Dear Reader,

People often ask me why I write about the Heartland, a mythical country.

The Heartland is a place where characters journey toward a new understanding of their identity. Brittney Eldras takes only her falcon as she leaves to explore the Heartland. She plans to search for a missing bell. Instead, she finds her destiny.

Writing this story was also a journey toward learning more about myself. I wonder what you will find out about yourself as you read Britt's story?
