More About This Title Locks & Gates


The fourth book of this series, Locks & Gates, follows the adventures of the Selena Fleet deeper into the Orion Spur—and deeper into our minds. As in each volume, transformations and challenges await… The Curious Voyages of the Anna Virginia Saga is an allegory of man’s inner worlds. This series spans the development of awakening—from a simple chance encounter to the intentional exploration of the cosmos, from our little bit of real estate in the solar system to the center of the galaxy. A parable of a small nucleus of individuals who band together and set out on the journey of a lifetime.


J. L. Lawson resides in the crosstimbers country of northern Texas. After a rewarding career in technical writing and illustration, he turned his attention to the classroom, and over the last decade taught honors-level Literature and Composition courses. Throughout his personal life, J. L. Lawson dedicated himself to verifiably answering the fundamental questions of human existence. His own journey took him both far afield and deep within. It is a journey, no doubt, similar in nature to many seekers' travels who have come before him. However, an unconditional commitment to the work is the trait of only a handful of those who set their aim very high indeed, and then to find a guide who knows the way through that rarely known land, is without question what all others have equally sought. Some gave up the search, some became distracted by the lure of other interests, many became satisfied with the knowledge they had already gleaned from their initial searches. There is, in the end, only so much gold. As a result of this journey of awakening, he can now provide these parables of a practicable path toward the recovery of our human birthright.
