Guest’s Bio:

I’m A. K. Frailey, a published author of 15 books. The majority are historical sci-fi where people of ancient times struggle to find meaning in a world dominated by evil choices. While managing their own conflicts, aliens fight for their place in human events. Movie director and producer Cary Solomon endorsed me with the summary, “Ann’s work ranks among the best.” I’ve been writing for over a decade and host podcasts of my short stories and life reflections. Since I was widowed 8 years ago, I have raised my 8 kids and discovered that epic trials forge epic heroes.
