Meet Lanaia Lee, author of Of Atlantis. Not only has she beaten the odds in getting a book published, but she's beaten the odds and survived a stroke at age 35. Though this left her in a wheelchair, she persevered instead of letting this defeat her. "I still rock and roll, and I mean literally roll!"
None of this has affected her creativity. Check out the synopsis of her book Of Atlantis.
"Of Atlantis is an epic, fantasy novel based on the king of Atlantis known as
Archimedes. For some strange reason Archimedes is blessed with a source of
untapped power. His mother, Cheris, knows the truth, but his father, King
Linus does not, making him very fearful of the young prince, his only son. In
this first book, we follow Archimedes from his childhood, until he is crowned
king, marries and has children of his own.
His mother, Cheris, endures a loveless marriage out of a sense of duty to her
subjects and to her only son, Archimedes, who she values more than life itself.
The continent of Atlantis is comprised of multiple countries with five other
kings. Political turmoil is rampant and war is always a threat to mankind.
Before that devastating day when the ocean swallowed the entire continent,
they share the joy and strife of life in Atlantis. However, one trusted advisor to
the king proves to be a formidable archenemy. He knows and covets the
awesome powers of Archimedes - his name is Uric.
After the devastation, which Uric and Archimedes survive because of the
special powers they both possess, including their gift of eternal life, Uric
pursues Archimedes throughout history attempting to steal his power, growing
progressively stronger with time.
But Archimedes was proud, he was regal, he was Of Atlantis."
Don't miss out on her talent. Her second book, Skulls of Salvation, will be out in Mid Feb 2009. It is a tale about the search for the Crystal Skulls of Belize and the effort to prevent the destruction of earth as predicted in the Mayan Doomsday Prophecy.
