Author launches novel series featuring female superhero
‘The Flying Woman’ tackles secret identities, responsibility, and fear of failure
Nov. 28, 2018 – How do you act like the perfect person when you know full well you’re nowhere near perfect? That’s the question at the core of “The Flying Woman,” a new superhero novel by Daniel Sherrier.
In “The Flying Woman,” the impossible has become reality. A masked man possesses extraordinary powers, and he’s using those fantastic abilities to fight crime and pursue justice. Meanwhile, Miranda Thomas expects to fail at the only thing she ever wanted to do: become a famous star of the stage and screen.
One night, Miranda encounters a woman who’s more than human. But this powerful woman is dying, fatally wounded by an unknown assailant. Miranda’s next decision propels her life in a new direction—and nothing can prepare her for how she, and the world, will change.
“While superheroes dominate the film, television, and comic book landscapes, the genre has made less of a dent in prose fiction,” Sherrier said. “I took that as a challenge—how to adapt a genre created for visual mediums into a novel?”
He found the answer in one of the oldest staples of the genre—the secret identity.
“A secret identity raises interesting questions about what’s beneath the polished, heroic exterior,” Sherrier said. “In ‘The Flying Woman,’ Miranda needs to figure out how to grow into her new superhero role when she feels totally unqualified. Having super-powers is wonderful, but the responsibility is terrifying.”
“The Flying Woman” is published through Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing and is available in paperback and ebook formats. It is the first book of a planned series.
