Since Spring, author John W. Howell and I have worked together on a thriller which bridges the celestial and earthly lives of the two principal characters. John and I have never met, but we found common ground through the Rave Review Book Club and cyberspace.
Over the last several months, our writing has been interrupted by medical emergencies, family tragedies, and Hurricane Harvey (John lives on the coast of Texas). Even so, we have finished our book in record time and now are editing it for the Beta Readers.
One of the themes of The Contract is gratitude, hard-earned through courage. When I saw the BBC clip below, I could only bow with respect. Elements of this woman’s courage echo throughout our co-authored book. We may not choose the obstacles before us, but we surely choose our response and therein lies the possibility of greatness.
Happy Thanksgiving, may it surprise you with a multitude of blessings!
