Three Times A Charm with Ace Hansen

Welcome to Three Times A Charm. I love meeting new authors, illustrators, bloggers, agents, editors or promoters from the children’s publishing industry and sharing their careers with my readers.

Today’s guest is author, Ace Hansen. Welcome to Strands of Thought, Ace. Tell us a little about you, please.

Ace Hansen doesn’t pass green gas. The author grew up in a household of boys and knows all about deadly stinkers, tree houses, and scary neighbors.

Ace enjoys all kinds of creepy things and has been known to devour entire bags of worms* while writing outrageous fiction.
*Gummy, of course. What were you thinking?

You sound like quite the expert on all things boy. We’d love to hear about your book.

When a mysterious green gas crisis breaks wind, the Global Air Group (GAG) offers a million-dollar prize to the first person to discover the cause. Julius Caesar Brown dreams of winning the cash so he can pay off Jake the Snake, the blackmailing bully who threatens to ruin his chances with the cutest girl in fifth grade. But Julius can barely pass a math test, let alone solve an international scientific mystery. What he needs is money. Fast. His mom volunteers him to help the Zombie Lady. Yeah. The crazy woman down the street who every kid knows eats boys’ brains. But Miss Crabtree’s no zombie. And winning the million-dollar prize may not be as far-fetched as Julius once thought.

I recommend my book to readers who like:

Diary of A Wimpy  Kid by Jeff Kinney
Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey
The BFG or anything by Roald Dahl 

Readers, your turn, share your top 3 responses to Ace's question:

I wish there were more books about. . .?

Great question! Now, for the Threes. Share with us your top 3’s to help us know you a little better.

  • Top 3 snacks to munch on while working.
Gummy worms, gummy pterodactyls, and gummy tyrannosaurus rex (depending on my appetite. What? You’ve never had gummy pterodactyls or tyrannosaurus rex?

  • Top 3 leisure activities.
star bathing, moon hopping, asteroid smashing

  • Top 3 professions you wanted to be when you grew up.
hover craft pilot, galaxy explorer, candy tester

Candy tester, now why didn’t I think of that? Ace, where can our readers find you online and buy your book?

Thanks for charming us on this week’s Three Times A Charm, Ace. Best of luck to you and your fun new book.
