I’m revealing my NEW book cover bursting with girl power and superhero action.

A book that embraces your inner superhero.

Drum roll … TA-DAH!

Revealing Song Bird Superhero (Song Bird 1) by Karen Tyrrell

An intriguing, action-packed novel for girls 7-12.

Exploring 21st century HOT topics with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).

How does Rosella Ava Bird overcome bullying?


Revealing my NEW Book Blurb…

Rosella Bird‘s nightly dreams are filled with flying. Too bad her waking hours are a living nightmare.

Her flying inventions crash.

Her kooky parents are overprotective.

Her singing shatters windows.

The principal bans her from the science fair.

Worst of all, she lives next door to Frank Furter, an evil boy-genius whose sights are set on seeing her fail. Rosella is the girl least likely to soar, and yet when she learns to sing, something incredible takes flight. Rosella becomes Song Bird, a flying superhero who saves the day.

Can Song Bird defeat Frank Furter’s evil bullying ways.

Revealing why I wrote Song Bird Superhero …

Have you ever dreamed of flying? … I mean really flying?

I have.

My childhood was plagued with nightly dreams of  soaring through the air.

A wondrous magical escape from my daily grind of being bullied at school.

How did I empower myself?
