THE MIRANDA CONTRACT
Supervillain. Pop Star.

Sometimes the life we’re given isn’t the life we’d choose for ourselves.

For the past five years, Dan Galkin has been lying to everyone about just how ordinary he is. But Dan’s the grandson of The Mad Russian: one of the world’s most powerful, and insane, supervillains. And Dan has powers too. He’s a living battery, able to absorb and discharge electricity with his mind. Normally he keeps his powers hidden, but when the old man returns with an offer to make his grandson heir apparent, any chance at an ordinary life is blown apart.

Miranda Brody thought she wanted to be a pop star, but now she’s got the international profile and the entourage, she doesn’t recognize the Miranda she has become. After getting caught up in the cross-fire between Dan and his grandfather, Miranda realizes there’s more to life than being famous. Staying alive, for example, becomes a high priority. And not falling in love with the pizza boy comes a close second.

Labeled by society, trapped by expectation.
Dan and Miranda might actually be able to change everything.
As long as they don’t kill each other first.

About the Author
Ben Langdon lives and writes in Narrawong, which is at the end of the picturesque Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. He has been a comic book junky since his teenage years, and now has three inspiring heroes of his own: Jack, Eliza and Luca.

Ben writes neo-pulp, which is a fancy term for superhero fiction. He loves the fun and bizarre aspects of early pulp stories, but does so with an underlying respect for the genre. It’s kind of a post-modern treatment. Think beyond the spandex and the superhuman clashes above city streets.

An unconventional love story about babies, brothers… and the occasional secret bonk.

Family ties don’t come easy to Ella. When her widowed father Reggie marries divorcee Jude, she is inflicted with two step brothers to add to her current one.

She doesn’t want to be part of the mixed race ‘Brady Bunch’ and neither does one of the objectionable step brothers, Daniel. He constantly rubs her up the wrong way over the years, challenging how she acts towards her family.
But he’s no angel and is equally determined not to get involved in the family side of things hiding his own little secret.

But life starts to hand Ella some bitter blows, unexpected and heart breaking. She finds herself picking up the pieces for the loved ones around her, against her will and better judgement, while trying to hold fast to a family she never expected to have… or indeed ever wanted.

As the years unfold, there’s more emotional family conflict for her and everything she thought she hated, she starts to unexpectedly love… including the illusive and ever so slightly obnoxious Daniel.
But is he worth taking a risk on when they are relative strangers?

About the Author
Here’s the bottom line… I love to laugh, I love to drink and I love to eat.

I also love writing.

As a child I had stories going through my head. It took me a long time to realise I should write them down, therefore clearing my mind. Little did I know another one would pop up!

I wanted to be painter since I was a child. I was told, while being assessed at the end of my art foundation, I should go into drama or be a stand-up comedian. I’m short, so even if I did ‘stand up’ it’d be hard to see me and I realise that was their way of telling me I was rubbish at art.

I’ve worked in various jobs and I have been extremely lucky to do what I wanted to do… though I have a habit of changing my mind every so often.

If you want something, go for it. The only thing holding you back is you. You only have one life so don’t say ‘if only’ say ‘well at least I tried’.

Writing, like anything creative, is an exposure. Not everyone likes what you write, what you say or what you think… but some people do. That’s my focus. On the people who like what you write… what I write.
The stories are written in British English… and translates perfectly for all!

My time spent in Greece with my husband’s Greek family was the inspiration behind The Butterfly Storm. That and the beauty of the North Norfolk coast. The setting came first followed by the characters and then the bare bones of the story.

back2santafefrontcover2rgb96-smIrish-Mexican-American Sullivan Ortega returns to his empty childhood home in Santa Fe, New Mexico, to pay his respects to the last of his family, his sister Maggie, killed in a single-car crash. He’s driven to try to put his life back together, but he’s saddled with a terrible temper. He has few prospects or real friends, a taste for too much beer and not just a few run-ins with the local police. Most of the time, he just doesn’t feel comfortable in his own skin. While bringing his pain and anger under control, he finds a series of tormenting clues left on his doorstep. It seems Maggie’s death was no accident. Investigating the shattering details of her hidden sexuality and tangled connections in the world of fine art, antiques and the scramble for status, Sullivan struggles with long avoided questions. He uncovers things about his family that have been buried for many years. In a turn of luck, he discovers allies he didn’t know he had, including a girl he let down hard, a local Police Sergeant and a studded, lesbian barrista. It’s a rugged journey, and it may not lead him to a peaceful conclusion, but it is one he’s prepared to endure alone if he has to.

Having spent many years in the world of trading American Indian arts and retailing Fine Arts, I wanted to tell a story of something of the crazy world that lies just below the carefully studied, tourism approved Land of Enchantment. Santa Fe was recently voted the best small city in the USA and I agree in spades, but maybe not for the same reasons as those who voted. If you’ve ever wondered where you might really fit in, and had moments where even home with family all around seems oddly surreal, you’ll be completely familiar with Sullivan Ortega!
