UPDATE: In order to achieve the quality I demand from my work, The Small Silver Speedster had been delayed slightly for revisions and new illustrations, and is now likely to begin shipping sometime in 1st quarter 2017.
The Small Silver Speedster is set in 1957, as Porsche gains its cult status and domination in sports car racing in the United States. It's the story of a father and his young daughter as they fly to New York City to pick up their new 356 A Speedster at Max Hoffman's iconic (Frank Lloyd Wright designed) dealership. While there, they enjoy a chance meeting with racing pioneer Denise McCluggage (whose path they will later cross on the track!).
The pair break in the Speedster with a cross-country drive home to California via Scenic Route 66. They prepare the Speedster for the emerging sports car racing scene of the 1950s – as iconic tracks like Riverside, Laguna Seca, and others open across the country. And together, they drive the car to its first race...
It's historical fiction, rigorously researched, then boiled down into a fascinating story that both kids and grownups will love.
