About the author:
I was born and raised in Mansfield, England live there today. I started writing seriously in 2009, steampunk novel called Steam Queen which was published in 2010. Around the same time I wrote a children's fantasy novel called On Angels Wings which I also had published. Both books have received great reviews and Steam Queen was www.sfbook.com's book of the month for January 2011.
I have always been a fan of superheroes. The comic books, superhero novels, superhero movies and superhero video games; I love them all so it was no surprise really when I decided to try and write a superhero novel too! The end result was True Hero? A novel which World Castle Publishing have agreed to publish.
Writing True Hero? Was partially inspired by my love of internet forum based RPG websites. With them you sort of pick a character from whatever the site is based on and role-play as them. Many of the sites which I joined were X-Men/Marvel comics based which I think was pretty useful in developing my skills at writing the superhero genre.
At the moment I am currently in full time education studying Zoo Biology at Nottingham Trent University. I write in my spare time and would love to continue writing well past my education and when I enter the good old working world.
Most of my writing is fantasy based but I have wrote one or two horror short stories, one of which has been selected to appear in an upcoming anthology so maybe in the future I might write a full length horror novel too ;)

As the most popular superhero in the world, Stella Stargirl has it all; fame, fortune, legions of adoring fans, a place on the world's best superhero team and even a number 1 hit single to her name.
Stella, however, has a secret that even she doesn't know. She is a fraud. An average-powered hero who stood on the shoulders of giants and got all the glory whilst her more powerful teammates did all the work.
When a new supervillain appears on the scene, one who manages to de-power the world's heroes, Stella decides it is time to put aside her self-doubts and show the world that fraud or not, she can be a true hero.
