About the Author

Jonathan Diaz is an attorney by day and a photographer by night. When he isn't taking photographs of mermaids, dragon riders, and fairies, Jon enjoys spending time with his wife and family. Jon's favorite saying is, "Ok, just one more picture!"

Reviews

Original fairy tales and hero stories written by authors inspired by Diaz's photography...Each tale is unique and begins with a short description of the child, his or her personal story, and the photograph...Vibrant photographs of children who are battling cancer. An inspiring anthology of well-told short stories accompanied by beautiful visuals."
-- "School Library Journal" (8/1/2015 12:00:00 AM)
"Shannon Hale offers a tale of a warrior princess imprisoned in a tower by goblins who shave her head so she can't escape à la Rapunzel, and Brandon Mull gives readers a costumed young superhero redirecting a vengeful bullying victim onto the moral high road; both stories are strong and effective...There's quality here...The worthy purpose shines through."-- "Kirkus" (8/1/2015 12:00:00 AM)
"The photography, heroic adventures, and profiles of the children who inspired them add up to a project that's inspiring and moving on multiple levels."-- "Publishers Weekly" (9/3/2015 12:00:00 AM)
"This beautiful volume provides a hopeful antidote that combines fantastical and inspirational pictures with prose designed to engage children's imaginations and remind them that they are full of power, strength, and hope."--Richard Paul Evans, NYT Bestselling author "Publishers Weekly" (5/5/2015 12:00:00 AM)
"A unique literary treasury...Truly exceptional, unfailingly entertaining, inspired and inspiring, "True Heroes" is unreservedly recommended for children ages 8 to 11 and will prove to be an enduringly popular addition to family, elementary school, and community library collections."--Richard Paul Evans, NYT Bestselling author "Midwest Book Review" (5/5/2015 12:00:00 AM)
