WELCOME to Lost Myths Ink LLC

Debora and Sandra...early Renaissance Faire at Blackpoint

So we began, as most things do, many years ago.  But not far away...in Northern California.  We were lifelong friends before we became collaborators, and then business partners.  We have written, together and separately, novels, screenplays, articles, interviews, poems and short stories and published some of each.  More about that later...Lost Myths Ink became an LLC in 2004.  The name comes from our fantasy series, of which the first two volumes have been published (twice!) with different covers, and now the whole series will be published with covers designed by a visionary artist of some renown.  When we were in college, I introduced Sandra Barnes to Thomas Brandenburg; they were married for half their lives, and my two best friends.  I am the CEO of Lost Myths Ink, Sandra was the COO.  In 2012, Sandra died too soon, leaving Tommy and I behind and going on to the Summerland without us.  Now we have a Sandra-sized hole in our lives and our hearts, and Tommy has become the COO of Lost Myths Ink.

In 2007, we decided to form our own multimedia fund.  That has taken three times as long as anticipated, been through so many failures and shocking events that it took over our lives.  2007 was also the last year we published a book, and it would be eight years before we did so again...without Sandra now.  But enormous efforts always take over lives, always take years to accomplish, and are usually the equivalent of a Shih Tzu birthing an elephant.  And so it has been with us.  The ongoing saga of Lost Myths Ink will be showcased on this site in installments that started out as a book...because once it reached four hundred pages and I had years to go before I finished it, I decided it was just too long!

This adventure is now approaching lift-off.  In these pages you may journey with us, through published and unpublished works, photographs, reviews, interviews...here are our lives and the life of Lost Myths Ink LLC.  At least for now...

Merry meet...and merry part...and merry meet again...
