical ramifications of which will leave the scientific community feeling mostly indifferent about it for decades to come.
Nominated for GoodReads Laugh out Loud book of 2012

Sound bites from Unspent Time:

"I'm looking into my past lives. I'm convinced some of them still owe me money."

"I'm very polite by nature, even the voices in my head let each other finish their sentences."

"I didn't actually want to do it," Kiala told the boy. "The universe just kind of conspired to force me to make a fool of myself. It does that quite a lot, actually."

"Sadly, my socks are like snowflakes, no two are exactly alike."

Here's what reviewers had to say:

"A veritable page turner of nonstop laughs!" -- Reader Views

"Extremely witty and clever writing." -- California Chronicle
"A Party for your Brain!" -- Warren Baxter
