Hallelujah! My books are on their way! I’ve spent the last few days working with the editor to get them ready, and they are now with the printer. I am dancing around, holding my breath, hoping to have them in my hands in a couple of weeks.
The Wisdom of Ambrose tells of a woman who goes to the redwoods to ponder the meaning and purpose in her life. In the midst of her meditations, she suddenly finds herself in another world, confronted by a bear – and the adventures of self-discovery begin.
The Forest tells the story of a youth who longs for a freedom that his tradition-obsessed people find shameful. One day, he is swept away from his village, called by the One into a hero’s journey through the Forest, a place where trees are spiritual protectors, and a wolf and a raven become his best friends and mentors.
The Forest is Book I of Menchian Journeys. I have already completed Book II, The Desert, a tale of heroism and romance. Both stories are written to be enjoyed both by adults, and by older children as well. They are fun reads with depth, and I hope will be satisfying to those who look for inner sustenance in the midst of pleasure-reading.
I am planning soon to set up pages for each book, with pictures of the covers and information about pricing and how to order. For those of you who are nearby, I will also have books to sell and will be happy to personally sign them if you wish.
I sincerely hope that those who read them will find them charming, fun, and intellectually pleasing.
