Hi all! Okay, it has been a long time since I’ve posted… I am definitely embarrassed about that and am saying sternly to myself: I will be better about posting!
BUT, I do have exciting news! My novel, The Truth is a Theory, has just launched and is now available on amazon.com! Yikes! Exciting and scary.
This novel is a labor of love. It took me over 12 years to write, waking up before the sun to grab a little time in the hush of a sleeping house, when the only sound was the tap tap of my keyboard and the sigh of the coffee percolating; before alarms went off and the house shook to life, before 3 kids clamored down the stairs, before breakfast and backpacks and briefcases and clients. For a while, I was embarrassed that it was taking years and years and that my perennial answer was yes, I was “still writing the book”. The word still dripped with chagrin.
But now I see it differently. I see the still as tenacity, as grit. And now that the book is done, now that it is actually a tangible thing in my hand, on our kitchen counter, I hope that I have taught my kids that dreams can absolutely come true, but not without sweat, patience, and determination.
And going forward, I hope that their own stills will be drenched in pride.
The book is women’s fiction, and it is the story of the assumptions we make about important people in our lives, and how these fatally flawed “truths” play out for four women friends. One of the primary threads in the novel is–can you guess?–that the main character’s marriage is falling apart. In the Acknowledgments at the back of the book, I thank Sue Johnson for creating EFT, as once I started training in EFT, I was able to see and clarify the negative cycle that I was writing about without even knowing it.
I would be honored if you would take a look and perhaps put it on your reading list for the summer. And if you like it, please spread the word and/or post a review on Amazon or goodreads.com!
