Did you ever have an itch you couldn't scratch, a feeling that you're supposed to be doing something else, something bigger with your life? Something that would touch the souls of the rest of mankind and justify your place among your fellow men, but you just couldn't put your finger on what? Well Serina Hartwell spent the best part of 40 years looking for the answer and low and behold, finished up back where she started, with writing. She sometimes questions why she didn't just turn in the opposite direction, she would have gotten there straight away, but her path led her away from writing when she was just a teenager, because she lacked the confidence to pursue her dream. Reminiscing one day, the thought occurred to her that if she had found writing back then, she wouldn't have taken the journeys that led her to write The Hidden Saga.
