“All my life, I’ve gravitated to fantasy stories, stories I felt I could be a part of, where I could completely immerse myself in my imagination.” – Jacquitta A. McManus

Jacquitta A. McManus, a little girl from Kentucky, was always drawn to fantasy stories. It was a way for her to engage in exciting adventures in faraway lands she would otherwise never experience. As she got older she found that immersing herself in those tales in her childhood would lead her to writing her own. Ms. McManus is the author of two full-length children’s fantasy adventure stories: Labyrinth’s Door–Anyia, Dream of a Warrior, and Talee and the Fallen Object.

“We are not defined by our mistakes, but how we react to them and the life journey we create despite of them.”
Jacquitta A McManus

“I do believe in most of the traditions. And my father is to be respected … he is a man of gravitas. I just don’t know how I can be the daughter he expects while still following my own heart. My own dreams,” she said.”
Jacquitta A. McManus, Labyrinth's Door - Anyia "Dream of a Warrior"

“Anyia grunted as she looked over at Dek. “Everyone comes here looking for honor. But all they really should hope to find is a mindless way of living in the eye of tradition.”
Jacquitta A. McManus, Labyrinth's Door - Anyia "Dream of a Warrior"

“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.”
Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

“Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”
Narcotics Anonymous

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

“We are not defined by our mistakes, but how we react to them and the life journey we create despite of them.”

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
