Marion G. Harmon
Marion G. Harmon has read and written all of his life (well, ever since first grade). He finished his first novel, Wearing the Cape, in 2010, and after failing to find an agent who knew what to do with a superhero story, decided to self-publish (mainly so he'd stop rewriting the book). He published through KDP and Createspace in mid-2011 with some success; Wearing the Cape earned a 4.5-star Amazon rating and spent most of 2012 ranked #1 in its Amazon category.
Marion has since written six more novels set in the same world (Bite Me: Big Easy Nights, Villains Inc., Young Sentinels, Small Town Heroes, Ronin Games, and Team-Ups and Crossovers), as well as Wearing the Cape: The Roleplaying Game. He is currently working hard on the eighth book, this one also featuring Astra and company, while polishing the plot of his deeply unserious space epic, Worst Contact. Really.
