Short biography
Rites of passage have always fascinated me, and I think one of the greatest is moving from child to teenager. Our minds are so impressionable at this time, and what we experience shapes our adult life in ways we can't even imagine when it happens. I am also deeply convinced that we live in a magical world and that help is only a prayer away. We all have the potential to be "superheroes" and do not have to be "extra special" to create an awesome destiny for ourselves. And I want young adults and kids to know that. And for everyone else to remember it.

That is why I wrote THE JOURNEYS OF JOHN AND JULIA, a sci-fi/fantasy series about a seemingly mismatched pair of teens who have to use their different perceptions of the world to make the best of all the challenging situations adolescence poses. On top of it, and unbeknownst to them, they have been chosen by a powerful consortium of magical beings called The Twenty-Two to save the world from the beyond-evil corporate-superpower overlord Niem Vidalgo Oten, who plans to enslave every human being on the planet.

The first book in the series sees John and Julia cracking open the door to another reality. The second book, which is coming soon, brings them face to face with The Twenty-Two and their own destiny. Over the course of a seven-book arc, John and Julia will receive superhero training from The Twenty-Two and do battle with the enemy, while at the same time navigating their way through the very down-to-earth pressures of family, friends, their conflicted feelings for each other, and the bittersweet path to self-knowledge.

That line of thought brings me back to my fascination with rites of passage: Because no matter what our year-count says, whenever we initiate true change inside of us, we are initiated into something new. New skills, new outlook, new opportunities - an honest-to-God upgrade in the game of life. We NEVER lose this potential!

Thanks for reading. --Aurelia
