    Can one boy stop a nefarious plot to turn kids into super-mutants?

    Maverick Mercury enjoys his life as the sideshow attraction known as “Gator Boy” at Grumbling’s Traveling Circus and Sideshow.

    His freakish mutations are the result of some billionaire geneticist’s experiments gone awry.  But life as a mutant is about to get worse, as Maverick uncovers a plot to kidnap kids, turns them into super-mutants, and sells their powers to the highest bidder.

    Now, Maverick is on a mission to find the mad scientist who may have created him and destroy his sinister plans!


    Maverick would look just like a normal boy if only...

    He didn’t have a ridged back.

    His eyes didn’t glow red at night.

    He didn’t have a fourteen-inch long tail.

    And if his teeth weren’t all craggy.

    Like an alligators.

    Mutations aside, Mav likes to think he looks like any of the crazed rock stars he idolizes. He’s totally tricked out and freaking unique. Perhaps a dash a Jimi Hendrix with a cup of David Bowie.


    Samantha Vérant is a travel addict, a self-professed oenophile, and a determined, if occasionally unconventional, French chef. Over the years, she’s visited many different countries, lived in many places, and worked many jobs— always on the search for the one thing that truly excited her. Then, one day, she found everything she’s been looking for: a passion for the written word and true love. Writing not only enabled her to open her heart, it led her to southwestern France, where she’s now married to a sexy French rocket scientist she met over twenty years ago, a stepmom to two incredible kids, and the adoptive mother to one ridiculously expensive Bengal cat. When she’s not trekking from Provence to the Pyrénées, tasting wine in American-sized glasses, or embracing her inner Julia Child while deliberating what constitutes the perfect boeuf bourguignon, Samantha is making her best effort to relearn those dreaded conjugations.
