SECRETS * INNOCENCE * BETRAYL * DEATH
"A daughter's future...a mother's past"
They say that life is a beautiful thing. And they're right. But life is also, hard, demanding, and sometimes, not as glamorous as we lady's would like. And as a woman, life can even be cruel. As mothers, life defines us. As daughters, life molds us. As sisters, life redefines us. As women, life dictates, and changes us.
We are God's creation; a creation known to man as beauty. Beauty being defined in many ways; so be careful. We are strong. We are born woman so we are powerful. We carry the strengths that was once our mother's burdens. We are driven by intuition because we are wise. We are Queens because we hold the key to our families kingdom. And We are all women with something important to offer the world.
Our gender is what drives the man, and WE control the wheel.
But we are women before we are mothers, someones daughter, or sister. And when we are hurt, we can destroy. The journey to YOU ( that awesome woman down deep inside of you that's screaming to be heard), the journey unfortunantly might not be easy. It may not always be glamorous. And you may fall several times along the way. But if you will be opened, and nurture that pain correctly--giving it the attention it rightfully deserves, you will be glorious, because pain is reachable, and we are WOMEN
I have dabbled through the pages of fantasy with my characters of DejaVe: Secrets. I have drank blood with some really interesting characters in Cravings: Two Bloodlines
But I wouldn't be Marie without my true voice. So I am very pleased to introduce to you, my first family...the characters in, String of Pearls, the novel.
Creating the characters for Sting of Pearls, was both enjoyable and difficult at the same time. I found myself backstroking, hitting that delete key. Asking myself, should I really allow my character to go through such pain? In the end, the pain won. Not because I liked it, or it felt good. But because I am a woman. I am a mother and sister. And in my world unfortunately, love and pain coexist, and they must be recognized and faced if there can be change. I have come to love these characters, and I have nurtured them through the lives which I have given them, while sitting in a chair, typing away, at my laptop. Each character is unique, and authetic. Writing them into the world which they must breath, until I decide that they have grown, learned, or risen above their tragedy has not been easy. Thier journey is not sweet or cute. But through their journey; you just might find someone closes to you, a distant friend, or maybe even yourself.
But isn't that what a great book is meant to do?
