Sometimes Miracles Take Time✨

Updated: Apr 3

Dear Friends,

There is change in the air. 2024 is shaping up to be a year to be reckoned with. So many people are seeking to make a change toward a more meaningful life.

Personally, I am changing direction with where I’ve been going in my writing and illustrating. I have always been more interested in the why of art and writing. For me, it’s been my key to unlocking the mental health crises that followed me throughout my growing up years. Being able to express the inexpressible gave me the strength to keep going. It lit the path forward when everything seemed so dark.

For the past five years I have been involved in healing myself through energy medicine and now I practice energy medicine on people and animals. Sometimes miracles take time, but the changes in my life are nothing short of miraculous.

I have really struggled with how to incorporate this new part of my life with the very real, sacred journey of creating and sharing art and writing. I’m still not sure, to be honest; all I know to do is to take the next step forward and be truthful about where I’m at.

I am ill-suited to the “business” of writing: the staying “on-brand”, the self-promotion, the relentless postings on social media. My brain doesn’t work that way, and when I have tried to do those things, to run my writing/illustrating as a “business,” the joy of it drains away and I am left with the husk of why I started doing the work in the first place.

I can’t keep up with those demands, and must let some things go. I will be closing my private Facebook group down, and focusing my energies on not only promoting mental health through writing and illustrating, but also helping others reach their highest selves so they can live lives of meaning and purpose.

This year I will be starting a second website, one that is devoted to healing and mental health. I am hopeful that somehow these many aspects of my life can dovetail into a clear path of service.

I recognize that many of you subscribed to this because I am a fantasy fiction writer, as well as a children’s author/illustrator. I still am. But the content of what I write about will now encompass things that I deeply care about, that may have little to do with the “business” of writing but all about finding the joy of creativity and walking “the hero’s journey” in real life.

Like so many people now, I see time as fleeting and precious. I wish to live with meaning and I invite you to share your thoughts with me about the same for you.
