I was born a long time ago, but to be honest it doesn't feel that long. From an early age, I was a reader. I read everything, but mostly I focused on Fantasy Fiction. There were plenty of books on this topic, and I was rarely without a book.
As I became older, I found other genres, or at least sub-genres. At this time I found myself in modern fantasy books and collecting a ton of comic books. This was that time frame that super heroes were starting to hit the big and little screens.
Soon after this, I found a book called "Soon I Will Be Invincible". This was a comic book in novel format. I started to find other books soon. I put two and three together and came up with five. Modern fantasy was very super heroic, and the comic books I was reading fit in as well.
Well, here I am. I have written a book and have it up here on Smashwords.
Super Shorts Volume 2 is a collection of 13 quick-to-read stories that will peel back the mask on villains and heroes alike.

And how did robots get mixed up in any of this? What the Guardian uncovers only leads to more questions.
Not every EMT is created equal. Some have superpowers. Those that do fly, run, and grow to enormous sizes. Travel with each EMT as they answer calls of heroes in distress. They work in unusual situations and deal with odd people. And they do this all while dealing with super-powered villains and saving lives.
No blaring lights or speeding ambulances. They don’t carry large packs of medical supplies. But they do save lives of super heroes.
Each EMT has a story to tell. Sometimes they are called to save a hero on the brink of death. Other times they arrive on the scene and have to rescue the hero.
What does a henchman do to change jobs? How does a universal translator deal with hand-to-hand combat? Where do the super powered get their uniforms cleaned?
