WAYNESBURG – The mystical world in the “Sensate Nine Moon Saga” is coming to Greene County.

Thanks to a foray into family genealogy, author Carol Cajigas of Lancaster was inspired to write a fantasy trilogy based on an obscure ancestor she stumbled upon, Teater Higgins, a great-grandfather who was, according to old family accounts, “buried somewhere in Waynesburg.”

Cajigas will be at Artbeat Gallery...

In 2011 Alexandra Higgins spoke to me, and without knowing, her words brought forth the Sensate Nine Moon Saga.  Before one word of the series was written, she let me know it would all work out in the end.  Her words were cryptic and contained deep thoughts.  Here's what she said:

WAYNESBURG — While doing genealogical research on her family, Carol Cajigas tracked down a family member, her great-great grandfather, Teater Higgins, to Waynesburg.

Born in Paw Paw, West Virginia, Higgins married Mary Wilkinson from Wheeling, West Virginia, but is believed to be buried somewhere in Waynesburg, according to old family accounts.

“He means nothing to me.”  Onatah sighed.

Juan caressed her face in his calloused hands.  “Ona, I am not questioning your loyalty; I am concerned he will misinterpret your kindness.”

“Am I not to be kind?”  Her dark eyes rose to meet his.

“I’ve watched how he looks at you.”

She was aware of Juan's protective nature.  Not possessing...

Waynesburg, Pennsylvania – Spring

The instant her toe caught Alexandra braced herself for the impact.  As her body made contact, the surface gave way.  A scream escaped her lips as she tumbled downward through a dark shaft.  The descent ended abruptly with a belly flop into icy cold water.

Water gushed up her nose and into her mouth; she thrashed until her foot touched bottom and her head...

I've been researching cataclysmic events for my next novel, and I've settled on the destructive nature of the aberrant gamma ray.

It's a good thing I write fiction.  I can't imagine the work it would take to be factual; I have enough trouble keeping my characters from running off the page as it is.  Although my books revolve around a fictional world, I try to keep a firm footing in the real world....
