The Omega Gators is a story about two alligator brothers who suddenly are gifted with super powers and are responsible for the protection of Earth. Not only do they have to navigate through the complexities of their abilities, but they also need to deal with their own insecurities. I wanted to tell a "coming of age-super hero story" that was also funny with these characters, based on some personal experiences that I had about self-doubt and share them in a way that is relatable with kids growing up today. I wanted to create a world that empowers anyone who reads this book.
