New York needs a superhero – as usual. But no one was expecting the most outrageous hero to ever hit the streets!
In the tough and gritty streets of New York’s early 70s punk scene, Kitty Hampshire is still finding her own identity. But she’s certain of one thing – she always knew she was meant to be a man. Alongside the eccentric friends she meets in NYC’s underground clubs and bars, Kitty learns about love and life and has the surgery to affirm her true gender.
Kitty becomes Kit Simmons, but mysterious forces are present in the flesh grafted onto Kit’s body. In an era of turmoil and violence, Kit finds himself endowed with bizarre superhuman abilities. But can he really protect his friends from the oppressive forces plotting against New York?
Transformer Kit is a totally unique adult urban fantasy, featuring a found family of rebels, misfits and quirky characters who will make you laugh out loud and gasp in disbelief as they fight to stay free in the big, bad, beautiful city.

Well, if you want something different, this is it. Very cleverly written, with an amazingly funny main character. You’ll know what I mean when you read it 😂.
AMAZON READER REVIEW OF TRANSFORMER KIT
Full of British-style humor. I laughed out loud in many parts. It takes place in 1972 which removes cell phones and gadgets from the story and brings a world of images to mind. I loved that! Kit’s devotion to Elz is beautiful and his conversations with his own body are like arguments he has with himself.
