Unique New Romantic Series — Blind Writer Tells her Life Story as a Romantic Fantasy
UNIQUE NEW ROMANTIC SERIES
Blind Writer Tells her Life Story in a New Romantic Series
By Belle Parrott, Editor, Aeon Enterprises
The Spirian Saga may be written as a fantasy, but in truth, many of the events in Rowena Portch’s new romantic series were based on her life story. As unbelievable as these events may seem, they really did happen. “I’ve lived an amazing life,” says Rowena. “I wanted to share it with others in an engaging way.”
Her original book, entitled, This is Not the Life I Ordered!, met a fatal demise when her hard drive became corrupted. Sitting around the campfire at their home on Harstine Island one evening, her family convinced her that the story would be much more engaging and believable if it was written as a story as opposed to an auto-biography. The Spirian Saga was born and starts with Protected, Spirian Saga Book 1:
On the Olympic Peninsula in Washington, a spiritual war brews among the Spirian race. During one of the many conflicts, clan leader Khalen was forced to kill his mate after she was seduced by the Shadows. Now, he vows to banish them from his territory forever, but like most adversaries, if you kill one, many take its place.
His soul lingers in a dark turmoil of mistrust and vengeance until a most unexpected female enters his life. Skye’s innocent nature awakens a protective drive in Khalen that both surprises and terrifies him. Despite his attempts to keep her safe, her unique gifts have attracted the Shadows attention. Can he protect her or will the Shadows claim another life and take what is left of his hollow soul?
What makes this new romantic series unique is that the stories are appropriate for a wide audience, including young adults. They do not contain inappropriate language or graphical sex scenes. Each story offers inspirational insights to issues we face every day. When Rowena was asked why she wrote this series so far out of the current trend of more erotic romances, she said, “I wanted to write a new romantic series based on what I like to read. I have nothing against erotic romances, I just enjoy a good non-graphical story now and then with strong romantic qualities.”
Protected, Spirian Saga Book 1, (ISBN: 978-0615703817) is available in paperback, ebook formats, and is currently being produced as an audio book. Read a free excerpt of this book on Rowena’s website: http://rowenaportch.com/book-excerpts/.
About the Author:
Rowena Portch (Silverdale, WA) started writing at a young age, feeling an inherent need to tell stories that inspire and reflect aspects of life that are rarely considered.
Being a descendant of James Hudson Taylor, author and founder of the China Inland Mission, Rowena comes from a long line of story tellers. The tradition of writing continues through her daughter, Erika.
Rowena’s goal is to inspire others to tell their stories and share the wonderful gift and adventure of life. She often speaks before groups, sharing her experiences of writing and telling stories. It is a passion of hers that she shares with her mate, Gregg.
Though she is over seventy-five percent blind, she doesn’t allow that to derail her ambitions. Her husband is deaf, so they make the perfect pair. They live on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington with her guide dog Skye-Bear.
