An awe inspiring and gripping story that will captivate the reader and provoke reflection.
I emerged traditionally kicking and screaming on the 23rd of January under the astrological sign of Aquarius...Water bearers are considered to be eclectic, imaginative, free spirited thinkers, who pour new life into culture...they are the mystics, idealists, reformers, and most of all the communicators of the zodiac fraternity.... Being typical of my sign communicating ideas and delving into the realm of imagination is my nature...I read somewhere once, that as one looks back on one's life a constant talent keeps surfacing, and that that one thing is what you are meant to be doing, the goal that you must pursue if you are to find your true niche in the world... As I look back, writing is the predominant constant in my life and after years of detour, ( working as a Civil Servant for twenty two years, Managing Director of a real estate business I built from scratch) I am privileged to finally channel my energy in the pursuit of a dream that was born a long time ago, becoming a writer... I begun writing at a very young age, always penning thoughts, reading with a dictionary by my side. When I write I am transported to a world where anything is possible... My fingers race the keyboard, the noise of the world drowns as characters become alive, as a matrix of plots, sub plots naturally begin to entwine, the story gaining body, flowing, whilst I am already envisioning a fitting climax.... For most of my life I have been a 'closet writer', writing short stories as a young girl, poetry as an adolescent, inspired by the world around me, my perception of the latter, influenced by the altruistic idealism of my astral sign. After winning the annual Gibraltar Culture competition, for my poem 'Trees to bone' a poem from my recent book 'Echoes of Life' I felt empowered to embark on my lifelong ambition, writing a long overdue novel... 'The Feather' a fast paced contemporary narrative, inspired by altruistic ideals, spirituality and a desire to create a story that provokes reflection, is the fruit of a year's work. Privileged life has given me the opportunity to dedicate myself to my true passion, I am very excited at the prospect of sharing my creation with all of you....
