More About R. A. Montgomery, V. Pornkerd, S. Yaweera & J. Donploypetch
Raymond A. Montgomery is the founder of the Choose Your Own Adventure interactive children's book series. Montgomery synthesized all of his varied educational and game theory work in the Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA) series, first published by Bantam Books in 1979. The series grew into a publishing phenomenon with over 180 titles and 250 million copies published worldwide in over 35 languages. The books were unique in that they appealed equally to girls and boys, to reluctant readers and avid ones. The CYOA series has been used in classrooms from early elementary school to college. At the advent of the Internet age, the series was used frequently in curricula focused on explaining the interactivity of the World Wide Web to young children. After a successful stint in the mid-to-late-90's designing games for CD-ROM, Montgomery decided to re-launch the CYOA series based on the interest he was getting from former fans. Montgomery and partners Shannon Gilligan and Gordon Troy, Esq. have turned their full attentions to Choose Your Own Adventure since Fall 2004. The series is being reissued through Chooseco LLC, in Waitsfield, Vermont. R.A. MONTGOMERY is an avid outdoorsman. He has hiked in the Himalayas, climbed mountains in Europe, scuba-dived in Central America, and sailed in Franco-phone Africa .He has lived in France, travels frequently to Asia, and calls Vermont home. His interests include macroeconomics, geo-politics, mythology, history, mystery novels, and music. He has two grown sons, a daughter-in-law, and two granddaughters.
R. A. Montgomery currently resides in Warren, in the state of Vermont.

Mysterious and Interesting Jan 8, 2007
I would reccomend this entire series, and especially this book. The cover really jumped out at me. Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. Any young reader would enjoy this book. You travel back to the time of the Mayans to find your friend Tom. You end up with a whole lot more on your hands than just your friend's disappearance. You run into aliens, Mayans, and a whole bunch of adventure. You might end up in jail, you might find your friend Tom, or you could even travel to outer space. This book won't leave you disappointed. Each turn of the page and decision adds a new level to the mystery. You have to deal with the tradition of human sacrifice with the Mayans, as well as dangerous strangers. Watch out and you just might make it out alive.
