Welcome to the Fabulous Curtis Edmonds Dot Com Website and Book Emporium

My name is Curtis Edmonds; I’m the author of, most recently, A CIRCLE OF FIRELIGHT, a YA portal fantasy novel about a young woman who is thrust into an imaginary dream world following a tragic car accident.

I am a fairly normal and average person, but I am maybe a little more vulnerable than… Continue reading The Needle Tears a Hole
