Another Story Published – Saltwater Sorrows

As many of you know, I’m a fiction writer as well as a non-fiction writer. I enjoy pushing the boundaries of my imagination and creating new characters and worlds. One of my new “people” is coming alive in the Saltwater Sorrows anthology.

My story, Seaweed and Gossip, had been crashing around in my head for twenty years after hearing a roommate in Sackville, N.B. talk about her summers. The roommate said that when she went home to Havre Boucher, an oceanside community near Antigonish, Nova Scotia, she headed to the shore with her mom and friends for some “seaweed and gossip.”

Saltwater Sorrows

Here’s a description of the book:

Deep, mysterious, beautiful . . . dangerous . . .

Women and the sea have been tied together in myth and story from the beginning of time. Tales of women being drawn to the sea or being left on the shore, waiting for their men’s return, have been passed down through the ages.

But what mysteries lie beneath the sparkling placid waters? What power drives the wind and waves crashing against the shore? There is transformation and exaltation—magic—in the ocean and women alike. And both know that while the sea gives, the sea also takes.

The book will be out Wednesday, Aug. 2.
