Interview With Author Isaac Kester


1. What inspired you to write this book?     Honestly, my dad saying a random thought that maybe I should write a story about a superhero team in powerchairs.  

2. What exactly is it about and who is it written for?   It is about 4 boys with what I will call "superchairs" and they along with their cyber dog fend off the evil Dark Dolphin.  It is meant for 10 to 12 year old boys, but anyone can enjoy it   

3. What do you hope readers will get out of reading your book?  I am hoping that people see that disabled people are just as good as normal people if you just give them a chance.  

4. How did you decide on your book’s title and cover design?  For the title, my original story was actually just one kid named Derek the Doughnut Boy, but when I made it a team I had to come up with a different name, and that just popped in my head.  For the cover, it is a mix of page and my cousin's design,  

5. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers – other than run!? Three very simple words, go for it!  It is better to try and fail then to not try.  

6. What trends in the book world do you see -- and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?  I don't know, I don't really read enough to know or recognize trends.  I just know I was looking for books about kids with disabilities and was not have a lot of luck finding them.  That is one reason for my book.  

7. Were there experiences in your personal life or career that came in handy when writing this book?  My life.  I have CP and drive a powerchair.  I have overcome many obstacles to be able to do the things I can do and I just wanted others to know that it is possible.      

8. How would you describe your writing style? Which writers or books is your writing similar to?  I think my style is very flamboyant and passionate. Kind of like the captain underpants and dog man.  

9. What challenges did you overcome in the writing of this book? The big challenge was overcoming the fear that the publishing company won't accept me, I wrote it just for fun but when I decided to think about actually publishing that scared me.  

10. If people can buy or read one book this week or month, why should it be yours?  It is very easy to read, you can read it all in one go pretty easily, and not to mention, reading it with a kid.  If you have a kid to read to the will enjoy reading it more than once I have been told.  

About The Author: I was born with cerebral palsy and, really, nobody knew how far I would go. Thankfully, my parents had their parents, who taught me a crap ton. I started kindergarten at Purchase Line and made my way up. During the pandemic I started my first story, which was really me messing around. Then, Memorial Day 2021 came. That is when I got my idea. After 2 years of writing, it was sent to the publisher. Another year of waiting, and I had done it, published by 16 years old.
