As I wrote the outline for the second and third book for my series ‘The Sound of the Stones’, it became abundantly clear that Frankie was an integral part of the story. Although she’s in modern times, her story quickly overlaps with the prehistoric tale where Ashra fights for human freedom from the darkness that threatens to take hold. I can’t wait to show you how!

This is Frankie: She didn’t remember stopping, but there she stood, her face pressed against the glass. Boxes littered the floor and countertop. She watched her hand in wonder as it reached for the door. She couldn’t deny her urge to enter the book store one last time.
