Lovelyn Bettison writes speculative fiction with a multicultural cast.
In her stories, the normal world is slightly askew, magic happens every day, and ordinary people end up in extraordinary situations. Her novels explore the themes of loss, regret, and striving to be better. There's almost always a love story. There is definitely magic, and she likes all her ending to be the happy kind.
If you want to explore a world that is different from your own and full of quirky characters and unusual occurrences check out her books.
