The "MOD LIFE" Epic Saga

The "MOD" stands for "Markum" "O'Roark" "Dix". It is now an Epic Saga.  The entire Saga has been rebranded. The different series have been disbanded and the volumes are all renumbered. The only additional series will be the bonus series. 

Sars Springs, AZ
Sars Springs is a fictional town in Arizona, and the stories of the MOD Life Epic Saga revolve around its residents. Some other towns are also fictional, and a few have real town names (but are in no way real).  Names, characters, businesses, places, events and incidents are either the products of the author’s imagination or used in a fictitious manner. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental. 

In the Beginning ...The story starts with Alex Garrison (aka Alexis Rossi Garris), who has recently moved to Sars Springs, AZ.  She is recently widowed, and is trying to build a new life for herself. So, that's what she does.

Alex doesn't realize it, but her past always catches up to her. She also doesn't realize that the lives she meets in Sars Springs, have a major effect on her and her future. 

Sars Springs has a deep history, and it is revealed throughout the stories that make up the Epic Saga. Sars Springs is a fictional town in Arizona. It is supposed to be located about 2 hours south of Florence, AZ. It's surrounding towns are Henryville, Afton,  and Middleburg (later rebuilt as Lowville).  A long and winding creek "Salter's Creek" emerges at the base of a waterfall near the town reservoir, weaves through the town, and eventually, flows into Minx River, outside of Henryville.

Alexis Garris is from Pottstown, PA originally. Her "late" husband Matthew Garris is from Florence, as is Jim O'Roark. Terry and Carey Markum grew up in Afton. Mike and Mark Dix are also from Pennsylvania. Randy Harrison and Greg Shapone are originally from Florida.

​Alex settles in Sars Springs and gets a job at Solutions Computer Systems, Inc. Her adventure begins there, and continues with her newfound friends, and some old friends, as well.
