WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL BLOG SITE FOR THE SPEEDSUIT POWERS TRILOGY!
Purchase Speedsuit Powers (Book 1) wherever books are sold! Book 2 launches June 23, 2015! BUY Speedsuit Powers HERE!!!
PREVIEW CHAPTER 1 HERE!
Note to educators and parents: While Speedsuit Powers is an urban story; it is a wholesome yet realistic read. There’s no cursing, no sex and no gratuitous violence… It’s an epic adventure with complex characters who genuinely depict the realities of urban life without glorifying those negative aspects.
HERE’S WHAT ONE READER HAD TO SAY:
“This is a ‘must read’ book for all persons on all levels especially our youth who experience being bullied daily. This book does not contain any profanity and will keep you wide awake at night wondering what’s next! I have truly never read such an inspirational, motivating novel before such as this. The humor contained within also had my children looking at me “suspiciously” wondering what was so interesting and emotional. My daughter, who prefers movies over reading books, has decided to read this novel as well. Needless to say, we are eagerly looking for a Part 2 to Speedsuit Powers or at least a movie! Thank you Allen! - Zelda Revell, NY

My friend Frank sent me an article, back in September, about an experimental jetpack being created to enable soldiers to run faster. When he told me about it, he said, “It looks like someone’s been reading your novel, Speedsuit Powers.” You can read the article here:
Now, I don’t know if someone at DARPA or at Arizona State University has actually read my novel. However, considering that my protagonist, Curtis Powers creates a jet-powered suit that enables him to run at incredible speeds, it’s not a stretch that perhaps someone has read the novel or watched my independent film adaptation, Speedsuit (or at least heard of them).
If you didn’t already know: Speedsuit Powers is a TRILOGY. And if everything goes according to plan, the second book will launch on April 21, 2015. Interestingly, in Book 2, one of the issues that is raised is whether Curtis’ inventions should be used for military use. (Book 2 will also address issues like: school bullying, fatherlessness, and decision making.)
Anyway, it will be interesting to see what kind of ‘running jetpack’ Arizona State U and DARPA can develop. Their current design looks promising. However, based on the research I did to design the suit for my character, I think my concept would be more efficient. Guess, I’m going to have to build a working model in 2015. And who knows… maybe ASU or DARPA will call me as a consultant.
Get Ready for the Launch. #SPBook2April2015

Here’s the synopsis for Book 2 of the Speedsuit Powers Trilogy. (Book 2 launches December 2014)
Finally. Part two of the story you’ve been waiting for…
Curtis and Treyshawn are two fatherless boys who struggle to navigate the world. Curtis seeks to build on the life lessons his father taught him. Treyshawn seeks to break down the walls his father put between them. As these boys transition into manhood, how will they survive?
At the start of ninth grade, Treyshawn bullied Curtis relentlessly! But, this motivated Curtis to create a hi-tech plan. With the help of his family, his best friend Kelly and others, that plan did more than anyone thought possible and changed everyone’s lives forever! In the process, the boys settled their differences and forged a friendship to help each other overcome the obstacles they faced. Their friendship led to the creation of the Mach-1 Speedsuit and earned them worldwide recognition.
Now, Curtis, Treyshawn and Kelly are on a new adventure to further pursue their dreams: college. Their future seems sure, but they soon learn that opportunity often comes with opposition. The pressures they encounter cause them to question everything: Is Curtis fast enough to stop tragic events? Does Treyshawn really have his life under control? Will Kelly’s growing love for Curtis be challenged by his increasing fame?
As the answers to these questions unfold, Curtis, Treyshawn and Kelly discover: ‘When everyone isn’t for you, you still must press toward your destiny.’
