About Me



Glynis Rankin is a self proclaimed daydreamer and avid reader whose tastes runs the gamut of fiction. She writes stories from an empathetic view that hovers on the fringe of reality, giving insight into humanity while offering the reader a new perspective into their daily lives.

She is a 2013 Pushcart nominee and the author of two inspirational fictions:  Linger and other short stories and The Between. She has two soon to be released books a psychological thriller Mental and a Paranormal/Urban Fantasy Believe. The first book in the trilogy Bel’eve.

Glynis is a natural introvert, who loves the great outdoors. It’s that spiritual connection with nature that revitalizes her soul. She resides in Memphis, Tennessee with her family.

  She writes the unbelievable because the unbelievable exist.

Thoughts on Writing

I believe writers have an avenue to touch others in  ways that few other artists can. With words, a writer can inspire a generation to act, to change our world. Words allow the mind to envision the senses; something  a sculpture can’t  or a painter and certainly not a  musician. Words are the creative tools of any writer. With this blog, I hope to inspire with my words, while talking  about my continuing struggle to become a published author. The trials of my daily writings and hopefully my passion for learning more about this art form.


Some day I hope to have a few of my books traditionally  published, until then, this site is my way of vocalizing the continuing struggle toward that goal. I hope that with the help of others with my passion for words, that desire will be achieved. So, enjoy my Nubian rantings and let me know if you think I’ve got a shot at reaching my goal.

In the Between

Blogging my thoughts have allowed me to express myself, while I pursue my dreams. Since I’m in between a finished novel, sending  letters to publishers, editing  stories, writing notes for another novel  and awaiting worldwide fame, I’m blogging. The Between  is the place where I let my Nubian Musings fly free.

      I’m so very honored! Just when I decided not to take on any more awards, I’m presented with this one. I have to say I can’t turn this away. But I don’t know that many bloggers that don’t already have this award or just don’t accept them anymore. I’ll have to see what I can come up with.

  13. Congratulations on the Liebster award! Your blog is amazing… and hurray for the soon to be published novel! thanks for stopping by Just Fuffy.. up here in the oh so cold north! My DD lived on Mudd Island for a few years and worked at the Jude… our entire family is in love with St Jude’s and Memphis as well… Lucky you, it is gorgeous there now!

    1. Hey! I have been trying to find you?

      I didn’t remember your blog address and it doesn’t show when I hit your avatar. I’ve been trying to award you the Liebster award.

      Now that I know your blog address I’ll be coming over, because one of my people decided not to accept her award. Which left me with one short of the number needed.

      And it is gorgeous here!

      1. WOW, thank you so much! I will figure this out and accept with humble pleasure… heading out of town… I’ll put it up and link back next week…. I am so new to this, finding my way slowly… never would I have imagined a world so filled with amazing stories… and generousity..

        down the road, I would like to know more about your life and the sadnesses you have experienced… hugs… more hugs…
