When we were kids, we all wanted to have our own superpowers. Be it through some higher force or by a random radioactive spider bite, we didn’t care how our powers would get activated as long as we reached the part where we could start our heroic mission. Thanks to our childhood superhero storytellers, we all grew up believing that we’re bound to save the world. Somehow, in between fiction and reality, we make the world a better place in our own ways.
Out of pure curiosity and sincere intentions, a young Peter Lerangis sent the New York State governor a letter asking scientists to create a potion for superpowers because he wanted one. Nowa best-selling author with 160 book titles under his belt, we’re thankful that he found his power through writing and even more grateful that he doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
Started from Lerangis’ obsession with the Seven Wonders of the World, his series tell you the story of Jack Mckinley and his three friends’ action-packed adventure that takes place throughout the Seven Wonders of the ancient world. After discovering a secret organization on a hidden island, an ancient priest blessed and cursed them with superpowers that can kill them once they turn 14. To counter this, they have to retrieve seven lost magical orbs from the seven wonders of the ancient world and bring them back to a secret place.
During his recent visit to Manila, Peter talked to Young STAR about his latest series, the Seven Wonders series and his writing process.
