Lanaia Lee was born in 1957 to a Navy father and a schoolteacher mother who home-schooled her. In second grade, she was reading on a 4th grade level, so they moved her to a private school to enhance her education.



When she was nine years old, her mother died from a massive stroke. Because her father was rarely home, her grandmother, a professed black witch, gained custody.

When Lanaia was 14, her grandmother abandoned her, and she landed in foster care where she had four different sets of foster parents within a year, because she kept running away to avoid men who attempted to molest her. At age fifteen, she went to boarding school on her dad's GI Bill. She graduated in her junior year after which she drifted, living with various people with neither a family nor a home. At eighteen, she married and divorced having three miscarriages. By nineteen, she began working in management for convenient stores and restaurant chains.



She remarried at age 30, then had a stillborn daughter a year later. Five years later, her husband left her for a seventeen-year-old. She filed bankruptcy, and one month later suffered a massive stroke, which, after seven months in the hospital, put her in a wheelchair.



The next two years involved intensive physical therapy, but she would never walk again. She took the step of finding work to help her rehabilitation. She found employment at vocational trades where she met my soul mate, David, also in a wheelchair from a motorcycle wreck he sustained in 1984. They married in 1992 and are still happily married.



They, too, lost two children due to her disease, erratic hypertension. She and her husband live independently, and she still drives.



In 2001, David dared her to write a poem. Out of curiosity, she posted it in an online poetry forum. The feedback was so positive, she kept writing. At first, she wrote just poems, then short stories and finally novels. All of her work is typed one-handed because of her disabilities.



Lanaia gives credit to the grace of God which has helped her overcome immense adversity, hold her head high, and she claims she won’t quit until she hits the best seller list.

As Silent As A Mine a poem

I look up at the stars, I know what is in the future and it really scares me
The proof lies within the road map to the stars
The alignment, in the future, the effect on the Earth, all we can do is wait and see
The stars can tell me of a devastation, that for me, I can foretell this from afar.

I just know of this by simply reading the stars, that twinkle in the night sky
I really wish I could warn mankind as to what the outcome of this may be
Will mankind survive this thing, or will it be so devastating that everyone will die?
The sun aligning directly in front of the center of the universe, from this I don't think mankind can flee.

The Gods in the heavens, looking down on us, when the time comes maybe they will help
I know awful devastation may occur, I want to reach across space and time, to send a warning
When this occurs, will mankind be all alone? No one to hear their pleas for help
It's really very scary, because no one knows what devastation this thing may bring.

Being an avid astronomer in this day and time, I can pinpoint certain things
Things I wish I did not know, because I fear for those in the future
Those that may not heed the prophecy, in the future mankind thinking they can handle anything
There is no stopping this thing that every twenty-six thousand years it occurs.

We will leave the future a warning within our complicated calendar
Hoping the future understands what we are saying when our calendar of time ends
Our prophecy is different, because there is scientific proof as to what will occur
I just hope mankind heeds our warning maybe then mankind will have some time their evil ways to mend.

Looking at the stars, they tell everything and all
Being Mayan, we are obsessed with the stars and with time
I just wish I could be with mankind in the future, as the alignment will cause mankind to take some kind of fall
We think the center of our galaxy a black hole, immense gravitational pull, afterward mankind may be as silent as a mine.

Caylee's Lullaby

Hush my sweet child, there is no more pain here to make you cry Dry your eyes, no more tears, just your sweet sweet smile You are now embraced by angels, they help dry the tears that you cry You are now protected,no one can hurt you now, sleep my little child, rest yourself for a while. Embraced by God, here you can rest, no more worries should you suffer You can run amidst the clouds, because now my sweet child you are now free You are with the others that went before you, and they accept you… Continue
