I just renamed my blog. No longer "From the Depths of my Mind", it's now called "The Beacon".
A beacon is something that beckons, calls, attracts. It's an invitation to come and investigate. Illuminating a dark sky, signaling a place of interest.
My first novel is called "Prairie Fire", the first of what I hope will be several books with a fire theme. "A beacon through time, igniting new passion, exposing old truths" is the unifying concept -- characters pulled into a quest for true love and greater understanding of themselves.
The heroine of "Prairie Fire", Natasha Stewart, is a reporter for a fictional Chicago-area daily newspaper, "The Beacon." She comes from a family with a history of paranormal happenings -- a line of descent tracing to acolytes of the Scots Celtic goddess/saint Bride (Brighid), who is associated with fire, healing and inspiration. The patron saint of Fleet Street in London, St. Bride has a long association with journalism. It seemed only appropriate that Natasha should work for a newspaper named "The Beacon".
And it seemed only appropriate that this website should be called "The Beacon", too.
