I’m so excited to let you all know that my second book with Ave Maria Press, Super Girls and Halos: My Companions on the Quest for Truth, Justice, and Heroic Virtue, is available for pre-order! Get yours early!

Now that the commercial is over, I want to gush over the fun of revealing the cover to you, plus, this is really a fun book that I started writing over 30 years ago, so it’s very cool for me to see it come to fruition.

My love for science fiction, comics, and fantasy stories started when I was a little kid, and by the time I was in college and majoring in literature, I was secretly writing what we know today as fan-fiction.

I got over the fan-fiction part when I started writing my own stories, but I still felt drawn to the fictional heroines I loved as a child and young adult. Recent reboots of Star Trek, new episodes of Star Wars, and film adaptations of books such as Hunger Games, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to find Them from Harry Potter grabbed my attention again as an adultAdd to that the Marvel and DC Comics universes brought to the big screen, especially the Wonder Woman film coming this summer, and I turn 12 all over again.

I’m a bit more discerning about my heroes and heroines today, but noticed that these strong female characters resonate with me because they exhibit human virtue. I wondered what would happen in real life if I adopted some of these traits. Could I live a heroic life?

What if I cooperated with God’s plan for me? Could I live a holy life? A life of heroic virtue?

I started to read about the saints, and noticed that there were many similarities. And significant differences. The saints operated with God’s grace. It made all the difference in their lives, and the lives of the people they touched.

If you like the strong women being portrayed on the big screen today, I invite you order a copy of Super Girls and Halos and read about those fun characters, and a little bit about some extraordinary real women who took heroism to holy heights.
