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.

Book Dreams (Volume #1) is an anthology of short stories and poems featured in the 2017 Brain to Books Cyber Convention and Book Expo.

A Little History

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.

A Few Planned Changes

I'm constantly observing and reworking things based on what I learn. And right now, I'm seeing a few things on this site that are a little annoying. Maybe not to casual observer, but definitely to me as a web developer.

Keeping my word for 26 years (and counting)

On July 2, 1989, at a science fiction convention in San Francisco, I found a vendor creating custom glass work. I asked him to make me a special glass and then made a promise to not drink out of it until certain things happened.

Sunday’s vacation from technology

Technology is how I make a living. On Sunday, I used it strictly for pleasure, including reading a book on writing.

About Me

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.
