A Word on Wanderlust
The Wanderlust series began with a concept that
I have pondered over for years- things never change. The first book- Love &
Hate was more than a book I wanted to write; I needed to write it!
The series explores the connection between the human condition, our deepest
desires, convoluted and warring emotions, and the inner demons that shape and
influence our lives. Wanderlust is the experience of living a tesseract life:
forever trapped in the vicious cycle of distortion- a false reality. I wanted to
expand on the idea that reflections of the past haunt our present state and the
future likewise will continue in the same redundant and stagnant manner if we
never conquer ourselves.
Wanderlust is a place of no escape- we travel through our lives, aimlessly,
searching for purpose and meaning. Often times, I wondered how the devils and
demons of our past effect the outcome of our present, when what we love is
jaded, empty, and lost.
We wander for the unforgotten. We wander for our dreams. We wander because we
can’t let go. I’ve learned to embrace Wanderlust; I’ve relived it with ink and
paper. In time we must all embrace our inner demons because things never change.
Love & Loyalty- Autumn’s love and loyalty are put through a series of tests spanning across Europe as she fleas Osnaburg and the ghosts that haunt her past.
