but to become one is an entirely different story. Sixteen-year-old
Amber Oak wanted nothing more than to stay in her own world of music
and solitude. But the inhabitants of Galaseya, a Utopian planet
rooted in the past, had other ideas in mind. According to them, only
she wielded the power to stop the dark forces threatening their home.
At ﬁrst, Amber sympathized with the planet, but saw no reason to
involve herself in the aﬀairs of something outside her world. But
the stakes have risen when she discovers that Galaseya is not only
the world that has been invading her dreams, but also the place her
estranged family originated from. With this new knowledge, questions
began to surface and secrets of Amber’s life come to light causing
her to second guess everything she knows.

family, would want to read the ramblings of a young teenager. When we

publish my third book, for it had been sitting on the shelf for about
two years. She thought it would be good to get it out there, before I
started college. I did not see what harm it could do, so my third

I published “Amber Oak and the Missing Links”. I went on to

“We need to go home. It’s not safe here anymore, the Brothers will only be held back for so long before they find a way to us,” he said as he stopped to pull back the drawn curtain and peer out the window.
Amber heard some muttering coming from the other end of the phone, and the voice sounded male, but she couldn’t make out any words. Chris interrupted the person as he said hurriedly, “No, I don’t know what they’re planning, but I’d rather not stay around to find out. Please, she’d be safer in Galaseya.”
The voice on the other end responded, as Chris’ pace quickened with every second. His brow furrowed as his expression grew serious. When he spoke, his tone flat, “What do you mean, what’s wrong?”
Amber continued watching her brother go from determined to despair in a matter of seconds as he moved away from the window and plopped down on the couch. With his phone to his ear and his other arm resting on his knee cradling his head, he asked “How is this possible? We…I thought we got rid of her years ago!”
Got rid of her? What kind of a family am I in? thought Amber as she adjusted her position. She waited for Chris’ back to turn before dashing toward the front door. Hoping to make more sense of the conversation, she stayed a while longer waiting for Chris to speak.
“Well, this changes things,” continued Chris, trying to stifle his growing frustration, “Amber will eventually have to return home and probably sooner than we expected. Please, dad, you must do something. I don’t want her coming home to a bloodbath.”
