Jade fell in love with the opera “Salome” as a student at the Manhattan School of Music, though deploring the wanton, blood-lusting image Salomé had been given when her only sin was to become enamored with a gorgeous hunk of prophet who then spurned and cursed her.

This was the beginning of a decade-long journey to give Salomé back her innocence that took Jade from NY to Germany where she eventually met her writing partner. It led her to Wellington, New Zealand in 2003 with a first draft of a “Salomé” screenplay where she met “Lord of the Rings” production people – and was told she should write the novel. The journey continues – in the hope that “Salomé” will become the epic motion picture she was originally intended to be.

Character study - Archlord Cyrus, Salomé’s father

By Sharlie Pryce (co-author of "Salomé")

I was deeply touched by the out-pouring of admiration and respect people have expressed at the passing of Nelson Mandela, affectionately called Madiba - this man who, by his own life, set an example of how we can truly forgive, get past our differences and grievances and unite. Reading my Facebook posts, the newspaper articles and watching TV reports from ar Read more of this blog post »

Jade Valor liked a quote
Ecological Literacy by Michael K. Stone
“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.”
David W. Orr

“Events had been set in motion whose echo would be heard a thousand and more generations from now.”
J. Valor, Salom�

“It was floating. Waiting.

It had no sense of how long It had been in this state. Its awareness had retreated into a tiny core at the center of Its being, away from the searing torment of separation, Its very essence ripped apart. Never had It known such sensation. So It had retreated, further and deeper, wrapping Itself in a cocoon of Light; waiting only for a call, for an opening, that It might be reunited with Its Beloved. Waiting until...

Something stirred within. Suddenly, there is a reaching, a pulling. Its awareness opens and It is caught in a field of gravity. It plunges down, irresistibly down toward the blue planet, unable to control or navigate.”
J. Valor, Salom�

“Time no longer mattered. He knew he would have plenty of it at his disposal. The sight of the star filled him with indescribable longing.”
J. Valor, Salom�

“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.”
