Our minds want more.
We want to explore the world.
We need to explore the unknown.
If we can’t fulfill our dreams in our daily lives,
Then we can achieve them in our writing.
We write short stories and novels
About evil creatures and deadly games.
That is precisely what I have done.
I picked an exotic locale.
I picked Florida.
Not exactly exotic but it has palm trees.
I grew up in a big city
But always wanted to live in a small town.
I created a small town
And called it, Oasis.
The main character is me.
I love books and bookstores.
The protagonist moves to Oasis
And opens a bookshop.
You get the idea.
The main character, Linda,
Is living my dream.
She makes friends and is happy.
Then my mind takes a darker turn.
Linda and her friends uncover secrets.
They’re pursued by dark shadows,
Caught in a quagmire of deceit and evil.
I have my small town
By the seashore,
Where fantasies come true,
And some just don’t.
