New Stories, Old Book. Whether they are blatantly obvious or super subtle, so many of our favorite fairytale, fables, novels, movies, television shows, and songs are really just that, a new story based off of the world’s oldest and most popular book.
Through the years, I have been inspired by so many titles that are too numerous to mention in just one post. That is why I am excited to have the opportunity to discuss my favorite stories with you each week, and more importantly, I can’t wait to hear your perspective. I was captivated by the divine elements in the City of Angels, moved by the story of It’s a Wonderful Life, thrilled by The Exorcist, and enlightened by The Red Tent. It is amazing how you can find theological elements in everything from Superman to The Lion King.
I was raised in a catholic family, yet have always been interested in many religions and faiths. I have welcomed the journey of discovering and growing in my own personal faith and spirituality while being open and understanding to others. It is fascinating to explore humankind’s need for discovery and interpretation of spirituality and to identify my own connection to angels, particularly Archangel Michael.
My novel Jinx was a natural story for me. In telling Jinx’s tale I wrote about those things that I hold dear to me; angels, natural energies, military,history, fashion, friendships, pets, and love. Jinx is a coming of age love story about a young girl who discovers the truth of who she really is, a member of the Guardians, semi mortal angels who walk among people and are meant to help society during unstable times. It is trendy, funny, action filled story that will have you looking for angels. Jinx is the first book in a proposed trilogy.
I have a new Work In Progress (WIP) that will also naturally fall into the biblical fanfic category. This new effort is exciting for me as it is the complete opposite of Jinx and a much darker tale. It has been thrilling to create.
Thank you for joining us on this journey, we are so excited to connect with each of you. Please feel free to contact me via the blog or by email at any time. I look forward to meeting you and engaging in many interesting discussions!
