The Living Hunger, the title of my second book is more than just a blog. It's an urge that drives readers and writers to investigate, create and consume. Explore the possibilities with me, as I share my works and others in our quest to satisfy that 'Hunger'.

A Love Story With Heart
I recently purchased a book that tackles the tough issue of violence against women and date-rape. It is handled with finesse and understanding by Author Mary Crawford. So the Heart Can Dance is a tender story of young friendship that develops into something more, while helping to heal a woman's soul. It is a read that will touch your heart -- be ready with the tissues.
For most, between birth
and death, lies years of hope, family, and love.However, along that winding road that leads
from one to the other, sometimes the unthinkable mars the journey, perpetuating
heartache and unending despair.Tara
Isamu, a dancer blessed with grace and elegance, lives a remarkable life.She sees her future as joyful and bright...but
that all changes in an instant, when a single, rage-filled act of violence
steals her innocence.
Tara’s dreams are
suddenly, and irreversibly shattered, turning her emotions and talents inward,
where she harbors a secret that has seemingly blemished her soul.She is left in darkness until a chance
meeting with an old friend opens the door to healing and love.Aidan O’Brien and Tara’s relationship is
borne of youthful exuberance and tempered in the foundry of tragedy.Together, they walk a difficult path, one
that heals through understanding and acceptance.
So the Heart Can Dance is a love story, written with deep meaning
for anyone who has endured life-altering misfortune that leaves behind unseen,
yet very real scars. Read it as a celebration of the soul’s ability to overcome
the worst of life’s challenges.It will
lift, inspire and breathe hope into the most painful experiences, and teach us
all...we can surely dance again.
