WHAT IF . . ?
The Expeditioners series started with a series of What-Ifs?
What if the computers all crashed and it was discovered that the maps of the world were all wrong?
What if there were new places to explore, places not on the official maps of the world?
What if a 13-year-old boy, the son of a famous explorer who had disappeared while on an expedition, came into possession of half of a mysterious map?
The Expeditioners series is my answer to these questions and more!

The Expeditioners and the Secret of Drowned Man's Canyon
Computers have failed, electricity is extinct, and the race to discover new lands is underway! In this nail-bitingly thrilling adventure novel, brilliant explorer Alexander West has just died under mysterious circumstances, but not before smuggling half of a strange map to his intrepid children — Kit, the brain, M. K., the tinkerer, and Zander, the brave. Why are so many government agents trying to steal the half-map? What powerful secrets does it hold? And where is the other half? It's up to Alexander's children — the Expeditioners — to get to the bottom of these questions, and fast.
"Full of kid power, clues, codes and maps, this will appeal to sophisticated readers who appreciate their adventure served with heaping helpings of cleverness." —Kirkus

Why did Alexander leave the maps behind, and why are government agents so determined to seize them? What is really going on in a mysterious and unknown stretch of the Caribbean, famous for its violent storms and shipwrecks? And what is the huge contraption M.K. is building in her workshop? As two world powers come to the brink of war, Kit must find a deadly hidden island and unlock its secrets, hoping he has the courage to follow the trail of maps, wherever it may lead.
"A quickly paced and entertainingly twisty adventure."––Kirkus
"As with book one, [The Expeditioners and the Secret of King] Triton's Lair is an absolutely cracking yarn, the pure strain of kids' adventure tales." — Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing
