Alesha Dixon says:
My inspiration to create a superhero called Lightning Girlbegan
with wanting my young daughter to feel empowered.
It's been a dream to create a strong role model thatany
child can look up to - I want my readers to see themselves
in Aurora, who is dealing with trouble at home and trouble at
school alongside her new powers.
I also have a love of precious stones and their healing properties;
I have always been fascinated with their spectacular colours
and the positive energy that they bring.
As human beings we are always searching for something greater
within ourselves and a deeper meaning to life and it's
my belief that we all have a light within us that can affect change
and bring good to the world... we just have to harness it!
:) Enter Aurora Beam!
