Life is a Dance.

Sometimes lyrics will stick in my head and roll around there for days at a time.  It is as if they are my specific mantras for a little while.  Recently it has been John Michael Montgomery’s song released in 1992, “Life’s a dance you learn as you go. Don’t worry about what you don’t know.”

Much of the worry that I feel is concerned with things I either don’t know or things that I can’t change.  I have heard it said that worry is a waste of time.  Knowing both of those things, doesn’t seem to change the fact that I find myself worrying.

Oh, I stay in that worry mindset a much shorter time than I have previously in my life.  I catch myself and by repeating some of the statements and lyrics that I have become familiar with, it does help me shift my thinking from what is stressing me out towards more positive and uplifting thoughts.

I love Dori in the animated film, “Finding Nemo.”  She keeps telling herself, “Just keep swimming,” when faced with things that are difficult.  That is what I want to remember, just keep on moving, keep on dancing.  Whatever is happening today will not remain the same.  Change is something I can count on.

Announcing that I have finished a book with the working title of “The Fairy Fort.” I am currently pitching it to publishers. Keep checking back to watch the progress of my newest novel.

Here is a quick glimpse of the story.

Sarah Doherty is an 18-year-old living in rural Ireland at the tail end of the Great War. Plagued by severe epilepsy, she is protected by her parents and lives a sheltered, secluded, lonely life. The Fae, local Irish fairies, interfere with her life. She falls forward a century in time through the local fairy fort of standing stones. She had a seizure in 1918 and woke up in 2020. The 21st century world includes life-saving prescriptions, physical comforts and the independence and freedom she seeks. The locals are welcoming and Andy Mclaughlin, a handsome young historian, is intriguing. She doesn’t want to return home.

Then a letter arrives from Boston divulging the story of Sarah and Andy’s lives that are deeply entwined in the previous century. They are not yet in love but as they seek to verify the letter through online resources, they feel a growing obligation to their unborn family and to each other. What would happen to their posterity living in Boston if they don’t return to 1918? Even if they do make it back, her parents can never know what happened to her or that would change everything.

This Young Adult time-travel romance explores the question: Do we have the freedom to make choices or is free will an elaborate illusion?

This is my third book. I love reading time travel romances. I am an advocate for epilepsy awareness because my 43-year-old son has intractable epilepsy. As a genealogist specializing in Irish research, I live part of the year in the village where the story is based. I wrote the book to help young adults understand that difficult situations can change your life. Sometimes miraculously.
