Overview

The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear by M. Pax

The journey into adulthood is stranger than she expects. A new adult science fiction fantasy.

Hetty Locklear lives in a geek girl fantasy where she is the savior of a dying ancient galactic race. When she's not role playing in the exotic game world she created, she dreams of being the new It Girl with suave clothes, hundreds of friends, hunks galore falling at her slippered feet, awesome parties, and a job to make every person in the cosmos drool.

Instead she's stuck at the convenience store wearing stretchy clothes to fit over the paunch formed from a steady diet of donuts and coffee and with a social calendar as empty as deep space. In her whole life she's only acquired two friends -- a cousin, who barely counts, and her best friend since grade school.

Hetty is banking on graduation from community college to transform her into a full-fledged woman. It doesn't. It gets her an unflattering coffee stain down the front of her gown and an invitation from her parents to visit. Estranged since they went gallivanting off to fulfill their dream of working the Renaissance Faire circuit, Hetty isn't eager to see them. However, this trip is the best chance she has to repair their broken relationship.

A steamy romance with her boss or the handsome stranger she met at the coffee shop would cure her doldrums, but she's stuck with the annoying Sir Gnat and is stalked by a ghost. The invisible stranger leads her to a reality she finds hard to believe. It also leads to love and a better relationship with herself.

Hetty is a real-world geeky girl trying to figure out her place in an adult world, while escaping the harsh realities by playing fantasy games with her friends. Mysterious events soon sweep her along a different path, one that challenges Hetty to rise above her preconceived notions of what it means to graduate from college and grow up. This is a fun beginning to a new series, filled with foibles and embarrassing moments for Hetty, as well as romance and triumph. Add in ghostly visitors, strange parents and several potential suitors and you have the makings of a roller coaster ride filled with excitement.
