Who are you? they asked. I’m me, who I’ve always been. Always on the inside. Not always on the outside. At least, not until I cried. Who are you now? they asked. I’m me, the me inside set free. It took a long time, too many years did I hide, but now I smile on the inside. ©December 2020 Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
