I live on a small island just off a larger island off the coast of North America where I write romance, sci-fi, and fantasy/adventure for a wider audience.
What's my super power? I'm a storyteller, an entertainer. As you begin to read my words the stress of the day, nay, the stress of everyday, begins to magically fade away. Transported into another world, your worries and troubles are forgotten for a time as you share adventures with me and my friends. My art, my power is as old as humankind, for the magic of the storyteller has ever been with us and it will always be.
Okay, I'll confess, I've been busted. I was accused of once being a life coach and hiding some of those techniques in my books, disguised as adventure.
Guilty as charged. sigh.
I was also accused of lightly touching on a number of taboo subjects in my books, trying to shine a different light on things.
Guilty as charged again.
As a result of these transgressions, I have been labeled an underground writer.
Oh the shame of it all. (Hangs head and moves slowly towards penalty box.)
I am a spiritual seeker, dog trainer, official Reiki Master and Interior designer, who has turned her hand to writing. I am also an avid chess player, not a great one, but an avid one. I bake, I build, I knit, and I tell great stories.
I have roamed far and wide for over sixty years in this realm, and I have seen much; some I wish I had not, and a great deal that I would love to see again. Some days I feel like Bilbo Baggins, for I have been there and come back again.
No, I haven't written a book about my wanderings, at least not yet, but much I have experienced, observed, learned, surmised, or imagined, is woven into the tales I have written.
Folks, if you take the time to write a review for me, please leave me a way to contact you so I can thank you properly. If you prefer to remain anonymous, then let me thank you right now. Thanks!!

Through all the ups and downs of her life, and there seem to have been many, Prudence MacLeod has somehow developed a belief in the inherent goodness of human beings. People make bad mistakes, yes, but they can also choose to change and grow until they become their better selves, sometimes in a way they couldn't have imagined. I can't think of any other writer who shows this with such benevolence. The fact that some of her stories are about what might be considered controversial relationships makes this benevolence more special and even endearing.

This was wonderfully written and really helps people understand a world that is right beneath our very eyes, which many refuse to recognize. I can't wait for your next story!
