I love to travel within my own book world journeys where I explore the lives, thoughts and emotions of everyday unsung heroines.
Much like an artist engrossed in creating a sculpture or painting, writing is a delicious and all-encompassing mind space to wander in.
For example; in Soul Skin, I spent time pondering what it must have been like for a young woman to navigate the Nazi death camp experience and the death process, be in battle as Joan of Arc and as a tethered wolf who finds freedom. I have spent nearly a year pondering a current novel in the works where a female pilot is crash sea landing an air plane. The main character in this book is in latter years, diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and so, I am pondering the slow memory loss and confusion symptoms process of the disease.
It is a fascinating journey!

It has been said by many spiritual philosophers that love and companionship, or soul mates, come in many different forms. These two are definitely a step out of the Hollywood ideal box of romance norms. I like characters that the quirky aspects of my own being can relate to.
