K.N. Smith has published her debut novel, “The Urban Boys: Discovery of the Five Senses”.  It’s an action-adventure story about five teens who are mysteriously exposed to a foreign energy source that gives them extremely heightened senses, gifts that forever change the world.  The story chronicles their interrelations and later exposes the testing of their deep bonds, and introduces the reader to an array of supporting characters who alter the boys’ lives forever. 

“ ‘The Urban Boys’ was written with the young adult reader in mind,” Smith said via email, “but is appropriate for adults, too!  It’s already starting to get great reviews.” 

Smith is an ardent supporter of youth and family literacy programs across the globe.  “My hope is that ‘The Urban Boys’ will spark imagination in a wide variety of readers while elevating global literacy efforts,” Smith said.  “It’s important that we have diverse families of readers for generations to come.”

Available in softcover at retail and all e-book formats, “The Urban Boys” is the first in a series, with the second book expected in Spring 2016.  For more information, visit
