Books

Mike Klaassen's first two books, The Brute and Cracks, were action-adventure novels influenced by his experience as a Kansas farm boy and as a scoutmaster. A visit to the site of the Battle of New Orleans inspired Mike to write Backlash: A War of 1812 Novel, featuring five young Americans in the fight of their life. Each of Mike's three novels has been awarded a B.R.A.G. Medallion. 

Ongoing research encouraged Mike to write books about the craft of writing fiction. His use of folktales as examples led him to create Klaassen's Classic Folktales, a collection of ancient stories retold as novellas.
