Thank you for your interest. For those who are curious, my educational background is in history and religion. I have lived in California and in Liverpool and I love them both. My heart is divided with an ocean in between.
"Write what you know," they say. So that's what I have done, for although the characters in my book are fictional, they were inspired by real people. Many of the events (e.g. pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving) and conversations were based on personal experiences. Beyond the Blue Door was a labor of love and the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. I am under no illusions about my work. I never intended for it to be great literature. It is merely a fun diversion, something that I hope will make you smile. May you enjoy reading Beyond the Blue Door as much as I enjoyed writing it.
