Random Inspiration : 

At eleven-years-old, when I didn’t agree with something, or if somebody was being cruel, my typical was response was, “Get a life.”

Nine times out of ten, somebody would respond, “Get a top lip.”

Yes, I was--and still am--a thin-lipped girl. This insult gave me a complex, so much in fact that at the age of twenty-eight I tried my hand at a collagen injection to puff out my upper lip. Did it work? No. All I was left with was a bruised mouth. I looked ridiculous. What I learned from this experiment is that we all need to be happy with who and what we are. And that self-positivity starts at a young age.

Picking on people for their physical attributes is the cruelest form of bullying and it has to stop. We all have our flaws. We all have our positive traits. This theme is very prevalent in King of the Mutants. I don’t preach, or bash this lesson in. I just want kids to understand that they are unique and that there is no such thing as being ‘normal.’

Of course, this doesn’t mean we have to like everybody we meet, but we can respect the positive aspects about them. 

Maverick is a severely mutated kid with a heart of gold. It’s my hope kids and adults will love him. 


Samantha Vérant is a travel addict, a self-professed oenophile, and a determined, if occasionally unconventional, French chef. Over the years, she’s visited many different countries, lived in many places, and worked many jobs— always on the search for the one thing that truly excited her. Then, one day, she found everything she’s been looking for: a passion for the written word and true love. Writing not only enabled her to open her heart, it led her to southwestern France, where she’s now married to a sexy French rocket scientist she met over twenty years ago, a stepmom to two incredible kids, and the adoptive mother to one ridiculously expensive Bengal cat. When she’s not trekking from Provence to the Pyrénées, tasting wine in American-sized glasses, or embracing her inner Julia Child while deliberating what constitutes the perfect boeuf bourguignon, Samantha is making her best effort to relearn those dreaded conjugations.
