You remember Toby – the tough gangster with the tattoo of a black cat leaping up his biceps. Estelle met him over the summer and heard his voice when she was pinned in a weird cylinder in the Veterinary Clinic. Well, now she’s seen him at her university.

(Some creative punctuation to fit.)
Diane had her eyes glommed onto Toby and Estelle guessed he would spot her striking red hair. Oh well, Estelle was used to being overshadowed by her glamorous friend.
When he was ten feet away, Toby slowed; his dark gaze fixed on Estelle and his sullen mouth quirked into a lop-sided grin. He drawled, “Estelle; good to see you, babe. Thought I’d bump into you on campus sometime.”
Estelle said, “Hi Toby! Didn’t expect to see you here.” She flushed bright pink, recalling when she had last heard his distinctive voice at the weird Veterinary Clinic. Had he seen her lying naked in that transparent cylinder? His smile broadened as if he guessed her thoughts.
Teen superhero, Starrella, and her flying horse tackle villains in the skies of Atalanta.
The quiet summer before her freshman year turns frighteningly weird after Estelle Wright trespasses onto an Army base. Blown into the air and knocked unconscious, she wakes with a nascent superpower. Not to mention a winged horse with a snarky attitude and a mind of her own.
Back home in Atalanta, a serial killer is targeting the students at Goldman University. Before long she must juggle college classes with sneaking out of the house after dark to battle alien monsters. Estelle’s life is in danger, but who can she trust: handsome Captain Copper from military intelligence, or hunky Toby, the tough gangster with a motorbike? Both men have secret agendas, but falling in love is not in their plans.
Young adult superheroes, quirky animal sidekicks, and a dash of romance enliven this thrilling adventure. Book 1 of the Secret Supers.
