Book Recommendation Ardent Spirit by J. K. Royce

Julie Royce gave a copy of her book, Ardent Spirit, to a mutual friend. About a month later, I gave the same friend a copy of my book, Captivate Audiences to Create Loyal Fans. The friend is on staff where I teach my writing classes. She was happy Julie and I shared our books with her since she knows Julie is in my class and is curious about what we writers do in it on Mondays.

As the friend clutched the copy of my book, she said that although she doesn’t usually read historical fiction, she enjoyed Julie’s book so much she couldn’t put it down. She FELT like the protagonist, Magdelaine La Framboise.

I shared the friend’s comment with Julie when we met for lunch and I said, “Julie, the reader, feeling like the main character, is exactly what we aim to create in our writing!”  We celebrated the success with her book, which has been selling more copies than she expected would happen. Click here.

Amazon’s description is “Magdelaine Marcotte La Framboise was inducted into the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame in 1984. Two centuries after her birth, she was recognized for her achievements in business. She is a role model, an inspiration and a woman who earned a rightful place in history.

“Born Magdelaine Marcotte in 1780, she was the daughter of a French fur trader and granddaughter of powerful Odawa Chief Kewanoquat. Haunted first by the murders of her father and husband, and then the untimely deaths of her daughter and infant grandson, the illiterate widow defied the social customs and expectations of the era. With unflinching courage and an ardent spirit, she charted her own bold course through the male dominated Great Lakes fur trade.” Click here to order the book.

What Are You Reading?


I plan Sunday mornings for hours of reading. Then about noon, we go to the farmers’ market to shop organic and Starbucks to read some more.


Today, I balanced my time between When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi and Marilyn Steele’s The Wild Feminine.




A member of our reading  group chose When Breath Becomes Air which is an amazing book about a thirty-six year old neurosurgeon who was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer.   Click here.






Amazon states: “In The Wild Feminine, Jungian psychologist and artist Marilyn Steele, Ph.D. weaves personal and archetypal stories and dreams together for a soulful and inspiring call to action. Through poignant, humorous, and deeply felt presentations of her life, Marilyn strikes a chord with all of us in whom the Wild Feminine is ready to emerge. These stories are designed to awaken a feminine consciousness and bring wild feminine power and wisdom back to the world. In this book, we see how to open to mystery and learn to trust our inner wisdom.

Marilyn and I met at Starbucks on Saturday to talk about our progress in producing what we are learning about in an on-line class we take together. I told her before lights out at night, I like to read a chapter from The Wild Feminineclick here .

In skilled prose, Marilyn writes about the time she lived in the S.F. East Bay hills with redwood trees and hummingbirds, a stag, and other animals. The stories tell about her struggles, accomplishments, and what brings her peace. They are motivating, at times humorous, and filled with “transformative wisdom.”

In the chapter called, “Listening with the ear of your heart,” Marilyn tells about the stag outside who visits her cottage and the stag in her dream. “The stag moves easily between the living and the dream worlds, especially at Samhain, the Celtic New Year. This is the time of no-time, when the veils are thinnest.”

The stag, for her, is “a spiritual pathfinder, this gentle warrior who integrates masculine and feminine energies. Showing me that life’s mysteries, usually hidden, want to be seen and known. We seek a wild peace.”

I highly recommend both books, click on the direct links above if you are interested in them.
