Memories of Chronosalis
by Ceara Comeau
Genre: SciFi Fantasy
It’s one thing to read about heroes saving worlds in far oﬀ galaxies, but to become one is an entirely different story. Sixteen-year-old Amber Oak wanted nothing more than to stay in her own world of music and solitude. But the inhabitants of Galaseya, a Utopian planet rooted in the past, had other ideas in mind. According to them, only she wielded the power to stop the dark forces threatening their home. At ﬁrst, Amber sympathized with the planet, but saw no reason to involve herself in the aﬀairs of something outside her world. But the stakes have risen when she discovers that Galaseya is not only the world that has been invading her dreams, but also the place her estranged family originated from. With this new knowledge, questions began to surface and secrets of Amber’s life come to light causing her to second guess everything she knows.
I’ve been writing stories since I can remember. Stories, I thought, were just for children my age and I did not think they would go far. At fifteen years old, I was proven wrong. My parents took a look at my stories and saw something in them that I could not see. They saw the potential of a good book, or two!
With my Dad as the editor and my Mom doing the formatting, we self-published these books. I did not think anyone, other than my family, would want to read the ramblings of a young teenager. When we published “Amber Oak Mysteries Volume 1” and “Adventures of the Young and Curious,” I was fifteen years old, then the unexpected happened. People would write to me and they told me how much they loved my books.
During the time, when I was seventeen, I stopped writing. I lost faith in myself and my ability to write. But , my mom suggested that we publish my third book, for it had been sitting on the shelf for about two years. She thought it would be good to get it out there, before I started college. I did not see what harm it could do, so my third book, “Amber Oak Mysteries Volume 2” was published. In 2012 I published “Amber Oak and the Missing Links”. I went on to publish “Amber Oak and the Master of Illusions”. In 2015 I published something different call “The Lost Journal of Erika Traynor”. These is currently available on lulu.com, amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.
Recently I realized I needed to go back and redo the original Amber Oak Mystery series. It had potential, but I knew I could do better. It will be different than the originals as it focuses more on science fiction and fantasy rather than mystery. The title of the book is “Memories of Chronosalis”.
