I will be sharing parts of my writing every week (alternating between Arabesque and Persephone) as I write them (with the exception of some parts of Arabesque, which were written previously), so please be patient with any errors you may find, as these are a first drafts.
Arabesque will always be special to me. Not only because it's what first got me into writing and publishing, but because I started writing it in the middle of my darkest days—when I was just learning to cope with my health's decline, depression, anxiety, and my world seemed bleakest. I was still a new mom, and any time at all that I could steal away for myself was sacred. When the kids finally settled into their beds and my body sore and exhausted, I'd snuggle into my chair with my notebook and iPod, and escape to the land of Acacia.
I hope your visit there is as magical as mine.
When Erik, my husband, saw this in his Facebook feed, he started jumping and shouting, "Sweetie, look! You've gotta see this!"
I'm excited to share with you my own retelling of Persephone (whose name I mispronounced for years!) This myth has many versions but always left so much to the imagination (and believe me, my imagination went wild). I'll be sharing parts of the books as I write them (alternating between Arabesque and Persephone), so please be patient with any errors you may find, as these are first drafts! Start reading the first chapter here.
