New York, NY (BlackNews.com) — Freelance journalist, author and poet Zaji, pens her first novel, When We Were One: The Story of an Ancient Race (Peace in the Storm Publishing), an insightful, thought provoking, and engaging work that takes readers on a journey through an unexpected world.
Inspired by authors such as Octavia Butler, Ray Bradbury and George Orwell, When We Were One transports readers to the far reaches of space in this imaginative speculative fiction novel.
USA Today writes, “…her story is a celebration of sisterhood and their connection with the physical world and beyond… Zajis imaginative tale will spur us to think and to be entertained.”
When We Were One honors women and their relationships, and it honors men and their connection to women, while taking readers on a tour through memories ofÂ days gone. It is a journey that uncovers the soul of women and theÂ spiritual miles they have trodden. Â When We Were One also honors nature andÂ the vastness of the many universes that speckle the darkness.
When We Were One is Zajis effort to share something wildly inventive with readers, ensconced in something ancient and familiar. She is an avid reader, prolific writer and meditative pianist. She resides in Mississippi with her family. Zaji can be found online at www.thezaji.com.
