When working in biology, I missed art. When working in art, I missed biology. It took a bout of multiple chemical sensitivities to limit me to writing. At last here was a niche in which I felt old-clothes comfortable. At last I could indulge all my interests, from art and science to nature and spirituality, from reality to fantasy. My most recent awards range from honorable mention to editor's choice for my science fiction and fantasy writing.
I live in Northern California with my husband of late years who thinks I'm the most beautiful lady he's ever met and tells me a hundred times a day in a hundred ways how much he loves me.

Water Pearl is a delightful fantasy about Skye's conflicts (living with a hateful man, living with the guilt of an unintended left, living just to survive) not only in his actions, but also with his feelings. Two opposing personalities war within him, one a Two-Tone (those who don't understand the feelings of others) and a Wildung (those who can sense many things about people and their environments). He tries to use both to his advantage in order to survive his trials in life. This only leaves him confused and lonely.
The author has done a fantastic job in world-building--from its religious and political stances to its magical forests and temples in the sky. Skye is not the only one who has to make decisions about how he will live his life. The people of the kingdom must put aside their beliefs and choose their own way of thinking.
From start to finish, I was never pulled out of this world.
I was given a fee copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
