Clay of Many Colors

Not to bury the lead, but I've written another book, Clay of Many Colors. I've been hard at work crafting stories for many months. 

This one certainly has been my most political as stories were written in reaction to current events as a way to work through the roots of the various -isms and toxicity that we're currently subjected to. Although, in terms of content, not all that different from what I normally write.

"Clay of Many Colors" includes various stories interweaving various Religious traditions with mundane moments. A demi goddess in search of reliable birth control. A gender fluid princess-knight with angel armor. A Dreamer goddess trying to find her place between two worlds. A priestess following Enheduanna, the first named writer, into exile. A woman involved in the strike of the 20,000. A Suffragette working at Hull House. Okay, look there's over sixty stories. It just kept going. Inspired by my immediate feeling after the 2016 election wanting to wrap my arms around the world and try to keep it safe.

I can't do that physically, but I can write it.

Here it is, Clay of Many Colors – over sixty stories like bottles of hope that I'm sending out into the Universe.
