I am an individual that loves to show my creative side. I started to painting many years ago but found my eyes to be dimming. I instead turned my inner eye towards the story telling part of me. There I found an inexhaustible amount of things I would like to turn into a unique and exciting story. Fiction is where I excel.
I live in Maine where many other creative people have come to visit but never left. So many famous artists live here. I feel lucky to counted to be among them, other than the famous part just yet.
I am currently working on an exciting new book series call Joan Darcy and the 27th Observer. The first is written and will be available soon. It is titled, The Telescope of Elsewhere. The second is in the process of penned and this book is called the In the Eye of the Beholder. Watch closely, new things are happening.

We get to see the wonderful beginnings of a man who became more generous this year at his business’s Christmas party. In years past he was mostly a miser but the new change in this holiday seasons get-together is festive and giving. He shows his gratitude toward his greater life by giving generous gifts from around the world to his staff.
Frank, the newest member of his staff, is impressed by the fun at the party. His wife, Ellie, is equally pleased by the affair. When the gifts are unwrapped to ooh’s, and aah's Frank becomes expectant. But when he receives the poorest of all the gifts laid out that night, an old box filled with sand, he feels left out.
The story is about what Frank’s poor man’s gift really is as it begins to reveal itself over the seven days before Christmas. It is a story about love, tragedy, faith and hope. The poorest gift turned out to be the greatest gift of them all. Patrick Meservier was careful to wind a story that pulled at my heart at every corner.
I admit, hesitantly, that I can be weepy when reading a good story and this one doesn’t fail in that regard. It broke my heart open and filled it with hope. A constriction in my throat tells me that I will remember this story for a long time to come. If doesn’t pull at your heart, you may want to change your type of literature to non fiction to discover why.
