Get to know the writer:
What is your novel about?
The Full Mood ~ A Priestess Tale is about two women from two very different lifetimes. Namu resides in the wilderness of England during the 800s. She struggles to stay true to her priestess ways while living in an era that forbids her to openly do so. Rose lives in modern times along the shore of Lake Michigan in the United States. Her challenge is to find, or one might say, to remember, the gifts she has to offer. They share one vision, for they are of one spirit. Their tragedies, joys and healing journeys are interwoven throughout a tale that reveals ancient truths and brings in the awareness of what heals us.
What genres would you say this story is in?
Fantasy Fiction, Romance
How would you describe this story in two words?
What movie have you seen the most in your life?
Message in the Bottle. This movie demonstrates how to let go of pain while surrendering to love, even if the time spent together is brief.
What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)
Stand by me ~ Ben E King, 1961. The title says it all.
Do you have an all-time favorite novel?
The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley. It’s the first book I ever read that showed strong women healers who were not constantly victimized.
What motivated you to write this story?
Having had a career in the healing arts all my life, I wanted to write something fast-paced and entertaining, while still bringing forth ancient healing methods.
If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive), who would that be?
The greatest healer of all time ~ Jesus! Plus, I heard he enjoys a little wine with his meal, as do I. And he knows this neat trick to make the food keep multiplying. We could probably end world hunger right there.
Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?
Nature! I love all weather ~ even the wicked.
What influenced you to enter your story to get performed?
I always thought this story would make a wonderful movie!
Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?
Write because it brings you joy. No matter what your age is or how small your social network is ~ just put it out there. It’ll make you feel like you’ve just given birth (in a good way)!
