Pam Van Allen’s July, 2022 newsletter
I’m Pam Van Allen, retired clinical psychologist turned author and editor, eternal music aficionado. My books and stories are based on albums and songs. Midnight on the Water drew from Electric Light Orchestra’s Eldorado and Five Legends Five Guitars imagined how the Traveling Wilburys in another universe might have recorded an album using superpowers.
Perhaps you already have On the Run, the prequel to the Secret Messages series. If not, you may request it below.
Jaquonie Jaron Zohns, youthful son of Damlayan Karam Zohns, goes to war against his uncle Mandalay and loses the War for the Crown. He flees to Earth to escape while his troops regroup. He must adapt to the alien culture and environment while planning his return and eventual victory. He has never lived without servants, and he doesn’t know how to live on his own.
The Secret Messages series will be released over the next few months. Although the Secret Messages album didn’t tell a story, I based a series of novels on it.
