At four years old, David spends his days exploring with curious contemplation the vast wonders of the seemingly magical world around him. His only real care is wondering when his big brother, Robert, will be home from school to share it with him. 
His life is replete with typical childhood antics, joys and fears, and nightmares that wrack his sleep, but ultimately every morning, he knows a new adventure awaits. The divorce of their parents two years later sets in motion a chain of unforeseen events that bring David closer to his brother as a real-life nightmare unfolds. 
Alcoholism, tough financial times, and an archaic and draconian version of religion lead to physical, mental, and emotional abuse, and ultimately to abandonment. Seldom told are first-person perspectives from such a young age, but author David Faulkner's meticulous recall and witty but poignant narration capture the spirit of childhood and reveal the often dark realities of what goes on behind closed doors. 

Superheroes takes us on a compelling journey from innocence to awareness, from a carefree world to one of heartbreak and tragedy, and leaves no emotional stone unturned.

About the Author:

David Faulkner holds bachelor's and master's degrees in Spanish, with an emphasis in teaching, and has taught Spanish in every grade from fourth to the university level. He is passionate about the fundamentals of language, as well as interpersonal communication and personal expression, but he is also passionate about mentoring kids.

After finally speaking up about his childhood experiences as both a witness to and victim of domestic violence and alcoholism, Faulkner hopes Superheroes will bring more awareness to this often unspoken topic and help victims find their own voice. 
Faulkner enjoys spending time with his two children, public speaking, traveling the world, and staying active. He is an idealist and a relentless dreamer, always in pursuit of joy. Superheroes is his first book.

Review:

"Faulkner writes convincingly and movingly ..." -- Kirkus Reviews

"... compelling ... gripping ... this is a page-turner.... Superheroes is a professionally written narrative, told with detail and through a young boy's innocent eye." -- BlueInk Review
