River

Overview

It begins. Somewhere. An insignificant trickle of water.

And it changes.

And it grows up, and gathers a history, and finds its way into atlases and maps, until it finally reaches the sea, and vanishes into its vastness.

You might think it of no importance. That it does not matter.

Overview

It begins. Somewhere. An insignificant trickle of water.

And it changes.

And it grows up, and gathers a history, and finds its way into atlases and maps, until it finally reaches the sea, and vanishes into its vastness.

You might think it of no importance. That it does not matter.

But you follow where it leads...

Rivers have always been very important to humankind. They've been explored. They've been navigated. They've been called gods. They've been blessed and cursed and venerated and used and enjoyed and exploited and polluted since the beginning of recorded history.

They've been sung about and dreamed about and followed on epic journeys of discovery. They capitals of empires have risen on the banks of rivers - and so have a thousand fishing villages, and river landings, and water mills.

There is only one River. Really. And it's all of them. Every river is dfferent - and yet they're all the same, vast and full of life and death and mystery and history and adventure and quiet dreams.

Full of life. Full of mystery. Full of stories.

Meet the Author

Alma Alexander, the 'Duchess of Fantasy,' was born with ink in her veins in a town on the banks of an ancient river in a country which no longer exists. When she was ten, her family moved to Africa and since then she has lived in several countries on four continents.

She is also quite comfortable in the new continent of cyberspace. Several years ago she was living in New Zealand when she met a man on an Internet bulletin board for writers, married him and moved to America.

She has written more than two million words and one of her novels, "The Secrets of Jin-shei," has been published around the world 14 languages. The heroine of her popular Young Adult Worldweavers series is as American as Harry Potter is British.

Alma is a punaholic and a chronic worrier, one of those people who proves that real pessimists are truly born and not made. She is owned by two cats.
