The Side Ways
Andy Havens graduated Cornell University with a degree in English Literature and Creative Writing. His first book of poetry, "Uffish Thought," was published by Pathos Press (Ithaca, NY) in 1988. Since then he has written several novels and novellas and a second book of poetry, "That One Looks Like an Anchor."
The planning and writing of book 1 of "The Side Ways" took almost 6 years, as all the layers, mysteries, and 10,000+ years of history surrounding Kendra's entrance into the Domains needed to be carefully planned and mapped. The second two books were both easier, since the plan was there, and harder... because the plan needed to be respected.
The series is both a fun, fast-paced, sometimes funny adventure through a world of magic and power. But it is also a story of how we all come to grips with the idea that others are very different than us. Will we fear those differences or embrace them? Do we want to stand out and be known for being different? Or fit in and be comfortable with others very much like us?
Or is there a side way...
