Life is an adventure. Sometimes, it takes us to the heights of joy. Other times, it's frustrating. Most of the time, its the mundane daily events that make it a miracle. But one thing is certain: its too big to be contained into one reality. That's why we read: so we can experience a fullness of life outside of ourselves that gives us inspiration on how to make the day to day business of being human exciting.
Welcome to a sanctuary where you can step away from the day-to-day and escape reality to new worlds and exciting adventures of ordinary people facing extraordinary circumstances. I hope you find joy and inspiration in these science fiction, mystery, general fiction, and inspirational books that will bring you to eclectic realities that will inspire you to return to your own world with encouragement to keep on keeping on, every day.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Columbia, South Carolina, where I still live. Obviously, spending your entire life in one place has a huge influence on the characters you create and the settings you put them in. Being a state that's mostly rural with what's classified as "small towns," I create a lot of people that are simple yet complex, living in areas where "everybody knows everybody else." But doesn't the simplistic beauty of small town gossip make for the most interesting stories?
When did you first start writing?
I've been writing my entire life. Before I learned how to write, I'd draw pictures in my books to "expand" on the stories that my parents read to me. I always liked writing short stories, but I didn't seriously pursue writing and novels until my husband and I got our first home computer in 2001.
Three sentient races. Two wars. One sustainable planet. Who will rise?

Ayanna died and went to Heaven – or so she’s been told. Perhaps she did, if she can dismiss the inconsistencies between her expectations, and this imperfect utopia. Is this life after death , or something else?

I don't normally read romance, but I'm glad I decided to give this a try. It was interesting and I, like some other reviewers, was left to wonder what happens next. Great work!
