Consequently, in the past almost thirteen years since retirement, I've written twenty-one books; some novels, novellas, short story anthologies; poetry; and personal growth books.
But now, I'm proud to say, I have learned how to self-publish, and I do so exclusively on Amazon. I love self-publishing. I truly enjoy being an independent author. I adore writing, but I've also learned to really appreciate the world that opens to me while editing, formatting, and uploading manuscripts, while praying that readers will like what I've written. And that they will want to buy another book that bears my name.
My reading tastes are eclectic. No surprise to me that my writing tastes are also eclectic. No two books are alike, however there is a common thread running through each of them; a thread that I'm sure most of my readers will identify. And that is the frailty of humanity; the fears, the joys, the ups and the downs, experienced by the characters who tell their stories.
Mostly, I write stories that, in one way or another, are social issue related; not surprising since my background is that of a psychospiritual practitioner. When I write, my focus is primarily on the wonderful characters who, after the first few pages, take me by the hand and say, "No, Audrey, we want to go this way. Are you coming?" And I accept their invitations and do my best to keep up with the characters as they tell their stories in their own way.
However, below, I will post a photo of the four major locations in which the story unfolds. The locations are Elliot Lake, Ontario; Bangalore, India; Toronto, Ontario; and Devanahalli, India.
