He won the inaugural Text Prize for Young Adult and Children's Writing for The Billionaire's Curse, the first book in the acclaimed Billionaire series. It was soon followed by The Emerald Casket, The Mask of Destiny, The Crystal Code, The House of Puzzles, and, finally, The Curiosity Machine, which brings the boy billionaire's thrilling adventures to a satisfying close.
