The title to the third book I wrote, ‘Into the Sun’, utilizes a scene like the one above for an important message within.
I’ve always been obsessed with the sea, from as young as I can remember, sitting on the beach, staring outward, wondering if I could walk straight across, where would I be?
This shot was taken at Nags Head, NC, USA, simultaneously while I was writing that book. It’s actually where I wrote most of it, sitting on the beach, staring at the ocean.
Subtle sounds of the waves slapping the shore, the distant sounds of seabirds, the smell of the sea…warm breeze in my face…kids playing off in the distance, collecting shells, building sandcastles…
I had this crazy misconception that I had to get an agent, do it that way or else it doesn’t count.
I guess I should have self published…it’s never too late for that!
