Welcome

Legend isn’t about people. It’s about pursuing a dream or higher ideal. About believing in something impossible and transforming the belief into reality through faith and hard work. The future is a legend written and unwritten.

Do You Believe in Legend?

This all started with a simple idea, write a horse story and publish it. Now the universe has grown to include a series, possibly two, and many more ideas. Because I needed time for exploring my creativity and wanted a central place to share it, I had to consolidate a few things.

What happened to Right the Writer?

Right the Writer was a wonderful six year journey of honing my craft as a writer. Although I loved having a hosted, minimal-maintenance WordPress site, I began feeling the “no plugins allowed” constraint after releasing Spirit of the Lone Horse. Moving it during the consolidation process was a logical choice. Don’t worry, nothing other than an overcomplicated footer was lost.

The books, so far…

In Spirit of the Lone Horse, the first in the Stars of Heros series, we are introduced to Jo Mason and her family. Jo is faced with the choice of running away from her fear or taking back control of her life. Her decision begins an adventure that weaves a tapestry through past mistakes and regrets, present circumstances and consequences, and future hopes and dreams.

The Masons’ story continues in Do You Believe in Legend? It seems Jo’s destiny is surviving a chaotic world she can’t control. That is until a man from the future falls into her lap, both literally and figuratively. Jo hopes he can give her some answers. There is only one slight problem… He doesn’t remember anything about himself or his life and what he does, doesn’t help.

Besides SOH, I’m also working on a YA Fantasy trilogy (series?).

What’s in a Brand?

Branding sets companies, organizations, and writers apart from one another. It’s meant to be focused and on point. However, like anything where experts offer advice, sometimes contradictory, it can leave one lost, confused, and running around in circles. In this post, I address some issues that might be affecting my brand.

Writing Bad Things as a Good Person

I’m an animal lover who believes in do no harm to my fellow human being or any creature that I come in contact with, but I write stories that contain violence against man and beast. In this world where darkness and light are a part of life, it would be unrealistic and unbelievable if I didn’t. Even with this stance, I still have a moral dilemma that keeps rearing its head.

About Me

Check out Ani’s events and video appearances

Born and raised in Southern California, the diagnosis of hydrocephalus at birth should have killed Ani, or worse, left her blank to the world. Her strength of spirit, parents’ love, and a miracle all combined to overcome that prognosis within nine months. From this almost impossible beginning, she has developed into all-around person with the technical knowledge and analytical mind of a programmer, creative and detailed orientation of a writer/editor, and aesthetic instincts of a designer/photographer.

Her writing career started when a friend in Cyprus made her promise to stop throwing away her writings because she thought they weren’t good enough. After returning to the States, she set out to finish a single horse story and get it published. However, the book, like the writer, needed time to mature.

While perfecting her craft, Ani graduated from San Francisco State with a BA in Industrial Arts and worked several jobs from retail sales to human resources project management. Her innate ability to learn new computer programs with minimal instruction and need to be creative led to her current long-term stint as a web designer and developer.
