HEADER REVIEW: "Even though my boys are grown, I found myself wishing they were young again so they could read NO EXIT (The Apple Grove Gang). This book is beyond refreshing - a great story about kids who still play outside, know people in their town and have an adventure that makes a difference in their lives. When the gang runs up against local politics that threaten their community center they find out how tough it is to fight city hall. Hamilton C. Burger's obvious delight in his craft shines through on every page. The kids in this book have real voices and real lives. No dungeons, dragons or wizards here, rather a book that will make both parents and young readers happy. Thank goodness there will be more in the Apple Gang series!" --Rebecca Forrester

Benny Churchill and Bug Beetle are off and running on the last day of school. They are ready for a great summer of fun with the Apple Grove Gang. Instead, they learn a lesson in politics. When the Apple Grove Community Center is closed, the Gang finds out just how hard it is to fight city hall. Finally, when their backs are against the wall, and they find out that there is no exit, the real fun and excitement begin.
I was born in 1960 and raised in the Midwest. I have always been a reader, finding escape in the pages of a good book. I inhaled books during my days of extensive world travel. Before the Nook and Kindle, even before laptops became the norm, I would pack six or eight paperbacks for an extended trip.
I had never, ever considered writing until I contacted an author about a fabulous book of theirs. It was suggested that I should try my hand writing. Here I am! I can never thank this person enough for the joy I receive from writing.
I have been married 32 years. My wife and I have two beautiful daughters, Katie and Maddie. Besides writing, I love to cook, travel, drive my Corvette. I have a dog and two cats.
