ABOUT THE SERIES

The thrilling YA Fantasy Fiction novel series prepares for the release of book II this fall, 2018. Now on Channillo.com

At the end of each chapter, leave your comments/notes/suggestions to the author, for the chance to influence the direction of this imaginative new novel series. Follow along to explore the origin of humankind's duality, and to ask yourself just how far you would go to reach either the epitome of revenge or the height of redemption.

ABOUT the nameless: book I

Have you ever felt as if you were meant for something more than your life has become? What if everything you thought you knew about who you are – and who your family is – vanished in an instant? Faced with options and unlimited power, who would you allow yourself to become?

This is Satya’s story. 

Until the morning of her 18th birthday, Satya lived a quiet, happy life nestled within the sheltering Redwoods of her childhood. After an unexpected admission from her father, a mysterious stranger comes to her door and offers her a gift she cannot refuse – the gift of her true identity and something completely unimaginable.

Thrust into the ageless battle between good and evil where no one is who they seem to be, Satya must choose between her life before and her future, between the one she loves and the one who loves her.  And she must face the truth about who she really is, no matter what it may cost her in the end.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

 

To The Red Rooster Coffee House in Aberdeen, South Dakota, for providing me a venue in which to hang out and write for hours, albeit write with hands shaking from endless cups of delicious, free-trade coffee you provided. Much obliged, Dan, Kileen and Angie Cleberg.

To Shaun O’Connell, thank you for telling me that my story is one that demands to be heard and made into a movie. I look forward to working on that project with you.

Michelle Ramsey, thank you for reading the beginning of the first draft and telling me I had done it this time and that my story was gold. Your encouragement kept me writing.

M.A. Bookout for providing useful feedback that lit a fire beneath me when I was starting to feel complacent.

JoAnne Jessen, my freshman composition student, thank you for typing my final line and letting me hug you and jump up and down and scream with excitement when it was finally done.

To Tyler Oliver, graphic designer extraordinaire, many thanks for designing the cover art and inside illustrations – you are an artistic genius and you captured the essence of the saga beautifully. And thank you for reading the manuscript and giving me honest male-perspective feedback.

To Rick Hueston and Steve Luczynski, thank you, you brave grown men, for being beta readers for a YA novel targeting teenage and college age girls. You guys are brave, and your feedback was essential.

Twila Johnston, my mother, thank you for giving me a thesaurus and dictionary when I was too little to even pronounce those words, and for providing me endless books as a child that became doorways into other worlds and realities, and helped to expand my imagination. Thank you, Mom, for telling me since I was a child that I am a storyteller, and for listening to me read all my original tales when I was a kid.

Aaron Schultz, for lending me to my story and characters and losing me to them for so long. I know it was difficult, watching me fall head-first into a fictional world and become lost there. I was unbearable and it was unfair and I know that. I just can’t help myself. Thank you for suffering through it and being there on the other side when I finally emerged again.

Chris Tye, my incredible best friend and nurturing soul-sister, thank you for believing that I am capable of anything and for wholeheartedly supporting my harebrained, crazy dreams. Our late night talks and our middle-of-the-afternoon girl dates and wine breaks allowed my soul to flourish in your presence and to open up to new possibilities that brought me to this moment. And your beautiful photograph of me is a cherished thing, but it doesn’t hold a flame to your beauty. Thank you, Chrissy.

Bodhi, my son, many thanks for the laughter and for singing the money song with me while we celebrated when I’d finished my first book. That one’s a trunk novel now, but your outpouring of love and support helped me have the courage to begin this one. Thank you, Bodhi-bear.

Ambrielle, my daughter, for insisting I write this story when I first began to talk to you about it. Your teenage girl insights were absolutely instrumental and I loved to watch your eyes twinkle as we talked about the characters. Your input and perspective helped to improve the story. And thank you for bringing me endless lists of YA books to read that whet my pallet for the genre. Jennifer Vivian, my precious

Jenni-girl, soul-sister separated at birth – endless thanks to you for your hours upon hours of discussion, reading, debating, sometimes even arguing with me over my characters and the things they were independently trying to do that you disliked. Thank you for trusting me when you thought I was going on a crazy tangent that you weren’t sure mattered but later thought was amazing. Thank you for taking my middle-of-the-night phone calls when I had an epiphany and was bursting at the seams to bounce it off someone who would care. Thank you for caring. Thank you for loving my characters as much as I do. Yes, I could have done it without you, but it wouldn’t have been the same story in the end and I wouldn’t have enjoyed the journey as much as I did. You are an amazing partner in crime.

Quiet appreciation for Billy – thank you for encouraging my dream.

And Kelly. Always, it’s Kelly; my life is transformed.

Namaste.
