As promised, here’s the dark and brooding cover for Behind The Mask, my story from the Pride Publishing anthology, I Need A Hero.
Here’s the blurb for the story, to give you a flavour of what to expect:
Twenty years ago, superheroes were outlawed by the mayor of Mokum City. Christopher Chase has grown up knowing that he has all the strength and speed of Sprint, his superhero father, who died attempting to save the mayor’s niece from being kidnapped. But, unlike his father, he is unable to fulfil his destiny and become a masked crimefighter. Even Christopher’s boyfriend, bar owner Johnny Brennan, doesn’t know Christopher’s true identity.
A chance encounter with a purse snatcher in the city cemetery gives Christopher a taste of what it’s like to use his powers for good. And when Johnny becomes caught up in a hostage situation, Christopher can no longer stand by. Even if it means losing his own life, he must pull on the costume of Sprint to save the man he loves.
And if you want to know more, I’ll be sharing an extract from the story and filling in a little of the background behind it nearer the time – so watch this space!
