Heaven’s Wait is a light fantasy world born of my imagination. It is an evolving magical land filled with unique, other-worldly characters as well as visitors that are more familiar in nature. As a whole, they find themselves searching for truth and purpose in one way or another. I invite you to explore my unlikely world of Heaven’s Wait, much of which still lives in my head. Read the stories, discover the characters and their environment, and learn about my thought processes as the world and its stories evolve. My hope is that you enjoy the fantasy, feel at home within the communities, and that, along the way, you are transported to some new and better places. Best to you, Barbara McLaughlin
