Escape, Intense Book 1
by Glenn Haggerty
I write for middle school and teenaged students because I want to provide serious entertainment from the Christian worldview. It’s tough being a tween or teen today, there’s so much bad stuff in our culture, and secular entertainment often offers only despair. I write to give kids hope that they too can make it through this difficult period of life. So I wrote Escape.
Escape, Intense Book 1 began as a scene in my mind featuring three boys biking in the sweltering Florida summer heat. From that scene, my imagination took off, and by God’s grace the story came together—an intense action/suspense adventure packed with relational angst. With its high action, Escape is a good read for reluctant readers, especially boys. And because it is only 127 pages with most of the story occurring in a single day, it is an easy read as well. The eBook version is free, and the print copy is inexpensive at $6.99 from either Amazon or B&N.
“I’d never seen a dead body before, but I was pretty sure the guy in the car trunk was dead.”
Middle school's tough, and Tyler Higgins just wants to hang with the cool kids. But Dustin’s idea of quality entertainment is spying on parked cars on Lover’s Lane. When two creeps show up with a body, Tyler doesn’t want to stick around. Then again, he might not have much choice.

The next book in my Intense Series is tentatively titled, Hyde, which follows the theme of the first three books and once again also serves as the name of the main antagonist. It is also set in Florida where Tyler is vacationing with his cousins. Once again, they get caught up in a mysterious disappearance that has to do with modern-day pirates and treasure buried in plain sight. I’ve done some research on the Spanish gold fleet of Seventeen-fifteen and discovered some interesting possibilities. I’m targeting a late fall 2018 release for this book.
And, I will also be releasing a Bible study companion for Run, Intense Book 2 which provides Biblical tips for finding friends and dealing with bullies on July 1, 2018.
