Hello again everyone, this is the last one I have done which has been available on the Web within the last couple of days. It is a non-fiction piece with photographs of many of my paintings, two poems, my Tarot art, a preview of my next book (part of which is on this WordPress page), and previous versions and deleted scenes from The Heart Grows Stronger. Also you will find a short narrative about art in all its forms and my creative process. In it you just might discover that talent is not only an inborn ability, but also a gift to be developed. Like I have said in the book, I do hope you will consider creativity of your own.
Hi everyone, so before I talk more about myself, let me not neglect my family members and other authors. Grady Ward’s The Celestial Instruction is available for download at Amazon. He is my uncle; I have known him since I was a little girl, when my dad, his big brother, and my mom went to visit him. I am actually noted on his Wikipedia page. Before talking too much about him behind his back, let me just tell you that he is extremely intelligent and creative.
“Joex Barocco has got problems. As if it were not enough that his life as a software innovator is unraveling–a dark-suited stranger in an armored SUV is trying to assassinate him.
As Joex struggles to understand why he must die, he discovers a larger conspiracy against the West by forces secret, arcane and overwhelming. Will the total electronic financial and infrastructure cyberattack begin not just a war, but an entirely new civilization?
And why does the Universal Church of the Crux with its psychopathic genius leader Michael Voide lead the attack against Joex using both his corrupt followers within the government and his elite personal angels? Angels more familiar with a Glock than the Church’s Crux Inaequalis—the unbalanced cross.
Why would an old man in an unkempt warehouse near the harbor of Hangzhou need a fly whisk made from sapphire fiber and petabytes collected from the Celestial Sphere?
Can Joex connect with the adventurous woman Margaret who, in turn, knows the hidden gateway to the covert prophets Xtance and quant Jimmy Hoffa? And what crucial role does West African boy, Sam, who has a gift for the deep web have, even as he owns no shoes: is he–along with a troupe of MIT scientists, jugglers and libertines–the key to protecting our country?”
So, I’ve completed my collection of poetry and short anthology for children. Both are indeed very short: the collection of poetry, Poetry Beside Rippling Waters, was originally a chapbook, which I entered into a competition, but I didn’t win; however, the collection of poetry can neither be shortened nor lengthened, because it has a theme and tells a story in and of itself. The first children’s story, The Tiger Story, my mother actually created, who told it to me and my brother when we were little children at bedtime, and I later wrote it down. The next set of children’s stories, The Sarah and the Glass Castle Stories, also included in the anthology, both my mother and I created together at bedtime, and I later wrote down everything I could remember.
