Author Davs Aujourd'hui
The life of an author is an interesting one. For the first four years I was writing my series, I pumped out one book after another. After the first two became published, I had another challenge on my hands. I had to market "The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude" and "Babes in Bucksnort". One of the primary ways I did this was to write these articles for my blogs. I wrote a series of articles about my books and facets of my personal life.
In between writing articles and doing interviews, I have had periods of inspiration when I have written other books. I have now completed eleven books in the Sister Mary Olga Fortitude series. I have also written an e-book about my personal recovery on many fronts. Recently, I completed a reincarnational romance about a couple that travels through three lifetimes together.
I have also been hard at work editing my many books. This is not an easy chore. While the content has been excellent, it is so easy to make minor mistakes which are difficult to pick out. It's much better to have someone else do the editing.
I also devote a lot of time to personal healing. Following a lifetime filled with much despair and harmful behaviors, I have found help through therapy and twelve-step programs. This has taken me on a spiritual odyssey in which I have made many important self-discoveries which I freely share with my readers in my e-book, Putting the Pieces Together, and in my author blog.
My creativity and my spirituality have been my most important outlets. I interject many of my own spiritual awakenings in my books. It is my hope that it will help others who are on a spiritual journey.
I belong to a transdenominational church that embraces the sacred truths of all religions. Yet it is primarily based upon the teachings of Jesus. It is a church that practices affirmation and practical application of spiritual principles that are taught there.
I also am a student of the Course in Miracles. It is a course that was channeled by a psychologist who realized she was channeling correct teachings of Jesus. The basic premise is that we are on a journey to discover our spirits and to let go of our egos. In so doing, we will find our pathway back to peace, joy and love.
It is my desire to pass on the joy of laughter to you in my books. Perhaps you may also discover a piece of yourself in my characters. Just be gentle with yourself and prepare to laugh.
