Arlington, Texas (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Seattle native T.M. Franklin wanted to create a unique story that would transport her readers to that place of dreams and wonderment that we often leave behind as we become adults. “I think everybody thought maybe they had super powers when they were kids. We all had that moment when we just knew we could fly or make things move with our minds if we only tried hard enough. I wanted to write a story where it was true.” says Franklin.
Ava Michaels used to think she was special. As a child, she fantasized about having magical powers . . . making things happen. But Ava grew up and eventually accepted the fact that her childish dreams were just that, and maybe a normal life wasn't so bad after all.
Now a young college student, Ava meets Caleb Foster, a brilliant and mysterious man who’s supposed to help her pass Physics, but in reality has another mission in mind. What he shows Ava challenges her view of the world, shaking it to its very core. Because Caleb isn't quite what he seems. In fact, he's not entirely human, and he's not the only one.
Together, the duo faces a threat from an ancient race bound to protect humans, but only after protecting their own secrets—secrets they fear Ava may expose. Fighting to survive, Ava soon learns she's not actually normal . . . she's not even just special.
She's a little bit more.
MORE by T.M. Franklin is a young adult, paranormal romance that was inspired by little known biblical events. “The concept for the storyline came from references to the mysterious Nephilim in the book of Genesis,” says Franklin. “It says “sons of God” went to “daughters of men” and had children with them. This reference is right before God decides to do away with the wickedness in the world with the Great Flood. It was the idea of these “sons of God” being punished for their intimacy with humans that led to the idea of the Race and the Half-Breeds.”
MORE by T.M. Franklin promises to whisk her readers away from the daily grind as the mind plays in the magical world Franklin has created. This first book in a planned trilogy will leave the audience longing for MORE. Themes that are explored in MORE are:
Being willing to stand up for what is right, even if it goes against what you were raised to believe.
There is a strength within each of us, even if we’re not aware of it. If we can find a way to tap that strength, we can make a difference.
Prejudice and fear go hand in hand, and even the most advanced societies must deal with both.
About the Author:
T.M. Franklin started out her career writing non-fiction in a television newsroom. Graduating with a B.A. in communications specializing in broadcast journalism and production, she worked for nine years as a major market television news producer, and garnered two regional Emmy Awards, before she resigned to be a full-time mom and part-time freelance writer. After writing and unsuccessfully querying a novel that she now admits, “is not that great,” she decided to follow the advice of one of the agents who turned her down—write some more and get better at it. Her first published novel, MORE, was born during National Novel Writing month, a challenge to write a novel in thirty days.
She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, Mike, is mom to two boys, Justin and Ryan, and has an enormous black dog named Rocky who’s always lying nearby while she’s writing. Whether he’s soothed by the clicking of the computer keys or just waiting for someone to rub his belly is up for debate.
