Quick Look: Serenity Falls

Serenity Falls

Serenity Falls sits to the northeast of the Aurora District. Primarily east of Mount Kirby and Dovie Lake. Serenity Falls covers approximately 14,000 acres and is home for some of the wealthiest of Aurora City elite. There are several exclusive clubs in the area and various social events rotate through the most beautiful locations to be found in the area. Of particular interest are the Serenity Belle’s Ball and the Silver Regatta, both of which happen only once a year.

A Bright Day

… and not just because the sun is shining down rather than raining!

Orchids Ablaze Book News

I’m excited that Orchids Ablaze has been selected by Chanticleer Reviews as a Semi-Finalist in the Paranormal Division!
