In The Girl of Sand & Fog, I've released my first new millennium girl coming-of-age, and in it poor Kaley goes through all the trials of a girl in our modern world. How she sees the world is different. How she interacts with friends, loves, and meets her challenge is different than her mother, Chrissie from The Girl on the Half Shell. How she talks is different. What she hopes for is different. Even her HEA is different.
Time is marching forward, the world is constantly in change, for me, my daughters, my grandson, and even my book daughters: Kaley, Chrissie, Linda, and soon Krystal. But at the center of all our too quickly changing existence, there seems to be still the greatest of universal truths: hope exists in love.
Have a marvelous Halloween. Be safe. Be well. Look out for the little ones if you are somewhere where elaborately costumed children still knock on your door for candy.
And as ever I wish you Peace.
