About the Author

J. W. Lolite is an author from Alabama. Lolite has received multiple accolades for the books of the Circumstellar series.

Math and science were my favorite subjects in school, but I couldn't deny my fondness for fantasy and science fiction novels. More than that, I often found my mind preferred drifting into the clouds and new worlds of my own creation. One of those worlds finally got to breathe life. When I first started putting Circumstellar on paper, it was a whole new experience for me. It was a struggle brushing up on all of the grammar and punctuation, but it was also a fascinating learning experience. All of the research into ancient Sumerian culture really taught me some interesting myths and legends. Writing Circumstellar has certainly been an exciting journey.

Reviewed by Michelle Randall for Readers' Favorite Ingrid has always been a bit different; her eyes are purple, and there aren't that many of those around and then, of course, there is the fact that they have a sort of glow to them. But her Aunt Kaline won't say anything about it, won't talk about her parents to her or about much of anything else for that matter. So Ingrid counts on her best friends Lesia and Ty for what she needs in life. They have been best friends since the time Ingrid moved to Dust Veil and they have always been there for her. As things begin to get strange, and she uncovers information about her parents, they are still there for her and it turns out there are reasons the three of them were drawn to each other in the first place. J.W. Lolite brings the story of a child of mixed parentage, who has some secrets and the abilities to help, but doesn't know it yet in Circumstellar. It is more a story of the loyalty of friendship and family than the other worldliness of the parentage. Circumstellar is a great story for teens and young adults. Although it covers the popular ideal of a child who has special abilities but was raised as a human child and only finds out in their teens, it is not about those abilities as much as it is about the loyalty of the friendships, the family and the connections to people. The abilities are secondary and don't play much of a role in the story; in fact they are hardly developed and are not in play in what Ingrid needs to do. Friendship and loyalty decide what happens. J.W. Lolite gives the reader a story that will attract the young reader because of the genre, but attract the parents because of the message, and delight both with the story.

I recently received this book from a relative, and boy what a treat! It's a great mix between fantasy and sci-fi, and has a little of everything else blended in there. I love the characters and the story is just like nothing I've read before. It so fresh and there's alot  of work into the back. I will be recommending this to all my friends! And I can't wait for a sequel.
