After about a year and a half of research, including speaking with those who claim to have had some interaction with a UFO or experienced what they describe as "spiritual" unexplainable phenomena, I am inspired to write my next novel. It's a topic that's always intrigued me - whether or not there is intelligent life elsewhere in the universe.
This book will offer a unique perspective about what that could potentially look like, who and what may be out there, where they live, their role in the universe, and how they, the earth, human beings, and even the spiritual realm could all be intertwined.
I certainly don't have the answers, but I love wondering about it. The world I create in this next book will have you truly wondering about it, too.
The Warwick Rotary Club graciously invited me to speak about that which I am so passionate... my writing career, my four novels - which all feature scenes set in historic Rhode Island, as well as my rewarding work at Care New England. I truly enjoyed meeting and speaking with members, and answering their questions. Thanks to rotary member John Howell, publisher of the Warwick Beacon, Cranston Herald, and other newspapers, for the invite. What made the day extra special - so many of my amazing co-workers showed up to support me personally and professionally, and also helped carry heavy boxes filled with books, easels, and shot video and photographs. When I arrived at work in the morning I had a dozen beautiful red roses waiting for me on my desk, to cheer my on. Thanks, Krystal Cardin!
