“I never understand when people make a fuss over me as a writer. I’m just the garden hose that the water sprays through.” ~ Joyce Carol Oates
I believe Joyce’s words are true of every writer. Often, the pain you experience around writing is simply that your “garden hose” is plugged up by something akin to last year’s fall leaves, a bit of silt, and the remnants of your pup’s old tennis ball. My job as a Book Shaman is to help you clear out that gunk so that you may become a vessel for the Divine’s download.
I’ve been a voracious reader since my 4th grade teacher, Miss Campbell, opened James and the Giant Peach and began reading it to our class. At that moment I fell in love with the written word and starting penning short stories about witches with carbuncles. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I realized I had the gift of helping others to write their own books, as well.
