Time travel aside, I am guilty of 'writing what I know'. I grew up reading Heinlein and Bradbury and was certain I'd head out for a space colony somewhere, just as soon as space exploration caught up with my sci-fi expectations. In my universe at least, that was not to be. Instead, I married while still a teenager to an Arkansas farm boy.
Instead of a space colonist, I became a Jill of all trades:
A novelist, artist, goat herder, chicken-fancier's wife, personal assistant to two German Shepherds, mother, back-alley aroma therapist, amateur herbalist, theorist, soaper, cat wrangler, explorer of alternatives, woo-woo spiritual advisor, wool spinner (or more properly, spinster), equestrian (retired), acquirer of antiques: i.e., I became an anachronistic dilettante. In most things, I dabble, but I am passionate about writing.
-- and it all began with a number 2 pencil on the back porch of the very same log cabin that contains the time vortex in my Wardenclyffe Trilogy books: Schrodinger's Goat, The Devil's Portrait, The Tesla Trap. (For sale on Amazon.com)
My fourth book, "Rides Eyes of Ghost", is the book I wanted to write since I was a girl, when I lay down sci-fi novels long enough to read horse stories. This however, is not just about 'a girl and her horse'; It is a Native American woman's solo journey across the west in search of her own identity. Her search becomes a mystical odyssey and her path leads her beyond this world.
My fifth book is a non-fiction spiritual meditation on the nature of change and contrast, titled "The Raw Materials of Miracles".
The underlying theme of allnmy work concerns alternate realities and journeys across the divide.
Except at the usual rate and in the usual direction, I'm sorry to say I have not (as yet) traveled in time. If my words survive the distant future, let this be notice that I'm game. Come and get me! As long as you can get me back again in time to milk the goats.

The Raw Materials of Miracles
by Dana Reynolds
The book began as an inspired correspondence between two women: One asking. The other allowing the answers to unfold. If you are facing an overwhelming situation, if you are afraid to admit you are suffering, if you are struggling with fear and are ready for clarity: Brace yourself. This book changes everything. All proceeds go to the co-creator of this work: the one who dared to ask.
