Because I LOVE comics!
Because less than a year ago my oldest daughter (10) came home, threw her school bag down and screamed "ARGH! SCHOOL IS LIKE A PRISON!" And the ideas haven't stopped coming.
Because as a father of two wonderful girls there's nothing I want more than to create a compelling story they can't put down. I want to invite readers into an extraordinary world where I entertain, educate and inspire them through a diverse cast of characters that reflect the world we all live in. But with a big twist of optimism.
Because at the end of the day, I love to tell stories. And I would REALLY love to tell this one.
