Why start my publishing journey by writing a story for Christian children?
The simple answer to this question would be: my faith, my son, and the angels I serve in my Sunday School class are the reasons I wrote Philo and the SuperHolies. But there is another reason as well.
I have been writing since before I can remember. Writing occurs despite me; it is independent of my will. And so, when I became a mother and a certain challenge presented itself, I turned to writing.
My son, who is extraordinary in my eyes, has the same ordinary love for superheroes as the average youngster his age. And despite my best efforts, Bible stories could not compete, night after night, with the allure of Spider-Man or Captain America. We would read Moses one night and he would ask for Lightning McQueen the following night.
I kept thinking, If only he could realize that Christians have superpowers. Intangible ones, but real. Invisible but monumental, capable of moving mountains and parting seas. And that is how The SuperHolies began to take form in my mind.
I re-imagined the powers given by the Holy Spirit, commonly known as the “Fruit of the Holy Spirit” as Superpowers. I could now read my son a bedtime story that would spark his interest (superheroes) and yet teach him the fundamentals of our Faith.
Writing is a gift that our Lord has given me
my first book series is my offering, my gift to Him.
