A story about good vs evil locked in a battle where good cannot afford to lose. After two young boys move into their new family home, they quite accidentally discover a passageway to another dimension (Universe).

There the malevolent forces of evil can hopefully be put to rest once and for all.

Introducing T. L. Howard, author of The Final Choosing

“Under the premise from which Outskirts Press operates, the service provided is excellent.”

From the first day she can remember, T. L. Howard has been fascinated with the “what-ifs” in life, sometimes to the point of distraction. Early on, she found the only way she could satisfy this curiosity was to write, to create worlds and fill them with people living out the “what-ifs” her mind insisted on conjuring. To this day, she can’t stop creating worlds based on the “what-ifs.” Born and educated in the state of Nebraska, she currently resides there where she is employed at the university. Her first two books, “The Crystal Key” and “Corryn’s Stone” created the world and brought Mirah and her companions to life sending them on life altering adventures. The Final Choosing, the last book in this series, takes them on yet another quest which will forever change the world. When not writing, which is seldom as demonstrated by her bad housekeeping, she enjoys needlework, walking, and a good movie.

Book description…

Travel in the spring is lovely, unless you are racing against time to prevent a catastrophe of unimaginable proportions. From simple shopkeeper to Deceris’ Chosen to ruler of the nation of Decera, Mirah’s life has been anything but ordinary. Now she must face her biggest challenge yet; an ancient prophecy brought to life by an old enemy who outwits her at every turn; a prophecy that could annihilate time itself. But buried in that prophecy is a terrible truth; for the gods are not what they seem and the very core of human belief is about to be rewritten. With time running out and her own subjects acting against her, Mirah will have to listen to the voices of the dead and her own companions-instead of the god to whom she’s devoted her life-if she is to succeed.

Book description…

Twin Flames is more than a love story. It’s a cross-culture, cross-dimension, and cross-time story of longing that shows the effects of unenlightened use of personal subtle energies. When two innocents, members of the First Nation People, are torn apart, it seems their love is doomed. But with unwavering determination, the lovers Ahhatome and Lily, formerly known as Little Bear/Two Bears and Sings To Flowers, propel themselves through adventures of emotion, mind, and past-life memory, where two beings are more than soul mates. They are transcendent, timeless twin souls-they are “Twin Flames.” This moving and thought-provoking book reminds us that our bodies are not only ephemeral vehicles for our time here on earth, but also a temporary home for our spirits and our love-which are eternal.
