VANESSA anxiously waits for her birthday, a boyfriend and some much needed excitement in her dull and boring life.
She soon finds herself torn between two guys. Well, I guess that is what she would call them, even though one is a dead Alien King.
MAX, a dead alien who is trapped in limbo between two worlds and longs for Vanessa, his destiny, to help him home and become his Queen. He offers her his world, his heart and his future.
TOBY, a good looking guy who shows an interest and a desire to be with Vanessa, has confessed that he too has a destiny that he’s meant to be with another. However, it’s a destiny he doesn’t want.
The connection that Vanessa has with Max is strong but the desire she has for Toby may be even stronger.
Will she accept what Destiny has in store for her or find a way to escape to find one all on her own?
I’m a huge sci-fi fan. I love all the paranormal, fantasy and sci-fi genres, of course, when romance is thrown in, it just makes it even better.
I grew up with a desire to write. Now being considered a middle-aged woman I have decided I’m running out of time. I stopped taking for granted the amount of time I have left to live and take matters into my own hands by actually working on a dream.
Writing a novel, Destiny Unhinged. It’s a great feeling to say I’m not just waiting for life to come to me, but rather I’m going after it and not

I do a visual scan of the area for as far as I can actually see. Toby must have caught my sudden alertness, so he turns on his flashlight. Getting so caught up with Toby, I didn’t realize how dark it has become. I am concentrating so hard onto Toby’s eyes that I lost track of time and my surroundings. It is all but pitch black with only a hint of light from the crescent moon above and the small amount of illumination coming from Toby’s pocket size flashlight that I can barely see anything past two feet in front of us. I know I am only feeling silly but thank goodness I am with someone, someone like Toby. He looks so brave right now. I don’t want to be alone, alone in the dark, alone in the dark in a cemetery, especially this particular spot that I felt such a strange occurrence earlier today. This is the perfect setting for some kind of creep show where zombies would start popping their desecrating heads up from beneath the crust of their eternal resting place. Gee, you’d think I’d know better than to go there. This is the wrong place and definitely wrong time to get my heart in such a frenzy state. I take a moment to look down at my two feet. Yep, they are still firmly planted on the ground. I’m determined to remain there and to remain calm, keep in sane, no, not insane, in sane, I correct, but at the same time I am enjoying this satisfying moment with Toby. “I don’t see anything, Vanessa. Are you ok? Are you warm enough? You’re shivering. Here take this”, Toby takes off his jacket and places it around my shoulders. “Thanks, Toby. I guess I may be a little chilly. Why don’t we find where Jules and Har. . .?” My eyes widen with disbelief. A thick purple-like fog is surrounding the both of us. Toby, spins around to notice what stops me, he too, apparently notices the thick dense fog which encases us without our realization. “Come on, let’s get out of here.” Toby grabs my hand and tries to pull me through blockade of fog. I can’t budge. I feel Toby tug at my arm but I, at the same time, feel something grip onto my leg tightly, securing me in place again. I can’t breathe, scream, cry, blink, anything. I am stuck here in limbo, between this thing holding my leg and Toby, tugging and coaxing me to move. “Come on, Nessa, let’s get out of here.” I can hear Toby ordering me as he is still trying to pull. He bends down, wraps his one arm around the back of my legs to scoop me up in his arms but he doesn’t. He looks as if he is trying, though I don’t think it is because he isn’t strong enough, I’m certain. Oh, I hope I’m not that heavy for him. I can see he is still trying, still straining but I no longer can feel his touch, only the stronger force that is holding me snug and secure in place. “Nessa, you there? Hello? Help me!” His face is streaking red before my eyes in his desperation to pick me up. I can hear him plead with me, but why can’t I turn my head down to look at his efforts. What is happening to me? This must be some kind of nightmare because my immobility is not making any kind of sense to me right now.
