The Memoir about searching for truth in God is with the publisher. The Cover is being worked upon.
This life journey was not written to draw attention to me but is about a God I searched to find from the age of six. I knew He was more than just the stories of Jesus I was taught from the Bible but was so much BIGGER in the spiritual world than folks were prepared to talk to me about. I saw angels and knew there were spirits around not of light but it took a lifetime of living before I came to be this old lady who strongly KNEW she had to leave a record.
My story is about HIM. I never wanted to write about me . This Book will one day be a story of a life journey. He inspired SHAFTS and said Do it!
The picture above is a cliff walk challenge from a few years ago. It is my life at present recovery one step at a time.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
