THE FORGOTTEN ONES (Book One) by Laura Howard

About “The Forgotten Ones: Book 1 (The Danaan Trilogy)“ Allison O’Malley’s plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother.

Author Interview: Michael R. Hicks

Michael R. Hicks. Author, RVer, and wearer of FiveFinger shoes. Website:   AuthorMichaelHicks.com Twitter:    @KreelanWarrior What is your genre? MH: With my first book, IN HER NAME, I started out in what could best be described as science fiction with a heavy dose of high fantasy and a bit of romance mixed in, or maybe it’s futuristic romance with sci-fi/fantasy elements. That’s the kicker: it’s a bit hard to stick in a particular category. There are currently six books in the series, plus two trilogy collections (one of which will be published soon), and there’ll be more coming down the pike. SEASON OF THE HARVEST is a sci-fi thriller, and my next book, which I’ve tentatively titled LEAP INTO HELL (although that may change) is a historical romance set in Wor...
