Asbury High and the Thief's Gamble Guest Post and Giveaway

 Pilot Owens’ Character Guest Post

If You Could Go Anywhere In The World With Anyone, Where Would You Go And Why? Also Why Did You Choose That Person?

            Cool question… the first part is obvious and that’s Carly Cosentino. Not only is she the world’s best girlfriend, super hot, athletic, and pretty smart, too, but she’s so much fun! I still honestly can’t believe we’re dating…

Anyway, I’d go anywhere with Carly. And, not to brag, but I literally can get into any country… let’s just say I know some tricks and bypassing most governments isn’t as hard as you’d think. Although I tried to explain it to Cornelious once and he looked at me like I had three heads. So, maybe it’s a little hard to explain, but I know I could book a ticket for two anywhere in the world.         However, if I’m bringing Carly with me, it’d have to be someplace warm. She loves getting tan, and swimming so I’d say anything under or above a certain latitude is out. And, if I knew she wouldn’t complain, then I’d love to take her to the Akihabara District in Japan. It’s pretty much the Mecca for electronics, just imagining what I could do there, and what I could make… it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside haha. Plus, one of my friends live there, and although we’ve never technically met in person (we’ve been conversing online for years now), he’d probably be an awesome tour guide and show us the best spots to find the latest tech. And, Carly and I both love sushi, so that’s an added bonus as well.

Man, just talking about this is making me think of all the possibilities. In fact, I now know where I plan to visit before high school and after I graduate high school…in a few years.

Asbury, although a haven to shoobies (tourists) in the summer, is a divided coastal town. With the rich half living in the East, and the rest living in the West, most friendships stay within their boundaries. Luckily for a spunky-smart tomboy, a clever billionaire athlete, a gossipy-in-the-know cheerleader, and a wrong side of the tracks technological genius, boundaries are a foreign concept. In fact, Maddie, Cornelious, Carly and Pilot have been Asbury’s strongest quartet for years, despite their vast differences.

Nevertheless, after a few weeks of starting high school, the foursome’s friendship is tested.

After a string of burglaries in East Asbury, the gang decides to solve the crime as a reason to make time for each other. The further they investigate, the more they find themselves constantly side-stepping tweedle-dee and tweedle-dum-like policemen, outsmarting local bully JB and his gang of misfits, and dealing with Cornelious’ billionaire father and Governor—who has disapproved of his son’s choice of friends for years. In addition to these obstacles, the foursome must also adapt to their evolving friendship with each other and their peers.

With upperclassmen, teachers, and teammates vying for their attention, the gang must work even harder to root out the red-herrings from the true thief. Aided by Carly’s gossip, Maddie’s boldness, Cornelious’ quick-wit, and Pilot’s knack for technology, the gang soon discovers its edge over the local police department.

About Kelly Brady Channick


For as long as she could remember, Kelly Brady Channick loved making up stories and leaving her listeners/readers on the edge of their seats.

Perhaps that’s why she always managed to talk herself out of trouble…

After graduating from NJ’s own Ocean City High School, Kelly accepted a basketball scholarship to Holy Family University, in Philadelphia. As a lifelong athlete, Kelly understands the importance of teamwork and overcoming adversity, something she hopes translates into her books.

Before writing page-turners, she taught first, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grade — like a dessert menu, she simply had to test them all out. But her favorite job is the one she’s now doing full time: writing. Kelly loves to craft whodunit mysteries, leading readers through various twists and turns filled with red-herrings, hidden clues, and more peculiar characters than a reality show.

Kelly lives in South Jersey with her handsome husband, energetic baby boy, two cookie-stealing dogs, and an awfully smart cat.
