I had a brainwave today when thinking of a new superhero story. I am thinking of making something that is a combination between X-Men, Hunger Games, and Battle Royale. Imagine a gladiatorial battle for survival between more than three dozen superhumans whose powers just manifested and only a select few are allowed to make it out alive. These gladiators will not have swords, spears, or shields. Instead, the only weapon they will have will be whatever powers manifested for them. I will be doing a lot of brainstorming on what powers these three dozen superhumans will possess. I believe this story is going to show a lot of action and psychological conflict. What do you think?
Guess what? Today, I had an interview at a radio show! Check it out!

For my new superhero series, I am envisioning it taking place in a dystopian world. I have been monitoring the news very frequently lately and I see the makings of a real-life dystopia. Global warming, terrorism, the slow death of democracy, failing healthcare, the rise of fascist factions, hatred and racism aplenty, the threat of a third World War. Due to all of these factors, I will be creating this dystopia based on the possibility of all these calamities reaching their zenith. Like what if superhumans are the result of radiation from nuclear war or human experimentation in a failed attempt to make living weapons. Now imagine fascism being the only form of government this world knows where cyborg super soldiers maintain absolute order. With global warming, I can imagine the ice caps gone and sea levels rising to the point in which only one continent-sized piece of land remains. Due to nuclear war, the environment would be putrid and toxic beyond measure. Overall, I am thinking of creating a hellish world where these new superheroes would fight to survive and overthrow the corrupt regime that rules what’s left of their world.
I started sharing my fantasy series with some of my beta readers and they said that my writing has greatly improved over time. I began my career as an author with a self taught writing style and trouble with tenses. Now, thanks to my creative writing classes in college and my writers group meetings I have grown and evolved as an author. With my fantasy series, I am feeling a lot more confident as a writer and look forward to sharing it with all of you when the time comes.
I had another author interview that is also an author spotlight that will feature me and my books for the whole month!
