Joyce A. Anthony shares her PA home with her teenaged son, good friend, and a mini-zoo. Homeschooling mother, photographer, genealogist, animal advocate and psychologist are all roles that she fills in addition to freelance writer and editor. Joyce is the author of Storm, a spiritual fantasy and two books to be released in 2009: Spirit of the Stallion and Shattered Rainbow. She answers questions as an "expert" on bipolar disorder at and is currently working on two additional blogs--one for bipolar disorder and one for Asperger's Syndrome.

Storm by Joyce Anthony

Who he is and why he's here is a mystery even to Storm-a mystery that can only be answered within the whirling rainbow. His search puts him in touch with many of society's forgotten people; he changes their lives and heals their souls. When he finds the answer to his identity, the world is changed forever. You'll aske yourself: Is it only a fantasy--or is it real?


The wind whipped against the lighthouse, shaking it so fiercely that Sam could picture it toppling into the stormy sea. Waves pounded the rocks and halfway up the sides of the lighthouse—waves that were twice Sam's height. His thin frame tightened as he braced for each violent shake from the waves that fed hungrily on the wind. Sending a silent prayer skyward, Sam checked to make sure the light was still working. Weather like this could easily send an unfortunate ship spinning into the rocks, shattering it to mere splinters in seconds. The light continuously spun, sending its warning outward.
There's something different in this storm, Sam thought as he made his way to the lower level of the lighthouse. Another wave rattled the windows in the area Sam called home. "Yes, indeed," he mumbled out loud. "Something is definitely different."
