Whether we admit it or not I think we are all fascinated by the concept of parallel universes; where things happen slightly different to reality and where virtually everything is possible. Parallel universes are mainly the stuff of science fiction and the paranormal. But we can’t necessarily confine them to these fictional genres.
A while ago I came up with the idea of the Lynchcliffe parallel universe where changing just small aspects of the real Lynchcliffe story contained in the Chronicles trilogy made things turn out rather differently.
I came up with the idea of the Scenarios trilogy. Three books containing three novellas apiece each focused on changing just one aspect of the main Lynchcliffe story. The first two volumes Courage of Conviction and Making Amends are available on Kindle and in paperback. The third volume Crossing the Line draws near completion and I expect to release it in the next month or so.
