I thought it was time to develop a different kind of hero children can relate to.
Too many existing heroes have a common background- an adult mourning the death of a relative. This horrific experience laid the path of the said person to become a superhero. Batman, Spiderman, and many others became heroes due to losing a relative from an act of crime.
I thought it would be hilarious to create a child who uses a malfunctioning gadget suit to protect his accident prone parents who were first responders. The defected gadgets is an addition to the humor. But Jeff is not a quitter. The themes of persistence and determination to attain goals is apparent. Right vs. Wrong. Good vs. Evil. All that are elements in this tight action-pack book with great illustrations by my brother Aaron Harris.
10 year-old Jeffrey Morgan is on a never-ending conquest to save his mother, a police officer, and his father, a firefighter from the acts of tyrants looking to compromise the quality of life in Springdale. Thus, Jeff's secret intervention makes him a protecter of the city too (Of course he eventually realizes that in the chapter-book).
