Born of the 16th day of the 8th month on the 1994th De’Quan Foster began writing Danger Kids when he was 11 on May 19th 2006. As a child foster was bullied and made fun of for his appearance and some of the interests he had. Some of those interests included the Star Wars Films, Various Marvel Comics and DC Comics as well as movies based on them, as well as the Harry Potter book series. He drew inspiration from these interests and soon began developing the Danger Kids. The idea of having kids with superpowers intrigued him. As time progressed he developed an entire universe with many characters, places and events far beyond what he ever imagined. His Mentor and Later Co Author A.S.Washington took interest in this universe and aided Foster in the development of his story. Foster often expressed how he wanted this story to inspire people and he also wanted the story behind the story to inspire people as well. Foster and Washington released the first novel in the Danger Kids Universe “The Twelve” on December 12th 2012. Foster wanted to release “The Twelve” first because he believed that the universe needed to be established so that when he released the main books in the Danger Kids Series it would allow for more in depth storytelling to be told. Foster plans on releasing the first novel in the Danger Kids Series in Spring 2013. He will be breaking boundaries as a young African-American Author to create a Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Action-Adventure series at the age of 18.
