As you embark on the journey within the pages of this book, I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude for joining me in the world I've created. "Many years ago, in a world very different from our own," a tale began to take shape—one of destiny, courage, and the intertwining of worlds.
And as you immerse yourself in this first chapter of Gabriel's journey, I'm excited to share a glimpse of what lies ahead. In my upcoming book, "Allies," Gabriel discovers a profound truth: the unique strengths of each individual increase the strength of the whole. Together, they are infinitely stronger. The bonds forged in the crucible of adversity will pave the way for unlikely alliances, and the power of unity will stand as their greatest weapon against the encroaching darkness.
Thank you for giving life to these characters and this world. As you read, may you find solace in the pages, inspiration in Gabriel's journey, and a renewed belief in the magic that exists within and around us.
L.K. has been captivated by the art of journaling since childhood, where the seeds of her passion for storytelling were sown. Her journey as a writer truly took flight when she embarked on a transformative writing course titled “How to Write a Book in 30 Days.” Although the journey extended far beyond the initial 30 days, it was during a creative writing exercise that a powerful idea took root—a vision encompassing a dark woman, a mysterious medal, and an enigmatic skull, all entwined within the pages of a journal and were unceremoniously stashed under her bed for safe keeping.
Little did L.K. know that several years later, this idea would evolve into the captivating prologue of her debut work, "Taking Flight," a story that would go on to ignite the imaginative creation of witches' windows and the enthralling realm of window worlds.
Sometimes, as L.K. discovered, adversity can spark remarkable creativity. After an unexpected departure from a 21-year-long job, she harnessed the power of her mornings for writing and her afternoons for the pursuit of new opportunities. In a mere four months, the tale of "Taking Flight" found its culmination and was, once again, stashed under the bed. Again, adversity struck and this time the intricate threads of the story were woven together with the collaborative efforts of family and friends who played integral roles in the editing, promotion, and eventual release of the story to the world.
Beyond her role as a wife, mother, Gramie and dedicated worker bee, L.K. carves out precious moments to immerse herself in the realm of writing. Her determination and creative spirit shine through as she balances the demands of her everyday life with the world-building and storytelling that fuel her soul.
She is currently writing book 2 in The White Falcon: TALON Series, Allies.
