“First off, this was a beautifully written story. Ms. Collins writes with an understanding of Japanese culture, poetry and brilliance. This is a story of revelation, choice and beauty. Amazingly descriptive and captivating, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story and will enjoy it many more times. Personally, I believe that Ms. Collins could turn this into a full novel and it would be even more astounding.” — Sci-Fi Author Y.I. Washington

Excerpt:  At the portal to the central temple, Akira paused, allowing her mother to go before her. As Kaori entered, the security system scanned her with blue lasers. Sensing she was of no threat to Revered Mother, she was allowed entry. Akira followed on her mother’s heels. She hurried to pour tea for her mother and then noticed her grandmother’s steady stare.
‘Akira join us for tea.’ Her grandmother opened the buchidan, an ancient wood hutch that housed the Orb of Tsuyo-sa 強さ that fortified the clan. ‘Pour a cup for our ancestors.’

I am excited about a serialized superhero project that I have been working on with the team at Metahuman Press.

Lightweight is about a teen named Kevin Mathis whose main desire in life is to have a normal life. But his dreams bring about a change in his life, a change with lasting ramifications for him and everyone he knows.
