Aurora never fit in and preferred the fantasy world she created for a video game to her own. In her fantasy world she’d found love and acceptance. Then one day a goose spoke to her, and she knew she had spent too much time in her fantasy world. Though she knows she must be crazy, a longing to “return home” compels her to listen to the goose and open a portal to another realm. Now Aurora must work with the man of her dreams—a warrior she’d thought was a result of her vivid imagination—to save both realms.
Tahlan is a warrior and warriors can’t fall in love. No matter how much he desires to make love to Aurora, no matter how much his heart tells him she’s the one, he can’t allow anyone to learn of his feelings for her. His love for her could lead to her death, and that’s the one pain he could not bear.
“Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!”
Well maybe not lions and tigers and bears, but I do love a big, beautiful dragon. And how about throwing a sexy warrior in the mix. Oh yeah, talk about Alpha male. Then of course what is any fantasy without a sorceress. And let’s not forget the elves. Oh yeah, it’s all in there.
I love fantasy books. The first fantasy novel I ever read is called Villains by Necessity by Eve Forward and it is one of my favorites. I’ve always wanted to make a fantasy world with my own rules and creatures. Well maybe not my own creatures, but my version of fantasy creatures.
One morning I was sitting in the courtyard outside of my office building when a Canadian goose decided he wanted to visit with me. It scared the heck out of me at first because these are not small birds and if they are nesting nearby, they will attack. I guess the goose decided I wasn’t a threat so hopped himself up on the opposite end of the bench. I jokingly said, “You’d better keep your feathered butt on that end of the bench or there will be a problem.”
That’s when the concept for a plot came to me. What if the goose answered? Next thing you know, I was writing The Other Realm.
Virtual Tour – As many of you know, fantasy isn’t my main genre, so getting the word out about The Other Realm hasn’t been the easiest. I’d like to thank each of you for helping spread the word, especially the authors below who took a chance on promoting me on their pages. After you finish reading the posts, be sure to check out their titles.
