Poly Drivers: Local author visits Poly for assemblies

Mike Thayer, a local author of children’s fantasy adventure stories, spent the afternoon at Poly on Wednesday, Sept. 25, speaking with 3rd-5th graders.

His first novel Passage to Avalon (Book 1 in The Epic Adventures of the Techno Wizard) is the story of a boy from Montana who gets transported to a strange and magical world, but still maintains cell phone signal back to Earth.

During his presentation, Thayer spoke about nurturing creativity, developing a productive obsession, and shared an in-depth look at the novel writing process. His second book in this series will be released this December.

This event was made possible through donations to the Poly Drive PTA. Thank you for your support of offerings like this one.
