What’s the Story?
We begin with a traveler. Then a warrior. And a watcher.
These people are not, each, as you imagine them in folklore of olde. They are part of our world as it is now, or was, or soon will be. As it has been and always will be, except for one thing and, don’t worry, I think you’ll know it when you see it.
Here’s the Gist…
2029. They told her not to do it. She did it anyway.
Now Kwynn’s on the run. From The Directive, her dead father, and herself. She’d like to catch on with the film crew she’s hooked up with and hack a clandestine server here and there but Kwynn has an inkling she’s destined for something bigger.
When power failures spread like wildfire across the West, she discovers it may be that dead father’s sentient servers creating the blackouts. She must break into those computers. However, Kwynn can’t do it alone. She needs a little help from her friends including her guardian gargoyle and a worldwide secret society.
Quest with a traveler, a warrior and a watcher as they befriend gargoyles, run from ‘droids, expose secrets, escape riots, fight to save L.A. and protect our independence.
Los Angeles may never be the same.

One of the ways I like to look at the world are through inspirations. Moments, thoughts and ideas that give me a taste of delight. Songs, books, stories and shows. It’s terrific when someone’s writing I respect and find inspiring writes about something I, too, find worth cogitating on. You know, that mental chewing that … Continue reading “Inspirations”
