F. E. Feeley is a great author and a gifted poet. I read several of his books and loved them. Of course, I got this one too and I’m sure, I’ll be enthusiastic!

BLURB

Maplewood, Vermont is a picturesque town filled with unique shops, unique homes, and a quaint familiarity all centered around a lake with an unusual history.

Legends, old as well as Urban, float around like the mist that hovers above the lake at break of dawn.

But they’re just stories, right?

Hayden Moore’s life was destroyed when his husband, Malcolm, was murdered. Giving up his job as an assistant district attorney in Boston, Hayden moved to the little burg of Maplewood to recover.

A new life.

A fresh start.

However, something underneath the water is stirring. Something rotten. A deadly secret wakes underneath the black waters of Lake Veronica so disturbing it haunts the nightmares of the local residents.

It’s coming closer…

I am a child of the moon
I come to the window clad in my pajama bottoms
teddy bear dragging along the floor with me
and i stare out into a wintry scene
from the second floor

All is still in the world of white
the sky is purple and dark
and the moon is out full and heavy
and the snow burns in celestial light

A heating register begins to hum
it’s warm wind wrapping around me like a prayer
I raise my hand and touch the glass
feeling the cold radiate through me
up my arm and into my heart

Below, a stag has wandered into view
noble, white chested, chestnut body 10 points easy
his delicate feet and easy stride
leaving imprints on the once unbroken sea of white lawn

He raises his nose, looks this way and that
and comes even closer to…

3 Day Quote Challenge – Day one

I would like to thank Patricia Garcia for inviting me to participate in this 3-Day Quote Challenge. Her blogs and writing as well as her music are an inspiration to me. Patricia Garcia is an amazing personality, a wonderful person and a loyal and caring friend. That’s how I want to be when I grow up.

 

A few years back I was in the middle of a phase in my life where I had problems to focus on my goals. I got overrun by all the bad things happening to the same time. I’ve always been a person to work on trouble or on problems when they show up and eliminate them to continue concentrating on the important things. But at that particular time trouble seemed to know where I was and waited there for me. Being overwhelmed it all felt to be much more than I could handle.

I was always dreaming of being a writer and a published author, but the time back then pulled me into a deep hole where I couldn’t find out anymore.

I followed many advices, too many to be effective, but one advice was a good idea: get distraction. Laugh whenever you can do that. Watch a funny movie, read a funny book and do whatever you can to calm down, which is essential to focus and work on things.

 

I decided to do that and found myself in front of the TV to have fun watching “10 things I hate about you”, with Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles. Heath Ledger played Patrick Verona, a boy in his final High School year.

At one point Pat Verona tells a co-student:

 

“Don’t let anyone ever make you feel like you don’t deserve what you want!!”

 

This quote has changed my view on things and challenged me so enormously, I found the strength to do what needed to be done and continue following my dream.

I found true inspiration, just out of a funny teenage movie. And the quote is still with me to this day, on a poster at the door to the room where I usually write.

What quote or quotes has changed one of your mindset and has inspired you to change?

I would like to invite the three writers whom I have gotten to know to join me by sharing some of their inspirational quotes in the 3 Day Challenge at their convenience.  Their blogs are an inspiration to me and help me very much within the task to become a true writer. I invite you to visit them and be inspired.
