Guest Post:

The idea of a superhero book came from one of my sons. He is an author and was thinking about penning a book similar to what he loves, Marvel comics. My younger son suggested he make the characters younger and create a superhero high school. They soon lost interest.

What can I say, cryptozoology called and they moved on. I mulled the idea over. It was not in my comfort zone. I had never written a full-length novel. I asked if they minded if I took the characters and Grady Whill was born.  I loved Grady from the very first chapter. He reminded me of my brothers, my sons, and myself at the vulnerable age of 14, when it feels that nothing is going right in your life. I wrote the book in the first person, which was a first for me. I’ve never done that, and something changed when I wrote that book. I saw the world through Grady's eyes. His hurts became mine. His anxiety, kindness, and even that dart of jealousy when he learns Aarush had made the school, reflected what I have experienced in my life over the years.
