“If you want to read a story about two great kids, this is it.”

Pat Quinn- Hockey Guru

“I read Interference to my grandson and we both loved it!”

Bob Clarke, General Manager of the Philadelphia Flyers

“This book is a terrific read for adults as well as young people and speaks the truth about diabetes. Josh will be a hockey player with diabetes, not a diabetic hockey player.”

CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“The viewpoint is that of a middle child wanting his parents’ attention. His focus is on this need and not on the changes that he should recognize as warning signs that something is physically wrong with him. The story deals with real issue a young person could face while growing up.”
