My name is Joanna,
and I’m just another statistic in The City’s trail of collateral damage.
Before The Turn, my
mother, Florence, was a devoted wife, iconic pianist, and tireless
humanitarian. On stage and off, her humility and natural grace captivated and
inspired her many admirers. Unmatched in elegance and fortitude, she was my
role model and hero.
The City siphoned her identity and shattered the illusions of her beautiful
life. It built her up, then tore her down. She drifted away, far from the
person I once knew. I should have known the tide would take me with her. I'd be
lying if I said I'd rather be anywhere else—with Florence was where I belonged.
As we fight for a
new beginning on the Isle, can we salvage the remains of our past? Or will the
delicate fabric of our history be lost forever in the apocalyptic crossfire of

A former Floridian
and Seattleite, R.M. Carpus now writes fantasy and science fiction from
Philadelphia, her birthplace and current home base. She is co-founder of
Impossible Things Publishing (ITP), a collaborative anthology project, and a
student and tutor at Saint Joseph’s University. The aftermath following the
tragic loss of her mother led her to return to her Catholic faith, which she
today counts as her greatest gift and joy in life, along with her family,
friends, and love for storytelling. She speaks a little French, dreams of
living in the English countryside, and like most writers, runs on coffee. She's
happiest outdoors—especially in the Pacific Northwest—or cuddled up at home
with her animals while reading, writing, or watching classic movies.
