This is the portal to my mad scientist's lab in the metaverse. I like to experiment with new ways to tell and experience stories. The tools for making stories more compelling and immersive are getting easier for authors to acquire and use. I explain where to find them and how to use them on my blog here at Nara's Nook. At the Readers and Writers Colony I host in Nara's Nook Grid you'll find interactive tutorials and other adventurous readers and writers exploring the wonders of immersive storytelling.
Visit my Virtual Worlds page to learn how to enter the colony and explore immersive worlds I use to plan scenes and settings for my books. You'll probably meet some of my characters roaming the streets, forests, and swamps. Most of the characters are only minimally verbal, but some can carry on lengthy conversations. The characters are digital bots and powered by Artificial Intelligence programs. I give them the last name Bot so that you will be able to tell for certain when the avatar you are chatting with is not real.All of the objects, scenes, worlds are free for writers and readers to explore and use to inspire their own work. With the exception of some of the bot characters (publisher and copyright issues), I make objects I create open permissions, and much of what I use was provided by 3D artists like Linda Kellie and content creators at Opensim Creations who provided it with open permission. Feel free to drop in the cyber cafe and use one of the internet enabled laptops, role play in the apocalyptic worlds. Explore Pantheria. Play in my holodeck. I hope it all inspires you to write wonderful stories and to read some of the stories I've been inspired to write.
I write paranormal shapeshifter and cyber romance as well as video games for general audiences. You can information about my books and current projects here or at one of the many places I blog in the list on the top left menu.
