LEE TURNER ON WHAT THE BOOK IS ABOUT AND WHY SHE IS EXCITED FOR IT TO COME OUT:
“The book, above all, is about family, specifically the relationship between a mother and daughter, and how family will do anything to protect each other. I’m excited for this to come out as it’s been my dream to write since I was a child – and I’m also excited for people to read about a birthday party clown getting the crap kicked out of him and the St. Louis Arch being turned into a secret government antennae!”
LEE TURNER ON HER INSPIRATIONS BEHIND CREATING THE BOOK:
“My biggest inspiration for this book comes from my family. My mother and I have always been close and a lot of Cat and Missy’s relationship is built on that. I also love action movies that are sometimes a little nuts – so I filled this book with tons of suspense and kick-ass fight and chase sequences that I hope people enjoy!”
LEE TURNER ON WHAT SHE FINDS IS THE MOST CHALLENGING ASPECT OF BEING A COMIC BOOK CREATOR AND ALSO THE MOST FULFILLING:
“The most challenging aspect for me as a comic book creator is fitting all of my ideas into 24 pages. I had to condense lots of story to fit it in this book. The most fulfilling thing is easily seeing my words brought to life on the page by the amazing artists involved with this project. They did an amazing job!”
LEE TURNER ON (3) REASONS WHY COMIC BOOK READERS SHOULD PICK UP THIS BOOK:
- "It is a fast-paced story with lots of action, comedy and heart."
- "The story is very intriguing and keeps readers guessing as more and more information is revealed through our characters’ journey."
- "The artwork is incredible and took my breath away the first time I saw it."
