My name is Whitney Rines, I’m a writer and illustrator for both work and fun. I’m married to a wonderful guy, have a pet python and live in Alaska. I enjoy telling a good story and aim to give as much enjoyment out of it as possible. Writing is my passion as is reading, so I have shelves and shelves of books both for reference/research and enjoyment. As something I enjoy doing as a hobby, I never thought I’d be doing it as my main source of work but, I’m having fun with it.
Pearls of Time: Between Gods and Mortals is the first part of a story I’ve been working on for some time now. The story follows events after a sect of the Immortals’ race makes decisions that terrorize the mortal world in effort to become Gods over them. Their achievement of god status comes at a cost to each of them, as their punishment.
Between Gods and Mortals follows twins Lizia and Fayet in their experiences of redemption and a different view of mortals than what they had before. They both experience a different form of love for mortals. Lizia takes a more motherly and protective stance in general, and a special affection for those that arise ‘different’ from the others because of a choice she is forced to make.
Fayet falls in love with a specific mortal and eventually gains mortal form to be with her and create a family. With his family and his bond with Lizia, Fayet’s life would seem to be perfect but something else slowly becomes a dark and deadly part of his beloved reality as well. The road this leads to paves the family’s path into darkness, fear, and betrayal.Whitney Rines
