Every once and a while, you get a curious opportunity to experience a new story. When you first happen upon it, it might not seem real – is it satire? There’s no way that the author could possibly be so exuberant in their expression. But that’s just what you get from Sarantos, a singer-songwriter from Chicago who determined that he wanted to work on a companion novel for his music, something that he is more passionate about than most people are about anything. Not Where I Wanna Be is filled with emotion – most of it wholesome and beautiful. And while it is atypical throughout, it clings deftly to that old cliche not to judge a book by its cover.
This is the story of Sarantos’ fantastic journey. Come along for this unusual adventure and prepare to be surprised at every turn.
In this fiction/fantasy book, Sarantos is a young human male born on Earth, but currently residing in the home of Wallis on the world of Yarrowtopia. He is 30 years old with dark curly hair and a sensitive nature. He writes lyrics and plays guitar. He is being taught by Wallis on the skills of using magic, which he converts into lyrics and sings his spells like a bard of old. He started a band in this new land. He is in love with Leigh and is best friends with Brad. He has traveled from where he didn’t want to be to where he wants to be via a message from a dream. Mika, rescued him and brought him to a world where he found his one true love, Leigh.
