Glynis Rankin characterizes herself as an Introverted Sensitive who loves to inhabit the inner world of her mind, creating worlds that mirror what the outer world tries to conceal. This Empath graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree in Science, and worked in the tapered mentality of the medical profession, yet keeping her childlike awe and rich imagination in tack. Glynis is a freelance writer of Speculative Fiction as well as a published author and poet. She writes stories from her empathic heart, having seen the continual human struggles on the front lines. That insight into a world of pain and anguish affected her writing voice giving it an urban edge. Her stories are on the fringe of reality, giving insight into humanity while offering the reader a new perspective into their daily lives. She lives in Memphis, Tn. in a dissimilar locale of an idyllic setting full of wildlife and open spaces alongside urban decay that ignites her imagination to write the unbelievable that exists all around us if only we open our eyes.
