As I tell young writers and older writers also who are trying to write their stories and share their thoughts with the world, via children’s books, books for adults, essays, novels or poetry, “WRITE YOUR TRUTH”..…
I am so thrilled with the new novel, Another Island, Another Moon and the way readers have responded to this great summer read. It is a love story for the ages and as you read this book, I want you to remember what LOVE feels like, what LOVE acts like and what Love gives to us and us to Love. I want you to remember the boat rides, the beaches, the islands off the Georgia Coast, the gift shop at the dock where the Ferry stops and loads visitors to go out to the edge of the beautiful Atlantic Ocean to visit Sapelo and the other barriers.
Every day of our lives, we make memories and the memories become a powerful Strong Tower where we can go when our lives sink low like a setting sun, or rise high like a morning sunrise over Saint Simons Island or Cumberland Island. Or better….that very real spot of Paradise, called Big Daddy Island on the Georgia coast. Yes, we can go home to our memories again and again and relive the times when love moved us like a drum beat deep inside our souls and because of that old, though somehow faded and fading drum beat and those faded pictures in our mind’s movie reel, we can make it. We stand tall and fall hard on our knees before the memories of the greatest moments of love that we hold dear.
Leave the rest alone. If it doesn’t knock you upside the head, don’t waste time on it…If your heart does not beat double, and you don’t have chills and or tears won’t fall, leave it and go on to something that will shake you to your bones.
