Lonna Lisa Williams has been writing since she was four years old, after her father died, when her mother collected the poems she spoke. In love with words, Lonna wrote childhood stories and plays, eventually publishing novels. "Like a Tree Planted" is science fiction, and "Selah of the Summit" is fantasy. "Crossing the Chemo Room," "I Saw You in the Moon," and "Fire and Ice" tell her true "Survival Stories." She got her Master's degree in English at San Diego State University and has published poems, essays, and articles in various magazines and newspapers. A journalist and photographer, Lonna enjoys making Youtube videos (LonnaLisaWilliams' Channel). She posts new photos and writing on Facebook and her website, www.lonnawilliams.com. After losing her childhood family, surviving cancer, almost dying in a car accident, and watching her family and life in California burn up after a bitter divorce, Lonna found a new life teaching English overseas. Her four children live in California, and she visits them when she can. Her motto is that Christ's light can shine in the darkest places, and that after death comes resurrection.
Selah Of The Summitby Lonna Lisa Williams
Selah is a slavegirl who fetches water from a well. She sees the distant mountains and imagines things she has never known--like trees, stars, lakes, and snow. Her Master Regan and The Craft have kept nature from the valleys, damning rivers and turning all to desert. They weave their material spells upon the slaves, and nothing ever changes. Then, one day, Regan summons Selah to serve him at a banquet. As she fills a goblet, a stranger in a hooded cloak speaks to her and gives her one unmelted snowflake. That very night, the stranger named Micah leads Selah outside the Keep and across the valley, to meet a band of travelers. They journey through hills, moors, and highlands to Mountain Gate. Selah finds beauty, music, and love in the mountains. Regan and his soldiers follow, capture Selah, and imprison her again. She must face loneliness and The Craft to reunite with Micah and journey to the Summit.

Good book. It had one bad word that wasn't needed. However, it's a great story. I have read it twice and love it!
