After a nasty fight with his girlfriend, Eric Kaufman got in his car and headed out for the open road, just to sort of cool off a bit and get his head together. Unfortunately for him, as he was driving down a desolate highway way out in the middle of nowhere, his engine died, his car slowed to a stop, and then they showed up. The last thing he ever expected when he woke up that morning was that he'd be abducted by aliens, but sure enough, that's exactly what happened.

After an unfortunate and very painful incident on their ship, he suddenly lost consciousness, and then woke up next to his car several hours later. He seemed all right at first, but in the days that followed he began to develop superhuman abilities, which would ultimately lead to him becoming something far more than he ever thought he could be.

Sadly, while becoming a superhero might seem cool to the average person, it does come with a laundry list of problems as well. For example, how do you keep your identity a secret? How do you balance being a publicly recognized superhero during the day with your vigilante activities at night, while still getting enough sleep to handle your day job? How do you dispose of all those cartel members you slaughtered, without anyone ever finding their remains? And most importantly, how do you get the taste of someone else's blood out of your mouth when you don't have any mouthwash handy?

These questions and more are all issues that Eric must face as he navigates the topsy-turvy world of being the world's first and only, real-life superhero.

About the Author

An avid reader since he first discovered the Hardy Boys books in the second grade, Duane L. Martin spent years being educated by some truly great authors.

In 2013, after years of dreaming about writing a novel of his own, he finally hit upon a story idea that would ultimately turn into the 22 book Unseen Things series. Currently, aside from the series, he's also published two standalone novels. Cindy's Story, which is a humorous private investigator novel, and a superhero story called The Accidental Hero, which is both humorous, and quite dark at times.
Aside from his writing, Duane is also a musician. He took his first bass guitar lesson in 1987 and has been playing bass ever since. He also plays some guitar, and a little keyboard and some percussion as well, with a particular focus on hand drums. As he's always been a great lover of music, he often has it playing quietly in the background while he writes.
Born and raised in Northern California, he would later move to Idaho, where he lives the quiet life of a relative hermit with his wife Sharon, and their two dogs.
