I know it's been a long time since I posted but here I am again. :-) What's new, you ask? Well.... my daughter is home from college for the summer and we are enjoying an Adventure Day each week. We are lucky to live in Twilight territory (yes, we live pretty close to Forks, Washington) and so this week we went hiking in the Olympic Peninsula Forest which is where Edward and company lived....and played baseball.... To wit.....
That is a HUGE rock below.......followed by the mysterious forest....
If one is going to find vampires - this would be the spot you would look. But more seriously, I don't know any fantasy writer who doesn't love a mysterious forest - and the Olympic Peninsula is a natural rainforest that is SO fabulous!
On the writing front, I have finished a new fantasy, sci-fi story entitled THE NIGHT GATE and am currently seeking representation. It's a tough business so we'll see how that goes. Here's the blurb about THE NIGHT GATE:
Can Anna change the past to save the future?
As a Paradox who can alter history, Anna must jump through time to save those she loves and a doomed future—before the evil Morg capture her.
Born in London 1870, Anna Brown learns on her eighteenth birthday that she is a Traveler—someone with the ability to move between the past, present and future through a timeslip known as the Night Gate. In a cosmic game of cat and mouse, she is tracked through time by the Morg, bounty hunters from the future.
To escape, Anna jumps through the Night Gate to another lifetime and meets the mysterious Zev, but the Morg are getting closer, leaving a bloody trail through time. As Anna hides in yet another lifetime she falls in love and learns she is a Paradox—conceived in the future but born in the past—giving her the unique ability to alter history. But as her past collides with her future, she must choose between saving those she loves and saving the world…
It's a different kind of story than THE FAERIE RING but kind of a fun read. What do you think? Sound interesting? Let me know in the comments!
That's it for now. Be back soon!
