Why did I write Philo and SuperHolies?

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 why I wrote Philo and the SuperHolies. But there is another reason as well.


You see, I have been writing since before I can remember. Writing occurs in spite of 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 bestowed by the Holy Spirit, commonly known as the“Fruits 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.

In Christ,

After graduating with a Major in Journalism, Mireille’s career path took an unexpected turn away from her beloved pen and paper. It took an equally unexpected turn of events for Mireille to start writing again.After spending many hours (too many!) watching super hero cartoons with her son, she realized that most Christian children are unaware of their superpowers!She set about creating the SuperHolies: the Fruits of the Holy Spirit re-imagined as superpowers to grab the children’s attention and teach them about their faith and its glory.
