Just to let you know early - the JLB Creatives Blog will be taking time off over the upcoming holiday season. Regular weekly posts will end on Nov. 14th with an Author Splash of Carolyn Arnold, and will return Nov. 28th with an Author Splash of Ilil Arbel. Then in December, regular weekly posts will stop on Dec. 19th which will be a very special post for the season which will remain until regular weekly posts resume on Jan. 9th with an Author Splash of Lorhainne Eckhart.
This week is an Author Splash for the very talented Linda Hawley. Her latest book, "The Guardian of Time" which is the sequel to her highly successful release of "Dreams Unleashed."
- Lots of varied life experience, to give enough flavor
- World travel experience, for color
- Passion, for spice
- A few crazy relationships, to create perspective
- One or two quirks, to add a little crunch
- Deep love, to introduce spirit
- Curiosity, to add a little danger
- A touch of paranoia, to interject alternate realities
- Lots of knowledge about current events, for texture
- Pride and humility, to bring human characteristics
- A touch of insanity, for interest
These characteristics have made their way into the pages that you read. My head is filled with stories, and The Prophecies trilogy is only the first that's on paper. Writing it has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. Many of the subplots and undertones of the trilogy came from my own life experiences.
I could tell you all about my higher education, my freelance writing experience, and a bunch of other professional qualifications, but do you (the reader) really care about that? My guess is that you care more that I write compelling novels that take you into a new world, if only for a while.
Thank you for reading my stories.
