You can find out more about me and my books at tswelti.com.

Tania liked a quote
Romeo and Juliet by Rebecca Lisle
“When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.”
William Shakespeare

Tania and 2 other people liked Kascha's review of Darklandia:
Darklandia by T.S. Welti
"I'm sort of at a loss as to what to really rate this book. Not because it is not good; it is very engaging. Because it is in fact, engaging.

I've read several reviews now that I've finished the book that place it as a hybrid of The Matrix and 1984,..." Read more of this review »
Parallel Spirits by T.S. Welti
"What a lovely book with many twists and turns that aren't expected and an interesting take on the spirit world. I enjoyed to see the different relationships in Belinda's life grow. The end of the book was happy, but not the usual sappy kind. I can..." Read more of this review »

“An educated mind is a questioning mind. Or is it?”
T.S. Welti, The Fifth Specter

“When there's nothing left to save, there's nothing left to lose.”
T.S. Welti, Left Behind

“The first step of any journey must be taken with daring in your heart. Don't let fear clog your arteries.”
T.S. Welti

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
Marcel Proust

“I mean, they say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time.”

“Books make great gifts because they have whole worlds inside of them. And it's much cheaper to buy somebody a book than it is to buy them the whole world!”
Neil Gaiman

“Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.”
Markus Zusak, I Am the Messenger

“The worst part of holding the memories is not the pain. It's the loneliness of it. Memories need to be shared.”
Lois Lowry, The Giver

Grammar*Kitten Hey - I was saddened and excited in equal measure to hear of your genre-jumping plans - I hope you'll let me know under which pen name you'll be writing so I can read whatever your next project will be (I love dystopian, but I'm not fussy with regards to genre - I'll read anything, especially if I know it's by an author I enjoy!)
