Drew Bankston lives in the Rocky Mountains with his wife, two amazingly perfect dogs, and a garden.
Before he started writing science fiction, Drew received his bachelor’s degree in Bio-Ag Sciences from Colorado State University. After that, just to shake things up, he never really used that degree but worked various jobs in retail and Asset Protection with some really important people who are way too dignified to be named here. He’s still working but would eventually like to write full-time and stop working for other people. He likes pie and chocolate, as everyone should.

We all have them, Those gray days when our thoughts seem endlessly trapped in gray thoughts. Somethings they happen when the day itself is gray. Such is the way it was with Tom Parker as he walked along the beach, trying to figure out how to save his company from bankruptcy. He has hoped for some quiet solitude where eh and the ocean could commiserate and where he could come to so sensible and uplifting decisions. But the gray thoughts on this gray day turned into mental and actual rain. He was wrapped up in those dismal thoughts until something tapped him on the foot and changed his entire life!
The Imagination Stone
As he thought about the gray world in which he was apparently trapped, something touched his foot and made him jump. Perhaps he thought it was a crab or some other kind of sea creature sneaking up on him, but looking down, he realized that it was just a small stone that the tide had washed up to shore. The stone seemed to emit a faint glow, almost like the phosphorescence that is seen in the waves sometimes at night. He thought that it was strange to see a stone rolling around in the water.
