About this title:

Synopsis: Adam Darvin was a normal young man living in a suburb of Clarendon Ditch until the day he "hatched." Suddenly in a fiery trance-like state, Adam's incredible powers emerge. The life Adam knew is over in an instant and his entire world will never be the same. Although Adam initially feels isolated by his new powers, he slowly discovers that he's not alone. Adam meets other would-be heroes Liam Clover and Kerri Ross and develops deep friendships with both. Follow Adam, Liam, and Kerri as they learn more about their powers, discover secrets about their true enemies, and make new allies in what will begin as a fight for knowledge and survival, and soon become an epic struggle to save their world. The Champion of Clarendon Ditch is a story about heroism, sacrifice, loneliness, leadership, and above all, friendship. It combines the excitement of a super hero comic book adventure with the heart of a character-based and relationship-driven novel. With both incredible battles and quieter moments between its characters, the story is as much about super-powered good fighting to overcome an all-powerful evil, as it is about the relationships, growth, love, and loss of its heroes.

About the Author: Matt Galeone currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland and was raised in Seekonk Massachusetts. He is the author of The Champion of Clarendon Ditch (books 1-3) and is currently working on their sequels; The 15th Chair (books 1-3). In addition to writing, Matt’s other interests include paddle boarding, snowboarding, supporting independent music, photography, reading sci-fi and comic books, traveling to see friends and family, and playing with his cats Oberst and Valentine. He has degrees in English and psychology, a masters in industrial and organizational psychology, and a doctorate in organizational leadership. Matt has noted that his influences include Ender’s Game and its sequels by Orson Scott Card, Y: The Last Man by Brian K Vaughan and Pia Guerra, the music of the independent band Bright Eyes, and the Dark Phoenix Saga by Chris Claremont. In addition to writing the The Champion of Clarendon Ditch and The 15th Chair, Matt co-founded the independent publishing company, 1st Ride Publishing with his editor and Business Partner, Beth Williams. The pair believes that with the advent and proliferation of e-readers, independent publishing companies can change the industry much the way independent record labels were able to impact the music industry utilizing new technology. Both Matt and Beth are long-time supporters of independent music and art and decided to support the community they love with their publishing company.
