Bridget Ladd never quite grew up. She's most likely to be caught carrying a pocketful of souvenir rocks and shells (to the washer's dismay) and gets excited over trivial things like colorful ponies and raiding tombs alongside her longtime favorite video game pal, Lara Croft. The smell of freshly turned dirt and the sea air are her favorites, and she isn't above doing twirling spins barefoot in the grass on a beautiful day in her yard. Her books are her shields and she will admit to having her head in the clouds more times than she probably should . . . but she doesn't let any of this bother her too much, remembering her favorite quote by Le Guin, and knowing that the creative adult is indeed the child who survived.

She graduated with honors

What if The Lotus Effect were to become a movie or TV series...who would you like to see play Lily and Xander? (Picking an actor for Xander isn't easy!) Let me know what you think. :)

“The Lotus grows in the most inhabitable of environments, and yet its beauty and purity persevere. A reminder that not all have to conform . . . or settle for what is.” —Theodore Teizel”
Bridget Ladd, The Lotus Effect

“If there was to be no one to shine the light for them during these dark times, then I would fight my way to that remaining ember, crawl on bloodied knees with enemies lurking close behind to shelter that last flicker of dying hope. If I didn’t champion myself for the people then who would?”
Bridget Ladd, The Lotus Effect

“I’ve found that envy tends to bring out the ugliest in people.”
Bridget Ladd, The Lotus Effect

“I'll never tell you to stop loving. You see, I believe in hopeless love. Oh yes. I believe in it with all my heart, though you may discount the heart of an old nanny like me. For real love brings pain. Real love means sacrifices and hurts and all the thousand shocks of life. But it also means beauty, true beauty.”
Anne Elisabeth Stengl, Moonblood
