R.M. Gilmourabout this book: Lydia has lost everyone in her life. She breathes because she must. But when her soulmate pulls her into his dimension she finds life and love once more. Though only to be told that it is her very life that can stop the Guardian of the planet from killing and controlling the colonists outside of its city. And when her soulmate is taken captive by the Guardian, she will risk all to save him.
A soul-searching story of love and acceptance, The Colony offers a fresh perspective on the separation of mind and body, and the power of resilience and perseverance. Aimed at adult and new adult readers, I hope you enjoy reading the story as much as I enjoyed writing it.
My inspiration for the story came from my not-so-lonely walks home each day, after dropping my son off at school. Jordan (yes, in my head, and no, I swear I'm not crazy), would join me on an adventure each morning, in another dimension (it is a fabulous thing that I had no roads to cross on my way home). And once my day was done, each night I would write about him and his world.
The title came to me almost as soon as I started writing the story. It took less than six months to write it from start to finish, but then another six to edit... Editing, I quickly discovered was a whole other realm on its own...
There is a book two, carving its own vicious path through Lydia's world, and which I hope to have finished by early 2016.
