Celebrating the NEW RELEASE of DARK WATER

Well, it's official! The re-release of DARK WATER is now on! I'm very excited about this as the story is very close to my heart and the first in a series.

Thank you to Stephanie and all the people at ASTRAEA PRESS for giving the series a chance. I hope to make this a huge success. Writing for young people is my passion and I believe that strong messages can be given to them without preaching. This book not only tackles the issues of SPD and PTSD, but also instills a strong sense of family with a dash of young romance mixed in.

I have a very strong connection to the Native culture, as well as to the water element, and this book stemmed from a dream I had. When I 'Googled' Native legends about water healing, as I have always found healing from this element, I came across Brenda MacIntyre's website. She had a song called, "Crystal Clear" playing and her singing and drumming completely showed the feelings I have about water and it's healing ability. I was so inspired by her words and music, I felt compelled to write a book about it, and so The Water series was born.

I'm not sure if her site is still up, but I got to speak with her to let her know the inspiration she's had with her music. I have never underestimated the power of nature or music in their soothing, calming and healing capabilities. (Thank you, Brenda.)

We are going to be celebrating the kick off to this series all week with excerpts from the book, interviews with some of the characters as well as a few other goodies. And at the end of the week, I'll be giving away a couple of copies of the book.

What we can do today is share what YOUR healing element is and why. Don't be shy. Share your response here and we'll randomly choose a couple of you to win a free copy of the book.

Thank you for helping me celebrate this series. It is closer to my heart than you know.

Happy reading!

  1. I’d looove for you to peruse our 24 blogs;
    however, lemme first explain something:
    my solemn duty, dear, is to serve and honor you…

    I’d also love to giveth unto thee ideas
    simply because I love the girlish species:
    thots you never thot of,
    the picturesque protagonist, par excellence,
    the non-perishables, the luxurious ditzy-glitz:
    the generous, undiluted expansion of d’bizarre;
    the epic endoorphins – an open door to an
    onomatopoeia Vernacular,
    from the high-flying, barnstorming,
    toxic firewurKS from yeee-haw KS
    taking you in a completely new direction
    than where you originally planned!!
    O! the mind doth boggle, girly-whirly!!

    Why else does a moth fly FROM the night
    than to a bold, attractive candle Light??
    Don’t let His extravagant Brilliance be extinguished.
    You’re creative, yes?
    Then, fly-away with U.S. to the antidote…

    Whether you obtain morality4mortality to wiseabove
    or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
    you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
    which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile:
    I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

    Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
    of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
    An XtraXcitinXpose with no zooillogical-expiration-date?
    An IQ much higher than K2?
    An extraordinarily, anti-establishment-victory
    with both sardonic, satirical wit Who’s savvy
    and avant-guarde-humility??
    Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
    (with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

    “Faith, hope, and love,
    the greatest of these is love –
    jump into faith…
    and you’ll VitSee with love”
    Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
    God believes in you.

    Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
    from a super-passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
    nonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsX…
    of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

    Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big-Zaftig-House.
