Feeling chatty?

Welcome to my blog! Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and read what's on my mind. I've a vicious sense of humor, an apprecation for romance and a mad addiction to writing.

Time Travel. Fact or Fiction? You Tell Me.

Most would say the very idea of time-travel is preposterous. Others would disagree.

Personally, I’m open to just about anything. Granted, I write about time-travel so no surprise there. However, I fully recognize that technology is moving forward at breakneck speed. I can assure you that I was unable to hop on the internet in eighth grade. Nor was I able to text my mom to say that I was at a friend’s house. Nope, I was too busy playing ‘Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?’ on my DOS computer. That big, clunky box that cost my parents (bless them) a whopping $2000.
That was only twenty years ago, folks. Pretty darn amazing how far we’ve come since then, eh? So if technology is advancing so quickly what's to say time-travel doesn’t become possible in the future? Hey, Einstein believed it’d be possible! And just look how far we’ve come since the beginning of the twentieth century…
“According to Kurzweil's The Law of Accelerating Return, since the beginning of evolution, more complex life forms have been evolving exponentially faster, with shorter and shorter intervals between the emergence of radically new life forms, such as human beings, who have the capacity to engineer (intentionally to design with efficiency) a new trait which replaces relatively blind evolutionary mechanisms of selection for efficiency."

Book Description

Eternity can suck when it’s all work, work, work. Death harvests souls even when they stack up faster than pancakes in an all-you-can-eat-buffet. No wonder she can’t shed the Grim Reaper rep.

As the patron angel of death and dying, Azrael works closely with Death but is dying for true intimacy. She’s the only immortal who’s ever aroused such powerful emotions in him. One taste of her leaves him needing her like humans need air and food, but will a demon’s lies leave a bad taste?

No one escapes Death – except King Sisyphus. Twice. With the help of Damien the demon, Sisyphus tries again, and she’s determined to have justice. Some say Death’s a bitch, but only when she has to be. But will the price of justice be a broken heart?

Sixteen year old Wisteria Kuti has two options—track the infected around the Isle of Smythe or leave the only known safe haven and face a world infested with flesh eating biters. But even with well-armed trackers, things go wrong and Wisteria ends up alone facing certain death, until she is rescued by the mysterious Bach. Uninfected, Bach is able to survive among the hordes of living dead.
Eighteen year old Bach, from a race known as The Family, has no interest in human affairs. He was sent here to complete his Great Walk and return home as a man—as a Sen Son. The Family regard humans as Dirt People, but Bach is drawn to this Terran girl, whom he has never seen before, but somehow knows. 
Hunted by flesh eaters, cannibals, and the mysterious blood thirsty group called Red Phoenix, Wisteria and Bach make their way back to the Isle of Smythe, a community built on secrets and lies.
