In my novel Twelve Houses, I tell the story of a widow who discovers that her life story is far from over. Amelia is a brave woman who struggles to find her true place in the world and at the same time to create a life that holds spiritual meaning and purpose. Though my first book, Borrowing My Mother’s Saints, was a comedy set in New York, I think both books describe a similar spiritual journey. I always consider the spiritual aspects of a character’s story as I write.
I love to hear from my readers in Amazon reviews, Facebook and Pinterest.

They say learning to receive is just as important as giving. But for some reason I think the grand majority of people feel more comfortable giving. Giving of their time, money or feeling in a kind smile, we give and we don’t even take note, it’s just a part in our day. However on the receiving we tend to be more selective, if we get a compliment for example sometimes our first reaction might be... Read more of this blog post »

“Faith is about trust in something deeper. Maybe I have given you the wrong impression when I pray to the Saints, but it always allows peace of mind for me. I know they intercede before God, but I also know that God is listening, and just knowing this makes all the difference.”
Olga Soaje, Borrowing My Mother's Saints

“you will have your heart broken many times before you find The One, that God has sent and made especially for you. But you must learn from every experience. Honey, let me just say this, the right person is the one that will see you and understand you and think you are the greatest thing on this earth. Even when he can see your faults, he will be your friend, confidant, and love.”
Olga Soaje, Borrowing My Mother's Saints

“There just comes a time in life when you have to accept and move on . . . when you have nothing but faith and hope. That is what you grab and hold on to, and that, believe it or not, will take you to a higher and better place. You have to be willing.”
Olga Soaje, Borrowing My Mother's Saints

“You can be gorgeous at thirty, charmimg at forty, and irresistible for the rest of your life.”
Coco Chanel

“A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.”
William Styron, Conversations with William Styron

“Faith is about trust in something deeper. Maybe I have given you the wrong impression when I pray to the Saints, but it always allows peace of mind for me. I know they intercede before God, but I also know that God is listening, and just knowing this makes all the difference.”
Olga Soaje, Borrowing My Mother's Saints

“Imagination is like a muscle. I found out that the more I wrote, the bigger it got.”
Philip José Farmer

“Even the strongest and bravest must sometimes weep. It shows they have a great heart, one that can feel compassion for others.”
Brian Jacques, Redwall
