Grady Whill and the Templeton Codex by Carole P. Roman

Book Description:

Templeton Academy- the superhero high school is finally open! The prestigious institution is recruiting the best of the best to enroll in its student body. The school is as mysterious as it is exclusive.

Grady Whill thinks there is nothing special about him to make the grade. However, his best friend, Aarush Patel has been selected and thinks Grady has the right stuff. Even school bully Elwood Bledsoe is attending.

If Grady is fortunate enough to be picked, his guardian has forbidden him to attend. Will a family secret prevent Grady from becoming the superhero he was destined to be?
Wow! From the very first page the story was full of action. The story begins with a prolog that gets you excited to read the rest of the book. I loved the dialog between the characters as it flowed like a real conversation. The story was the second thing I noticed about the book, the cover being the first. This cover is bright and gives the reader an excellent idea of what to expect. If you are a fan of superhero books, you will love this book!
Author Interview:
How long have you been writing?  
I began writing in 2011 with my first book Captain No Beard An Imaginary Tale of a pirate's Life.

What genre do you write and why? 

I write all genres. I write kid's fiction and nonfiction as Carole P. Roman and adult fiction (horror and paranormal romance) as Brit Lunden


Do you ever get writer’s block? What helps you overcome it?

I either feel like writing or not. When I don't, I will sit at the keyboard and just write. I'm always surprised at what I produce, even though I wasn't in the mood.

Where do you get inspiration for your stories?

Every day I meet with my sons, and we kick around ideas for storylines. We serve as each other's beta readers as well as inspirations.  Writing Grady brought back the smell of gym locker, sweaty socks, and everything else associated with being the mom of teenage boys.


What advice would you give budding writers?  

Set realistic expectations. Don't quit your day job and realize that your book is not for everyone. 


What is your next project? 

I am working on three picture books. Grady is calling me back to the keyboard. I've written the first chapter, but marketing and promotion have kept me too busy to concentrate.
