It is always an exciting time around the RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB when #PIF (Pay It Forward) Day comes around!
Today it is my pleasure to introduce you to Regina M. Joseph. She is a two year member of the RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB, a futurist, innovator, attorney, Sci Fi/Fantasy novelist, entrepreneur, shaolin, pianist, nature and cosmology, by her own words.
Regina has been an avid reader her entire life. As a youth, she exhausted the science fiction section of Zanesville, Ohio public library, falling in love with Andre Norton. She is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of The Ohio State University’s honors program, and she graduated from OSU’s Moritz College of Law with honors, where she was Managing Editor of The Ohio State Law journal. Regina continues a thriving legal practice in M&A and commercial and corporate law in Toledo, Ohio, and she is blessed with a fine husband and three wonderful children, as well as a special niece.
A few years ago, Regina undertook a study of ancient history and discovered how little is known apart from tales labeled as mere mythology. Sumerian tablets, which have only recently been translated, tells stories of the “ones who came from the stars” to dwell among Earth people and teach them. About this time, human knowledge of agriculture exploded. Sumerian cities were sophisticated. Although the star men possessed sophisticated technology, they were ruled by a father and his two sons. The son governing Earth was described as a mere adolescent. And so, Regina began to ponder current social trends that might lead to a global tech kingdom governed by a single family, and why those people might search out the primitive people of Earth and decided to nurture them. As above, so below. Her ponderings led to The Alterran Legacy Series. The first installment, Colony Earth, was released in October 2012, and it won first place 2012 Global eLit Award in Science Fiction/Fantasy. The second installment, was released in March 2013. The third Resurrection, is also out as well, and she is writing the last volume, Redemption.
