Name: Maria Lucia
Name of Book: Liberation, Book One of the Andrusian Chronicles
I have been in the Washington D.C. metro area for the last few years. Since my arrival I’ve become very involved in the story of how this nation became what it is. It has caused me to go beyond the political arena for answers to real issues. It has evoked a deep sense of caring for this nation and our planet’s future. Living here makes folks explore that often. While I was visiting the different monuments and returning to them often, scenes for the book began coming into my consciousness.
The places mentioned in Liberation are real places in the city and spaces where I saw the scenes occurring. It is my passion for what occurred here 234 years ago that began the inspiration for this manuscript. My passion for the exploration of our galaxy and the study of the universe expanded it and my obsession for Dr. Michio Kaku that gave it form. According to him, and he is one of the leading physicist, multi dimensions are a reality. Realities that we cannot see can be affecting us every day.
That combined with humanity’s current hunger for more expansion and the desire for sustainability for our planet, ignited a fantastic story that has become Liberation, Book One of the Andrusian Chronicles.
This paranormal fantasy challenges the readers to explore different realities than the ones they are accustomed to exploring. It makes them think and question if the entire story could be true. It takes on a journey that touches them deep inside and ignites them. Many readers have not been able to put the book down once they start it.
Liberation is for those of us that love other worldly places. It’s for those of us that get inspired by the things that go beyond our senses and our visual capability. This fantasy is a creation of what might could be as a future that is not based on destruction and what we might have to do to get there. It makes the reader look at the larger picture and the powerful forces both for good and evil that lay hidden in a dual world such as earth. My inspiration came from wanting to know the answers to the questions that lay deep within my soul, from wanting to see things in a more expanded way. It caused me to create a story that addresses the current times.
Creative people draw from all around them, from their lives, their love affairs, their friends and engagement with the world around them and from what they are drawn to as a result. I got inspired that way, by whatever touched me about our current existence on this awesome planet, and in this nation, good or bad!
