I’d like to introduce you to yet another member of the 540 writers community. My special guest Althea Damgaard and I celebrate the launch of her debut novel entitled Champions of Light. If you watch the YouTube video, you’ll see Althea decked out in her 540 writers community t-shirt. Come along and celebrate with us in the comfort of your living room, or while you’re walking, jogging, running errands or doing one of the many tasks needing to get done by either clicking on the video link above or listening to the podcast episode on your favorite podcast player.
Althea has always loved writing stories and reading since she was a kid. Now disabled with Multiple Sclerosis, she spends most of her time writing, reading and improving her craft. Her go to fiction is fantasy and science fiction, but she will read any story that promises some adventure and the need to overcome. When not doing that, she is spending time with her husband and family, playing with her cats or playing games.
Althea’s debut novel is entitled Champions of Light.
Darkness strangles a kingdom. Can those destined to rule overcome it in time?
Runaway Rhoanda, betrayed by her father for arranging her marriage without telling her, should have expected it. Winter hangs on in the mountains, closing the pass to the west. Caught stealing, the city watch takes her to the Cathedral of Light. She learns the truth about the Light while trying to hide her identity. Her parents would use her as an excuse to attack this kingdom.
Sergeant Vern can’t shake his desire to drink nor his anger at the Lord of Light for letting his sister die young. He continues to work under his alias, but time is running out. A treacherous spring thaw and the Dark endangers the kingdom. Angels weep and shift positions in a mural fulfilling prophecy. Vern must change his view of the Light so he can step into his true role.
Will they find enough faith in the Light to overcome their trials and save a kingdom?
