there have emerged “special ones”, separate from the masses, whose
collective souls were nurtured by the creative process. Artists,
composers and writers whose masterpieces fueled legends, whose melodies
and monologues made kings weep and wonder. Brave men and women who
dared to place their dreams and desires upon papyrus and paper; the
keepers of antiquity.
Alayna Carew desperately wanted to be a a published author. To
that end, she attended and graduated from Long Ridge Writer’s Group,
Writer’s Digest’s Novel Writing and Advanced Novel Writing courses.
Those classes released her inner muse and that muse inspired her to
study the medieval periods of Japanese and Chinese cultures, with an
emphasis on courtesans and concubines.
Alayna authored the short stories, “The City on the Edge of Forever”
and “The Antiquator’s Folly”.
