My purpose for writing this is to take you along on my journey of creating my first piece of fiction. Here I will share my thoughts, my rants and raves, my experiences and anything else that may be pertinent to this journey. I am fresh from my very first Writer’s Conference with Romance Writer’s of America. That’s not to say this piece of fiction that I am writing will be completely romance. As far as category goes, it will probably be more aligned with Young Adult, but it will have a love story in it because I can not help myself. This will be a parallel journey in some respects, as my heroine will also be taking her own journey, somewhat reluctantly. We will both be growing through our journeys and hope that you will join us.
Let me start my saying that I am a great fan of both JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis. Both these Christian men were brilliant in their creations of fantastical worlds of good and evil. With that in mind, I hope to write a piece that combines their worlds. In the Land of Tolisen, darkness is ever encroaching on the natural light that comes from the lower earth provinces. Tera must answer her destiny and accept the first quest of seven in order to bring permanent light to Lower Earth. Will she accept her challenge? Will she be successful? What dangers will there be? How will she protect herself and if she does not go, then who will?
