What is next from the author of The Goddess Twins?

There really is not a single word that can describe the feeling of knowing readers of The Goddess Twins have been loving the book. I really wish I knew that word and I could just say it – blissful, overwhelming, gratitude, excitement, pride – but something that combines those feelings would be about in the ballpark. To know I have taken even a single mind on a ride, into my own delightfully woven world, is amazing and I have been overwhelmed by this, each and every time.

For me, I think about when I visited ‘The Wizarding World of Harry Potter’, and rode the ride, and could get my own wand, and was completely inside and out of a world that first started as an idea inside someone’s mind! Well, of course, there is now a lot of discussion on the separation of a creation from the creator, but just that – that once a creation is out and made, it can become something uniquely special to each receiver. I am grateful for the feeling of magic, of being swept away by a story that felt as close as my own, and know authors are gifted if they are able to create that for even one reader.

With that being said, I know what I did by leaving my debut novel with a mystery/cliff hanger! Yes, I wanted readers who got that far in the story to be left wanting more! That’s always the mark of a good showman, right? Heh, so I am excited to say, yes, I do forsee at least one follow up story to The Goddess Twins existing at some point in the future, and that’s not even getting into the side adventures/characters/goddesses that also would love some space to breathe! I am allowing these energies to have their time in telling me their stories, but I would love to continue writing in this universe, as well as others.

But first, the script for the movie….
