Paulsen's newest book, "Woods Runner," takes readers on a journey into the reality of the Revolutionary War, in the eyes of a teenage boy.
Paulsen says he wrote this novel because he wanted the Revolutionary War "to be seen in its reality."
"I wanted to dispute the mythic, clean, even antiseptic qualities in many histories, because war is never, not ever, clean," he stated.
"Woods Runner" is available online and in bookstores now. It retails for $15.99.
The sequel to "Lawn Boy" is also ready for his many young fans. "Lawn Boy Returns" came out in March and continues the story of the 12-year-old lawn mowing kid. This book retails for $12.99.
Paulsen has written more than 200 novels for children and teenagers. Three of the books he authored are Newbery Honor Books ("Hatchet," "Dogsong" and "The Winter Room"). He's also published fiction and non-fiction for adults.
These metro area vists are part of Paulsen's first tour in more than five years. He usually divides his time between living in Alaska, New Mexico and on his sailboat in the Pacific Ocean.
When he's not busy writing, Paulsen has a knack for adventure. He has run the Iditarod dog sled race twice (1983, 1985), rode a motorcycle cross country and sailed a boat to Fiji.
