I am Ross Eberle, creator of the Sky Fighters Novella Series! I was born in New Jersey and grew up in Philadelphia before moving down to Florida in the summer of 2003. My grandfather also happens to have been a famous Big Band singer. His name was Ray Eberle. If you’d like to know more about him (And my Mom, grandmoms, aunts, and uncles), you can read his article on Wikipedia right here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_Eberle
The concept of the Sky Fighters first came to me during a class project where students had to color in a totem pole. Back then, I was only 7 years old. And even though the teachers would not allow me to take part in the class project, seeing one of the animals carved into the totem pole drawing gave me inspiration to create special alien creatures which resembled foxes. They were multicolored and had square-shaped ears. These were known as Houndy Crunchers.
Soon thereafter, I bagged a bag of Home Girls potato chips as part of a class grab bag simply by selecting a number from 1 to 10. I selected number 5 and won the chips. The chips had an interesting picture of the Home Girls on them. While out shopping with my Mom, this gave me the idea to bestow super powers to the Home Girls and make them Humanistic Sky Fighters. The name Sky Fighters did not come to me until years later, however. By the time it did so, their appearance had advanced and included such perks as wings and wire-like tentacles on the sides of their bodies. Both can be extended and retracted according to their Willpower.
As you read my novellas, you will notice the people who are Sky Fighters have the ability to change their size, essentially making themselves 200 feet or taller or 7 inches or smaller. They also have magical powers, including Elemental Attacks, Teleportation, Invisibility, and once they’re strong enough, they grow a set of wings and are able to fly! I decided to make my books novella-length because of the way I have my story set up. The storyline has eight parts to it with each part depicting the events of a particular year or years. There may even be a ninth installment of the series! We’ll see…
If you’ve gotten this far in reading my biography, then congratulations to you! I hope you love reading the Sky Fighters Novella Series as much as I loved writing it. Until next time…Cheers!
