What if you remembered being born? Imagine your awakening...Tanner Blue is an African-American woman named after the black painter, Henry Tanner. Her memory of being born inspires Tanner Blue to explore her own potential as an artist. Nurtured by her father and discouraged by her mother, Tanner Blue resorts to the artist's weapon of choice-imagination-in order to pursue her dream. Destiny leads Tanner Blue to a magical world that tests her creative abilities and alters her relationship to reality forever. Tanner Blue is set on the dreamy North Coast of California and in the enticing territory of Blackton. This novel embodies universal themes of duty, alienation, and self-fulfillment. In the traditions of The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and Richard Bach's Illusions, the lessons in Tanner Blue are familiar yet profound.
