My name is Scott Rothra. Thank you for reading my first book. I hope that it was as enjoyable to read as it was to write.
As a native of Arizona, I've spent my life roaming the Southwest and its wide open spaces. Folks here are a fiercely independent bunch. Skills such as constructing a weekend cabin out of pallet wood, to building a go-cart out a hospital bed are common place. And camping, shooting, hunting, fishing, boating, racing, dancing, and singing are rights of passage for every kid. But the most honored skill is the ability to craft a good story.
Next to a campfire is the perfect place for telling tale. I remember as a child, sitting in hunting camp listening to my father and uncles spin yarns of their childhood and share adventures of the past. I’m not sure if it was the backdrop of the vast Arizona skies or black and endless mountain woods, but the stories always seemed to get more exciting with every telling. The fish were always bigger, the shots longer, the race faster, the beer more plentiful, and the girls more beautiful with each telling of the taie.
And so, my superheroes were born. Not in comic books or movie theaters, but in the adventures of my own family. I cheerfully extended these inspirational stories to my kids and gladly added adventures, fact and fictitious, of my own.
That is what led me to writing this book. I turned a wild campfire tale into a Christmas present. It was great fun. And I had to promise more adventures to come.
Again, I hope that you enjoyed this first of, what I hope, are many campfire tales to come. I’m also sure that you’ll agree, while superheroes may seem bigger than life, they pale in comparison to the characters that inspire them.
“To my family, you’ll always be my heroes…”

Ken and Derek are brothers and an integral part of PEER services - a family of Private Security Contractors. They took the job of chasing the sociopathic killer, Eugene Melville, as an oppurtunity for adventure. Little did they know, the Federal Judge that hired them never expected them to succeed. They were being played for bait.
