What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My daughter was my inspiration for this series. The character Hannah aka Phenom, the leader of the team, resembles her. My original idea was to have the books done just for her, but as other parents found about it, they wanted copies for their little one(s) as well.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
As a parent, I desire to see not just my child but all children grow up believing that they are powerful and full of potential. So, it dawned on my why not author a book where the kids are the superheroes? During their playtime, the children explore their own potential and work to overcome challenges together. Through the Fearless Five, they are not confined to their current situations. For example, Joshua is overweight, but Blaze has superhuman speed and agility. The twins Chai and Daia are smaller for their ages, but they are able to show incredible physical strength (Daia as Tank) or mastery of their environment (Chai as Element). Nathan has difficulty, at times, with staying on task, but as Bender, he is able to focus his mind in tremendous ways. Hannah, as Phenom, shows how a young lady can be intelligent and challenge societal norms of what “leaders” should be. At the core of each episode is that the team must overcome the initial self-defeating views they have of their potential while battling the Swarm. In the end, they come to discover their true potential, which sets them on a path to success.
“Pay attention!” demands Dr. Dome. “We’re re-focusing our efforts. My original plan cannot work until the Fearless Five are out of the way. Each of you battled them and lost. Now, I’m stepping in. I have good information that they are headed to the house of that chubby speedster. This is what we’re going to do…”
Joshua’s mom says, “This place is a mess. You are cleaning this room today!”
“But Mom, I just called my friends to come over and play. I’ll clean it later. I promise!”
“Oh no, you won’t,” she says with a displeasing look. “Your friends can wait until you’re done! Now, get to work!”
A little later…
“What do you need us to do, sir?” Heracane asks.
Dr. Dome replies sarcastically, “Just stay out of my way!”
After a few minutes…
Joshua says, “Thanks for helping, guys. This is the last thing. Hannah, would you take this trail mix back to the kitchen?”
“Sure, I’ll meet you all in the backyard.”
Meanwhile…Dr. Dome and the Swarm wait to make their move.
After making his move to kidnap Phenom, Dr. Dome shouts at the Swarm, “You all are getting on my nerves!” I can’t drive straight with all the tremors, buzzing and singing! You all take different routes back to the lair.”
The rest of his team say, “Sorry, sir. Yes, sir.”
After checking all over, Joshua rushes back to his friends and shouts, “Something is wrong, guys! Hannah and the trail mix are nowhere to be found. I think the Swarm is up to something.” As the team whirls into action, Daia shouts, “Fearless Five! Power up!”
Chai says nervously, “Don’t you mean the Fearless Four?”
“Whether we are all here or not, we are always the Fearless Five team,” replies Daia.
Nathan adds confidently, “Good point!. We will definitely figure this out… as a team.”
