A. S. Wilshire’s love of the written word began in her preteen years as she discovered the wonders of losing oneself in books. Ms. Wilshire soon discovered that she had stories of her own to tell, yet they remained hidden for many years as her life took her down a different path. Yet destiny could not be ignored for long, and eventually, her path led her once again to her passion for storytelling, and her free time was soon consumed with capturing the images and events that filled her imagination. After the death of her grandfather, and soon thereafter, her grandmother, Ms. Wilshire, made the monumental decision to accept the possibility that her beloved hobby could be more. With the support and encouragement from those closest to her, Ms. Wilshire opened her heart and her imagination and allowed fate to guide her down the path that led us all to discover the world of Lamerion.
