Atticus Everheart, Fifth Grade Tutor and Monster Hunter?

by C.L. Colyer


GENRE:  Middle Grade Action Adventure



Nothing frightens Atticus Everheart more than monsters, thanks to his older brothers, who often threaten to feed him to the beastly creatures.

Fearing that’s what they will do if he doesn’t replace the book he accidentally ruined, he takes a job tutoring a boy in his neighborhood.

Although nervous about the job, Atticus soon discovers there’s a lot more in store for him than teaching. Never in a trillion years would he have imagined he’d be hiding from monsters, working with ghosts, or searching for werewolves and witches. He’s not brave, and he has no plans to change.

Until he’s forced to.



“These came for you,” said Abigail, the oldest of his younger sisters. At eight, she was already smarter than him in many ways. She turned the envelope upside down over his bed. A pair of prescription, steampunk- inspired goggles tumbled out. Still ignoring Atticus’s prior demand, she settled on the window seat.

“I thought they’d never get here!” His previous statement forgotten, Atticus sat up and took off his glasses. He then slipped the leather strap of the goggles over his head and pulled to tighten them to a perfect fit. He raised his chin, wise and prepared, able to spot danger in a single glance.

“How do I look?”

“Like a weirdo.” Abigail pulled her honey-brown hair into a high ponytail. “Or a praying mantis.”

He should have known she wouldn’t recognize functional accessories if they stared her in the face.

“Did you have to get green frames?” she asked.

“I like green.”

“I think you look smart,” said Evie, the youngest of the Everheart children. She was a miniature version of Atticus, from her curly brown hair, round cheeks, and scrawny arms, right down to her bulbous big toes and curious nature. “Why are there round thingies sticking out from the side?”

“Those are monocles.” Abigail opened the newspaper to the comic section. “They magnify things.”

“These aren’t ordinary monocles,” said Atticus. “I can’t believe you think I’d want goggles if they didn’t do something spectacular. I’ll have you know these are the most advanced pair of monster-seeing goggles available, able to cut through the mundane to reveal beasts and demons, ghosts, and goblins.” At least, that’s what the ad had said. Atticus flipped down the crimson lens. “This one’s for flesh-eating monsters.”

“Oh, they’re way cool!” Evie inched closer and asked, “Do you see any?”

“Yes!” Atticus lunged forward and grabbed her, tickling her waist.



Describe Your Book Cover and How It Came About?

Can I begin with how cute this cover turned out? I can say this because all the credit goes to my talented cover artist Diana Carlile. She does such a great job of incorporating tiny details that add the perfect finishing touches. She never fails to exceed my expectations.

I got to provide some input. Like all my books, I filled out a cover art form, noting the tone of the book and my vision for the cover.

Here are the notes I gave to Diana:

I think a cartoon cover would work nicely. Something kids 8-12 would like. For the title, I always envisioned it to read “Atticus Everheart, Fifth Grade Tutor” in one font and then “and Monster Hunter” in a different font as if it was penciled in by a kid.

We might see the inside of a manor near a staircase. On the wall could be old pictures of people who look like Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster, Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. (Drago’s family members are the monsters from the old movies.)

If we see Atticus, we might see the back of him. He rides his skateboard to the house each morning and never goes anywhere without his backpack. Or, Atticus could be facing the reader with a puzzled expression like he can’t believe he’s hunting monsters.

You can see why I’m delighted with the cover. Diana included everything in a fun and adorable way that is perfect for middle-grade readers.

Thank you, Fabulous and Brunette for having me on your blog!



C.L. Colyer found her love for writing in first grade when her class was sent to the library and asked to find a book for their first book report. While she doesn’t still have this book report, she’s very proud to say she got an A on it. Her favorite thing about the book was that it had no words. That’s right, not one! That gave her the freedom to interpret the pictures in any way she wanted and write her own story.

This sparked her love for writing essays. It wasn’t until she was an adult that she sat down and penned her first novel. This story has a special place in her heart because it’s the story that helped her discover her passion for writing. She has since written several books, many of which may never see the light of day, but all of which helped her learn to combine her passion for writing with her fascination with all things mythical.  You’ll find examples of this in her novels.
