Born in 1970, I've been interested in fantasy and science fiction since perhaps the age of 10. I believe my love of medieval knights came about when my father built a wooden shield and sword for me to use in elementary school for some event.
Through my school years I read hundreds (or thousands? - it's hard to recall at this point) of fantasy and science fiction novels. Comic books and super heroes came a bit later, although I recall seeing the Christopher Reeve Superman movies at a very young age (and loving them). Since my later teens I believe I've watched nearly every major fantasy, science fiction, and super-hero movie that has come out.
I still love reading fantasy and science fiction, although I wish there were more novels based on superheroes. This is something that drove me to create my own supers universe and heroes in written form. I love supers, but I've always wanted more character depth than a comic book can provide. (Not to mention the immense length of time it takes for a comic series to do a story is just plain too long to me.)
Writing is a hobby for me, I'm a full-time computer programmer and systems administrator for a small company. Fortunately the skills I've learned allow me to work with 3D programs to render the characters (and covers) for my books. My hope is to put out a novel or two a year, time allowing. At this point I'd like to grow the H.E.R.O. Universe with more novels, as well as start a fantasy series at some point.

Fun from start to finish!
Superheroes are one of my favorite genres, I love reading about them in any form however, the market is kind of over saturated. I was hesitant to even begin this series, but those fears were quickly put to rest as this series is excellent!
Starting with a bang, the story grows in complex ways that kept me reading way past my bedtime. I love how their super powers bring the heroes together, their bond growing stronger as they face their trials together. As others have pointed out there is some romance in here, which may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I enjoyed it. I can't wait to pick up the next and see where this goes!
