Thoughts about why-

My rating: <a href=" of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
Thanks to everyone who read the book!  Thank you so much for all of your feedback- Here is a new blog that came out today. I thought her interview questions are poingent and reflect well on the story and why it was written. <a href="" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"></a> <br /><br />I write from my heart- using bits and pieces of various people I have worked with over the years as a counselor and social worker.  In the stories, people can overcome tragedy and perhaps have a good outcome; while in life they may have had a tragic end.  It's healing somehow, to write about the tragic souls I have known- they live on in the characters and are released from the hidden corners of my mind. Someone wisely told me once "write what you know - the ink on paper will act as poison draining from your soul".  <br /><br />As a side note-  the wonderful folks who reviewed and rated, whom are also on my friends list, became friends after they read the book-  someone asked about "friends" voting-  I have never met nor spoken with anyone who reviewed or voted- aside from sending them a thank-you or a ebook.  <br /><br />I think this quote sums up the soul of a book eloquently:<br />    “Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.” ― Carlos Ruiz Zaf√≥n, The Shadow of the Wind <br /><br />
