who is mr. powers?

Single dad. Entrepreneur. Role Model. Upstanding Citizen. Shawn Powers, a mild-mannered father of two, lives a life many would admire. However, due to a freak accident, he acquired a special set of skills. He uses these skills to mangle monsters under the bed, capture creatures in the closet, and beat up bullies on the block as Mr. Powers! Join him on the journey to rid the world of evil…all while his kids are sound asleep, unaware he has super Powers! Each day is an adventure, with battles between good versus evil at nightfall, all the while teaching the readers valuable life lessons along the way.

Welcome to “The Electrifying Adventures of Mr.Powers”!



Reading to my kids, I notice there aren’t enough books where the characters look and speak like us. I want to give the kids something they can enjoy while teaching them life lessons in the process.  I also created The Electrifying Adventures of Mr. Powers to show everyone that Black Men can be great fathers and still be cool. I pulled from my own experiences to show how great dads and superheroes are synonymous. The idea is to give kids inspiration to use their imaginations to create while putting smiles on the faces of parents everywhere.
