Born in the Southwest, I have lived all over the US and spent many years in the Caribbean. I'm a people-watcher and a comparative thinker who is fascinated with words, art, and ideas.
I have a passion to share spiritual life in a way that allows the reader to weigh the values of different ideologies from a non-threatening perspective (a favorite reading chair). My heart is best expressed in the article Science Fiction . . . and our Brokenness .
My new series -- Scions of the Aegean C -- is written in the "steampunk" genre (a sub-genre of Scifi) and book one is available right here on Smashwords.
HOW FAR CAN LOVE TRAVEL?
The continuing glut of romance novels in our society bears testimony to the desire of so many women to know a love that will endure all things for the sake of the beloved. But romance isn't the only kind of love, and the continuing onslaught of action movies featuring the camaraderie of buddies who will risk death to save each other says even tough guys crave love.
Author Terry Craig says, "In my series, Scions of the Aegean C, I wanted to show the many faces of what we call love and the long-term impact each kind can have upon people, their families, communities, and the world. Yes, there will be some sweet love stories, but there will be threads of sacrificial love, familial love, deep bonds of friendship, and even dysfunctional love. All along the way, there will be adventure, exploration, discovery, and the unfolding mystery of faith."
The Scions series brings adventure and danger with a fine love story. It's written for readers 16 and up who relish stories with complex characters and richly-textured settings.
