This is a wonderful book award. I've entered for the last two years (won Silver this time). The facebook group is super supportive and the honest feedback from the kids is priceless. 
Last year, Safkhet Publishing entered Grumpy Old Menopause for The Wishing Shelf Awards and as I reported last month it won a silver award. Now, before your eyes glaze over and you think I'm crowin...

Gathering the threads
I hope you're enjoying my Meme Series because I am.  This series of memes (and there are many more to come) should give you an idea of how complicated it is to twist together a trilogy.  It's like holding dozens of live wires and then dipping your toe in a ...

Story
Tagline
Living with two crazy mutts, a puzzled husband, and an overactive imagination. In her spare time, she builds worlds.
Introduction
I believe we humans have lost our compassion, our empathy, our humanity. I also believe we can regain these vital emotions by exploring our ancient legends. 

Our ancestors developed a rich mythology to explain natural phenomena, and to establish the mores of their culture, but modern humans have abandoned those myths because we knew better. However, in doing so, we lost something. So I have returned to the legends of the Norse, my ancestors. Trolls, Dragons, Fairies, and other fantastical beings inhabited their world. They were unquestionably real to the Vikings. But time passed and we rushed through the industrial revolution, world wars, the space age, and now the microprocessor age. We know better, but we have lost our connection to the natural world.

I've always felt like a misfit, adrift in a confusing society and misaligned with my friends, my family, my lover--everyone. Then it hit me: We All Feel Like a Misfit.

I returned to macro photography, a passion I had abandoned years earlier, but I had recently rediscovered. As I snapped photos of unique features on the forest floor, I began to imagine tiny, hidden, and misunderstood creatures still living as they always had, but we had forgotten them. Time had plodded on, and they too had changed, but they had never forgotten.

It's important that I place my characters on an unspoiled landscape. Like me, they are fascinated, grateful, and even a little fearful of the natural world. It's important that I remain respectful when I graft new limbs onto ancient legends. So if you feel lost or alone, a misfit in the sterile, modern world read the Legends of the Aurora to regain your humanity.
