About the Author

Mary Winn Heider is the author of two middle-grade novels: The Losers at the Center of the Galaxy and The Mortification of Fovea Munson. She is currently working on a theatrical adaptation of FOVEA for The Kennedy Center with the composer Justin Huertas. Her picture book The Unicorns Who Saved Christmas, illustrated by Christian Cornia, is out now. Mary Winn has an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and she lives in Chicago, where she teaches creative writing residencies with PlayMakers Lab, performs at theaters around the city, and sometimes helps out at The Mystery League.

Chad Sell grew up in a small town in central Wisconsin. He lived in a neighborhood much like the Cardboard Kingdom, where he and his friends bounded through backyards in imaginative games and outfits. He also drew a lot and came up with all kinds of colorful characters. His favorites were often the villains, because despite being different and misunderstood, they were powerful and confident, and they got the best costumes. Chad lives in Connecticut with his husband and two cats.


"A wannabe superhero faces multiple mysteries and tests in this engaging series opener." --Kirkus Reviews

"While the innovative gadgets and superpowers that populate this madcap series starter....are surprising and amusing, the story's true heart comes from Switcheroo's struggles navigating family and friendship dynamics, and learning to trust himself." --Publishers Weekly
