Suddenly given the powers of an ancient Sumerian goddess, Sheena Gardner, a young Wisconsin game warden, must learn to use them properly before the superpowered villain who covets those powers kills her or her husband. But this sudden transformation out of the depths of time poses changes not just to Sheena's abilities, but also to her relationship with her husband, her mutant pop-star friend, and everyone else she knows. In order to adapt, she must stretch and test her own limits while her husband, Eric, has to learn to deal with a very different dynamic of risk, responsibility, and power in their relationship. In the process, Sheena learns of the real reason she was given the powers and has to discover and foil a plot not just against her, but against civilization itself.

Written in the spirit of the City of Heroes MMORPG, The Secret World Chronicles, Arrow, The Flash, The Avengers, Iron Man, and many other works of comic book-based heroic science fiction.

About the Author

Steve started by writing fan fiction for Watership Down at the age of 8, and has gone on from there with fantasy and science fiction being his major passions. Early influences ranged from Robert Heinlein, Anne McCaffrey, and Isaac Asimov to the Minneapolis "Scribblies" writers' group (Steven Brust, Emma Bull, Will Shetterly, Pat Wrede, and others). Steve often takes fantasy or science fiction RPGs or MMORPGs as creative inspiration for his stories, and turns them on their sides with "What if...?" questions for those game environments. "A Wing and a Prayer" is his first published novel-length work.
