Can you breathe it?

Dust flitting on the breeze from the lifted cover. 

Ink saturating a yellowing parchment. 

Glue holding a faint trace of long dried chemicals.

Can you see it?

Black plastic and smooth edges covered in glass.

Blue glowing light as the digital device powers on.

Images and links to an endless array of stories.

Can you feel it?

The weight of the tales awaiting consumption.

The anticipation of insight into another world. 

The sheer roaring power in the written words.

Can you sense it?

A great escape. 

A grand adventure.

An exquisite love affair.

Read it!

Book life. 

Read life. 

Written life.

Ophelia Kee

About the Author

Not who everyone thinks she is.  

The product of someone’s imagination. 

The end result of a lifetime wishing to get out.

Do not buy the lie.

If you live in fear, you give up freedom.

Taking the risk and making the leap.

Too much of anything is a bad thing.

Innuendo floating on the mist that rises above the water.

Walk away and leave it all behind.

Telling the story that haunts a fantasy.

Catching a dream.

She does not exist.
