Teenager Lisa Herbert lives in the small town of Mountain View on the planet Fairfield. The “Savage Rain” decades earlier shut down the hyperspace gate and isolated her world.

BEC'S REVIEW


Lisa’s Way is a science fiction story told from the perspective of a young woman who wants more from her life.

One day in the library she finds a book that talks abo

I enjoyed the story, but would have enjoyed more at the start of the book concerning the several decades of "the Savage Rain" that closed all of the gates that traveled from one world to another. Except for the typos this is a well written book.

I write science fiction and fantasy. I'm presently writing novels and novellas.

I've sold SF/F short stories to periodicals such as Marion Zimmer Bradley's Fantasy Magazine; Tales of the Talisman; Space Westerns; Golden Visions; and Sorcerous Signals. I have just over 110 total short story sales as of April 2015.

I've also written books and articles about Kansas history.
