Escape can embolden your soul – or destroy it.
Val Masterson created Vigdis in order to escape the drudgery of her life. Instead, Vigdis starts living it.
Val and Karl's house is destroyed by a hurricane and her husband reveals he can't have children. Desperate to forget her troubles, Val writes a historical romance novel set in Iceland, rife with sorcery, sexy Vikings, a volcano, and a big family loaded with dangerous alliances--all of which is about to erupt. Val's dreams reveal historical details she can't possibly know, details which prove to be factual, which both frightens and tempts her.
Her obsession with writing puts a strain on her already troubled marriage, but she’s terrified of being on her own. In her novel, Val becomes Vigdis. She evades two amorous brothers and the black magic of their sorcerous, drunken father. But, the line between past and present grows blurred as Vigdis lives everything Val dreams of – true love, children, and family. Val must decide whether to resurrect the shambles of her marriage or take her chance in Iceland to discover if her dreams truly do come from the past.
Can she find vicarious solace and satisfaction in her fictional creation? Or will the escape take over and subsume her?

About the Author
Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were.
She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth.
Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.
