The mental imagery of 'A carpet of purple flowers’ inspired me in such a magical way, that I felt compelled to write my first novel.

My mind raced as folklore came entwined with love, fate entwined with choice, science entwined with spiritual teachings - all guiding me to write a romance that revolves around a karmic cycle.

Once I placed pen to paper, the story began to grow into a much greater tale. Maybe, every creative word whimsy that I have ever envisaged and not acted on, has waited until now to be brought to life. I still have much to learn, but this journey has been an incredible experience, and through trial and error, I'm growing more each day. Please, never give up your dream. <3

In the story, I share with you a secret place in which only a parted veil exposes. An ethereal realm in which otherworldly, angelic-type beings, tend to a well of souls.

It is here, I take the reader on a brief, visual journey to the home of these elementals called, 'The Sindria', their home is known as 'Calageata'. It's here that the purple flower of Vororbla grows, emitting a thick mist ready to greet the essence of a soul.

The protagonist, Bea, has many emotional conflicts throughout this tale, and they relate, in part, to our own realities...

What keeps us going when the world can feel so harsh?

Where do we draw our strength from in times of need?

What urges us to carry on when things become extremely overwhelming and too much to bear?

We all know the answer... it comes from within.

Somewhere, deep inside, a light refuses to fade.

This light (our inner strength) may become less bright for a time, but in its fading, it is re-energising, and will soon awaken from sleep.

Once, our inner light screams out its very last ray of hope, the sleeping energy awakes, re-igniting the inner dimming ray. It is reminiscent of an illuminating birth of a far away star, and from apparent nothingness, wondrous brightness can evolve. The Sindria teach…

'To be able to shine more brightly, one's light must first fade.’

In the book, I mention to 'keep your light bright' as we've all experienced, at some point in our lives, a time when nothing makes sense, a time when life can feel like it's too much, and I really wanted to send out an important message – that you are so much more than what you initially see, and to remember, a fading light secretly masks an eternity. Our light never truly diminishes, and we can always shine bright, again.
