What is Subtraction?

Subtraction, third in the mathemafiction series, is here, there, and everywhere good books are sold, or at least it soon will be, because all booksellers will surely want to know what happens to a subtracted life. Subtraction is here anyway--just click on the link.


But what is Subtraction? That's the question teacher Andrew Callaghan asks his middle-grade special needs class, and all is going well until an autistic girl subtracts herself from their company. Then memories surge, terrors drive him to action or inaction, and cats lead the way. Hence the cat on the cover.

What is Subtraction, the novel? It's a road trip story, as Andrew crosses the country in search of the missing child. And it's a human trip through Andrew's history, finding what drives him as he drives the car.

Can I tweet it? I'll try, and I'd love it if you'd copy or retweet my tweets. After all, Subtraction's just been added to my writing universe--I'd love you to add it to your reading universe as well!
