About six years ago I was driving to the coast on Highway 34, a road that twists through the Oregon coastal range that separates the ocean from the valley. I remember passing through a lush rainforest with ferns as thick as curtains. Coming from the flat farmlands of Wisconsin, I was caught in a world that was so different from what I knew it felt surreal most of the time. It made me fall in love with trees, with nature, and with getting unplugged and being fully aware, and in the moment. That drive inspired the opening journal entry for AWAKEN.
Six years later, the trilogy’s come to a close with STILL POINT. If you want to know more behind the meaning of the title which was inspired by Sting’s song, LOVE IS THE SEVENTH WAVE (great song), check out an old post I wrote.
Happy Book Birthday to STILL POINT! I had so much fun writing this series. It was challenging, sometimes terrifying, but more than anything, it was inspiring. I grew up alongside Maddie. Life lessons, struggles and personal experiences I had flooded into these books. These characters are close to my heart and I’ll never forget them. Thanks for taking the time to read this series. I hope it’s inspired you to carve out your own path and live in the moment.
Okay, I’ll stop babbling now so you can READ.
