My response surprised me!

This week we received a follow-up call from Nicks neurologist. Nicks seizure med blood levels weren’t optimal so he increased one of the doses of one of the meds. 

It is a dose Nick has taken before when we would be traveling and he needed extra meds to combat the stress of changing time zones. So we have done this before. It should have been no big deal. Except that it was. 

My eyes randomly filled up with tears. My thoughts spiraled into negativity. All the fearful things took center stage in my brain, demanding attention. 

For two days the fearful thoughts did have my attention. Then gradually my logical brain and positive sub conscious replaced the fear. 

I spent more time in prayer and reading scriptures. I reached out to family and especially Nick. I served others and took on a couple of volunteer assignments I knew I could accomplish. 

I now feel centered and balanced again. My world tilted for a few days and because of past experience I had ideas about what would help. I was surprised at how extreme my response was. It was emotional not logical. I have emerged from the dark experience and am back in the light.

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.
