Looking out to see the world. I look out and see the world as my child will one day see it. It is a world of possibilities of unknown adventures and trials, but as I look at my Childs future, I see something is missing. A hero's of her own Culture. My child is half American half Filipino. I look at the images of similar children and see them dressing up like Japanese anime heroes or American movie or comic heroes, and I ask myself, where are the heroes for my daughter? Where is her hero? I know the
has its own heroes, but they are not known in the same way as other countries. Look at your children's Facebook pages and see what they call heroes. I am an American married to a wonderful Filipina, and I have come to love the culture she is from, and I want my child to have a hero that represents her culture. This is not a complaint without an answer. This is a prelude to my answer. I have created a hero for my daughter. A hero that represents her culture, and I want it to be internationally known. I spent a great deal of time and effort in crafting this epic tale that covers 5000 years in 9 books about a Filipino's family sacrifice in saving the world. With not just powers and weapons, but with what makes Filipino's great. The love of Family and friends. Sacrifice to help another by putting the needs of the many before the needs of him or herself. On Philippines November eleven 2011. ( 11/11/11) My book will be finally published and offered on Amazon in paperback, as well as several other sites. The Book is the first of 9 books and has the magnificent art of the great Filipino artist, Rio Villegas of the Cebu Sun Star through out the entire book series.
The Book is called The Ocoda Chronicles Book 1 Paladin.
