How can you stop a god from destroying everything --- even if you are a god?

About the Book

*** This Book Won 16 Awards for Excellence ***

Meet God School’s latest graduate in this humorous award-winning fantasy for young adults.

One might think a god with the ability to create universes would have no problems, but that isn’t so.  Bernie comes from a broken home, lives on the poor side of town, and is plagued by a mischievous invisible cloud.

Against the odds, Bernie lands his dream job and a chance to build his own universe, only to find problems everywhere.  Mysterious asteroids, unexplained volcanoes, and shifting continents lead him to suspect sabotage.  But who could sabotage his universe?  Only another god could do that…

It’s god vs. god and good vs. evil.  If Bernie fails to outwit his vicious foe, it will cost him everything in this fascinating tale of an unusual young hero on a journey of self-discovery.

About the Author
Steve LeBel

Businessmen are serious people, right? Not always. Steve LeBel — hospital president, technology entrepreneur, algorithmic trader — is definitely not serious. Not when he writes.
Whimsy overcomes him at the word processor. Whimsy is at the core of his novel, The Universe Builders, which is told with LeBel’s unique balance of seriousness, humor, and whimsy.

Steve lives in Muskegon, Michigan with his wife and two cats. When not writing, he can be found cursing the stock market, providing tech support for his friends, or thinking up new plots for The Universe Builders.
