Everyone, at some point in time, battles with ‘being comfortable in their own skin
Manassas, Va. (PRWEB) January 09, 2015
Author Terry Carsten grew up surrounded with a lot of bad influences. Looking back, he wants to give back to the children in his community by sharing with them the most important positive lessons that he has learned. In “Mika Flint” (published by Xlibris), he tells a supernatural story meant to send the message that it does not matter what one’s background is, because everyone has the power inside of them to change their destiny.
Newly awakened to his powers as a Death Angel, 13-year-old Mika Flint finds himself in a quest for the fate of life itself. Death has escaped, and now he is the only one with the power to capture it again. His success — no — his survival rests on him finding Orion’s Crown. With an evil army Death Angels out for his blood, Mika must master his powers as he journeys across worlds to find the crown. Will he succeed and be the hero everyone wants him to be? Or will he die trying? “Mika Flint” unveils the tale of his extraordinary adventures, answering these questions and then some.
“Everyone, at some point in time, battles with ‘being comfortable in their own skin,’” says Carsten. In creating the character of Mika, he wanted to represent every kid that battles with insecurity and doubts about their future. This book relates that and shows how one may go about learning to master it.

About the Author
Terry Carsten grew up in Chicago in the neighborhood of Englewood where gang wars, murders and robberies were common. The streets were so dangerous that he spent most of his time indoors. The violence in his neighborhood made it a prison for him, a prison that he escapes through daydreaming and writing. Once he was old enough to leave his neighborhood, he went off to college then joined a group that travelled throughout the USA. It was through this group that he got to meet hundreds of kids and be a role model in their lives. His interactions with them broke his heart forever and he now lives with the constant question, “Who will help the children?”
