So this is my first blog. I'd always wanted to do a blog. So I thought I'd start it off by saying Hello! Hope you stay and come along for the ride. This is one of the views I've seen from my deck in the last few years. I take daily sunrise pictures and Sister Sunrise has afforded me some pretty spectacular shots that I've posted on my Facebook page.
On this blog, I'm going to be talking about me, my life, my experiences, my writing, Hildegard and my series, The Seven Keys of Hildegard. Yeah, especially my series. I think it's now my reason for being. The thing about The Seven Keys of Hildegard is that at first glance, it seems to be a religious story, which it is, and yet it's not.
I didn't want to write a "churchy" story. I tried awfully hard not to. I wanted it to be a wide ranging, thrilling, historical story about prophecies, the church and world events, murder, betrayal, hope, love and yes faith. It's more than that though. I wanted it to have appeal for all readers who would embark with me on this journey in Book 1 "Of Mercy & Of Death" from 1938 to 1958 and in Book 2, "Of Love & Of Betrayal" from 1958-1978. and then onward in the rest of the series to our time and just beyond. I wanted it be a spiritual journey because at the end of the day, we're all spiritual, in one form, faith or another.
I wanted The Seven Keys to be a story and a journey where we discover ourselves really and all that's right and wrong with the world, to find if there is hope for mankind. I believe there is. So did Hildegard. Join me on this journey.
