As a kid, I absolutely adored reading for pleasure! When school was out during the summer, my very favorite thing would be getting a fat stack of books from the library and diving into new worlds like a solo adventurer. The phrase ‘summer reading’ brings up the fond memory of our local library’s annual summer reading contest. Each year, the Mt. Healthy library held a scavenger hunt style reading competition, divided by age, for kids.
There would be a list that you’d have to complete with a short summary of the book that applies to each suggestion. Every summer, I would complete the reading challenge as soon as possible to gain the delicious reward of a bakery gift card and name posted in the library’s window all summer long! Sweets and bragging rights? What more does a nerd girl need?! But even without this external challenge, I was “that kid”, always with a book under her nose, even when school was out.
I am grateful for the cosmic timing that resulted in The Goddess Twins being launched as a ‘Summer Reading Book’. It’s got witty and expressive characters, an intriguing family mystery, and unique mythology of magical and Caribbean origin. It so definitely qualifies as a treat for the mind and I hope readers enjoy folding themselves into this tale. From conception, I intended to create the type of story that the younger me would have loved to read. I can verydefinitely picture my teenage self, lying stomach down on my bed, reading this book from day to night! I’m excited to present an escape into a thrilling feminist universe. I cannot wait to hear how readers feel about their adventure into the world of The Goddess Twins! It’s finally out dear friends, available NOW through IndieBound and Amazon!
