Author Tara Ellis lives in a small, rural town in Washington State, set in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. She enjoys the quiet lifestyle with her husband, two teenage kids and several dogs. Tara was a firefighter/EMT (yes, you read that right) and worked in the medical field for many years, before committing herself to writing young adult and middle grade novels full-time after life threw the MS curve-ball at her. (she still dabbles in teaching CPR)
She grew up on sci-fi, was a devoted Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica fan, and has since found a love for conspiracy theories. This background, combined with a wild imagination has led to The Forgotten Origins Trilogy. The first book in the series, Bloodline, won Honorable Mention in the Readers' Favorite 2015 book contest, and was a finalist in the IAN 2015 Book of the Year.
You can find all of her books at her author page on Amazon!
Have you read of the Nephilim and found yourself wondering who they really were? What about the other, similarly described beings from ancient text? Over the past two years, I have written a unique trilogy encompassing not only the Nephilim, but Sumerian stories, Native American Legends and Egyptian history. The Time of the Nephilim is a short story based on the characters from Forgotten Origins.
The following short story is a true account of my experience as a child, the day that Mount Saint Helens erupted. Please keep in mind that this is as it was seen through the eyes of a child, without any prior knowledge or awareness that there was even a live volcano anywhere nearby.
