THE DOWN SYNDROME SUPERHERO 3 IN PRODUCTION
At nine years old, Cilantra is Josie's best friend and confidant. Her family is experienced with ancient Israeli mysticism - a family friend and Rabbi believes she is an old world talisman and conduit between the natural and spiritual.
A fun loving, charismatic Down Syndrome teenager. Josie is known for her unfiltered dialogue and imaginative abilities. She soon realizes her DNA might be the key to a locked mystery involving ancient portals and vortexes.
She's ancient, fierce, and downright magical. She knows a thing or two about how to conquer the Sashima (Sashimi). She's always there to save the day and lead the crew. Her powers stem from understanding earth's vibrations and frequencies. She can sing her way into other portals.
He's a four legged foot sniffer with a knack for finding sacred objects. Zeke is Josie's other best friend - always there to tickle her toes with his tongue. He loves an adventure, almost as much as he loves dog treats.
She is Josie's mum and Oliver's wife. Her personality shines as the overprotective lioness and supporter of Josie's adventures. She loves to cook and has a thing for indie pop music.
He makes a brief appearance in the first and second books. The purple realm is fortunate to have him as a warrior, as is Cilantra. He tends to fight from a distance, always in the right place at the right time.
We meet these sinister characters in the first Down Syndrome Superhero book, where they are introduced as Sashima. In the second book, they morph into their ethereal selves, Sashimi, with changed physical attributes.
He is Josie's dad and Alana's husband. As an architect, he provides plenty of creative inspiration and he thinks like a mathematician. He is overwhelmingly supportive of Josie's newfound skills and her calling to save earth from the Sashimi's influence. Oh, and he likes Alana's cooking.
His character is not introduced until the second book but he maintains an important presence from books 2 - 3. His Native American culture helps Josie and her family unlock important information about earth's guardians. He is also cranky in the mornings if he does not have his cup of coffee.
