The reason I write and the readers I’m trying to reach (hopefully you).
In the midst of plenty, she lives in want, until she embraces the spirit of surrender. Silicon Valley resident Marjorie Veil’s sense of reality frays when she begins hearing a voice when no one is there. Afraid that she’s losing her mind, she goes on a soul-searching journey to remote Carmel Valley. But she does not find the reprieve she desires. Instead, she encounters Morgan Van Dyke, whose romantic interest in her is a distraction she can ill afford. She then meets an identical twin sister she didn’t know she had, another blow to her already fragile sense of self. And finally, she befriends a mute and orphaned Native American child, who gives her his most valued possession, a mouse totem, thus introducing her to the power of selfless love. BETWEEN WILL AND SURRENDER, book one of the "Enter the Between" Visionary Fiction series, is a paranormal adventure of personal growth and transformation that takes the reader on a visionary journey into the wilds of the Los Padres National Forest, home of the Esselen, one of the smallest Native American populations in California nearly exterminated as a result of Spanish Missions. Readers are introduced to the teachings of the Native American Medicine Wheel, which can be applied to their personal journeys toward self-discovery. Like the fires that blaze through the Los Padres National Forest, the mysterious voice in Marjorie Veil’s head burns the frameworks that imprison her—her limiting beliefs, her old patterns of thought—transforming them into blackened snags, a perfect habitat for the seeds of awareness buried deep inside her to burst into life.
A pragmatic “seeker” experiences a crisis of faith when she confronts the spirit of her dead mother.
