Inside the Writer’s Cafe with Cheryl Nason – THE IN-BETWEEN TIME by Micki Mongogna-Alarcon
Shala is a beautiful mysterious girl with long black hair and brilliant green eyes that look like shiny emeralds. She learns to love and appreciate the man (Yantox) who found her and took on the role of her father. She has no idea who she really is or where she came from. She has tried to get answers from Yantox, but when she saw the horrendous pain that it caused him, she decided she would try to find out the answers on her own.
After a one year forced separation, Yantox finds how much he misses and actually loves Shala. He even finds that because of her, he has a complete attitude change. He is unable to answer any questions regarding Shala’s heritage because he has the same problem. He has no idea who he is or where he came from.
The forest around the village has a mysterious affect called the in-between time. When humans walk in the forest and remain after dusk, they meet with disastrous consequences.
Shala is always searching, trying to find the answers to her questions. She finds herself caught in the in-between time. She remains herself, but the characters she meet see her very differently. She finds that her life continues to be confusing. A very special gift that she possesses will assist her by guiding her to safety. She finds that as she follows her adventures to find out who she is and where she belongs, makes her a much stronger person.
