Featured Anthology:

THE MYSTERY OF FATE: Common Coincidence or Divine Intervention?


Arlene Uslander (Sonora, California) and Brenda Warneka (Scottsdale, Arizona) - met on a writer's site on the Internet, on a writers’ website, and this book is a culmination of that relationship. Arlene is the author of 15 books and over 400 articles. Brenda, an attorney and businesswoman, writes on legal and human interest topics. They are both award-winning journalists.

Fate is a universal concept. Call it what you may: destiny, luck, kismet or coincidence, the common thread in this fascinating anthology is the presence in everyday lives of a force that intervenes. The stories in this book will make you laugh; some will make you cry. Some will amaze you, while still others will inspire and motivate you. But each account carries the imprint of its author, allowing his or her perspective to light the way to a unique interpretation of fate. While some storytellers simply allow for the presence of destiny or fate, others connect their experiences to a Higher Power, whether Guardian Angel or God or both. No matter your theological stance, by the end of the book, you may find it difficult to attribute the events recounted here to happenstance.

These experiences with fate, some of which were written by the editors, span several decades and cross continents, highlighting the elements of timelessness and universality of the concept of fate. For fate is indeed a timeless concept. The ancient Greeks believed that fate was more powerful than the gods. Ask yourself: what do you believe?
