    Hi Ellis, and thanks for visiting my blog and liking my review of A Portrait of Love and Honor. Also, thank you for writing for readers who, in the past, have somehow been left out of our literary efforts–middle school and YA.

    I’m glad you were there for her. I wish more in the field had an open mind to the range of human experience possible. The genre of visionary fiction is just starting to emerge as a force. You might want to check out the Visionary Fiction Alliance. Good luck with your writing. It’s certainly a hard genre to find a publisher for. I’ll take a look at your site. Thanks for commenting!

      Well, although I had fun writing it, I don’t see myself as a writer (yet?)….but I love reading those kinds of books – and am sometimes in search for books for my clients (teenagers/YA)….
      I haven’t been aware of the genre “Visionary Fiction” but just checked it out and will definitely use that as a searchterm in the future. Sounds just like what I’m looking for. THANKS so much

      Hhhmm. Visionary Fiction Alliance? Not that I was looking for a genre in this moment, but I didn’t know it existed. Your quote by Madeline L’Engle comes to mind in this context. Two and a half years ago I mentioned her book, “A Wrinkle in Time,” from the podium at “The Moth,” as I recounted a precognitive dream. When I did I heard cheers of approval and identification.

    The blogs are my only published pieces outside of the two books. I write a lot on spirituality and hope some of those topics resonate with you.

    There are lots of great hiking places out here. Colorado can be a wonderful place. Although it’s hard for a liberal New Yorker to get my mind around the conservative, gun loving, Bible belt tradition that runs deep in most of the state. Denver and Boulder suit me better than the Springs. The Springs also does not like supporting schools or libraries. Hard environment for a writer.

    Hello! I know you don’t often derange from book analysis but I nominated you for a three day quote challenge. It’s a small and simple challenge where you share a quote each day and nominate three other bloggers for the challenge. You can read the rules about it here: https://throughfantasyandreality.wordpress.com/2016/10/16/day-1-of-3-days-quote-challenge/
    Usually I’m not into this kind of things but it seemed great to me to share other bloggers as well as to be shared.
    I also understand if you wish to leave this alone.
    Have a nice day!
