I hired the talented Cindy Pavlinac http://www.CAPavlinac.com to help me design some author shots. Her stunning photographs of sacred places has charmed me into a journey and has inspired some of the scenes in my stories. I also participated in a Labyrinth Walk in San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral last November. It was the highlight of the holiday season for me.
Heavenly Lover is being readied for release, and every time I drive by this stunning sculpture by local artist, Bryan Tedric, I’m filled with emotion. It is a sacred space for me. You can visit his website here: bryantedrick.com.
If you’ve been to Burning Man, this sculpture has been there too. These wings move back and forth in the breeze, catch light from all different angles at all times of the day.
When we shot this, the sky was initially gray, but as we continued shooting, the clouds parted, literally right there above my head, and we got wonderful striations and blue sky.
I’ve said before I’m a Christian with a bent antennae. I believe in good and evil and guardian angels everywhere, as well as much more. And so that’s the story I was driven to write.
I don’t dare to attempt to instruct anyone on anything religious, because it is to me something very personal. I’m not qualified to deliver a message. I’m creating a fantasy, something for entertainment. A movie in the mind. A world that might be, could be and is, in my mind only.
