The first volume in THE ADVENTURES OF PEABODY RICH series will be MEET PEABODY RICH.

Most people would love being eidetic, but not Peabody Rich. For him, remembering everything he has ever seen is a source of constant frustration, a royal pain in the butt. UNTIL, his mentor and friend is attacked and left for dead. Peabody is devastated, but determined to find out what happened to his friend. Enlisting the help of twins, Rubye and Rudee Aimes, he must use his photographic memory to unravel the mystery behind the attack.  With the teens’ parents out of the country on business and their sitter mistakenly arrested and in jail for attempted murder, Peabody and the twins must avoid the police finding out they are on their own, outsmart school and museum officials, and outrun thugs in a high speed chase through Washington, D.C. to get to the bottom of what’s been going on at Wartley University.

“Pro Se is extremely excited,” says Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “to be adding Peabody Rich to its cast of characters and Donna Smith to its stellar list of creators. MEET PEABODY RICH encapsulates everything we want a YoungPulp! Book to have. Smart young protagonists, action, adventure, a solid fast moving plot, and characters that stay with the reader after the last page is turned.”
