About the Author

Although Sabrina Rawson had been physically writing for two years, the ideas that conceived her first novel had been percolating in her mind for many years. In many ways, she found life experiences had influenced her story although it is written in fantasy format.

Nelson Mandela’s words inspired her: “There is no passion to be found playing small -– in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

No truer words could have been said. After her first cancer battle four years ago, she was in the mindset to survive, get back into the swing of things. Problem was she couldn’t. She wasn’t the same person anymore. She relapsed by the end of the first year. She survived that experience exhausted and has had multiple tumors pop up ever since. To say her health presented a mental and physical challenge was putting it mildly. She wanted to be more, do more, and was determined to reinvent herself along the way.

What she left behind after that first surgery was her passion for life. Cancer didn’t take that away; she buried it along with her drive and ambition. Her creative muse happily skipped right along with the rest of her dreams, leaving her disconnected. She had to rediscover herself, and it was a slow personal process. It's now four years past her first surgery, and even if she had to do it all over again tomorrow, so what! She refused to settle for a life less than what she could create for herself.

Sabrina has published works with Survivor’s Review Online Magazine and Titan InKorp Online eMag. She has published two novels within a New Adult Urban Fantasy Romance called A Novel of Four Realms, titled Briksanna’s Sacrifice (Book One) and Katerina’s Hope (Book Two). Book Three is due to publish in early spring 2015.

Sabrina lives in Sonoma County, heart of the wine country of California, enjoying life in the rural land and happily married to a wonderful, supportive husband. You can always find her reading a book or cooking a meal for her multitude of children.
