Today the talented Heather Greenis is back on my blog with some news about her upcoming releases. (You may remember Heather’s first visit in June.)
In fact Heather would have been back last week, but had to postpone because her team had reached the next level of a major curling championship. How exciting is that! Congrats on your team’s achievements, Heather. Lovely to have you back!
My how time flies. March 2012 I submitted a manuscript for Natasha’s Dream to three publishers and crossed my fingers. Eight months later, the amazing email arrived from MuseitUp Publishing. They offered me my first contract and I cried.
I submitted the second book, Natasha’s Diary in March 2013, the third, Natasha’s Hope May 2013 and submitted the final manuscript, Natasha’s Legacy in June 2013.
I am one week away from the launch date for the third book. I have one book to go. What an incredible ride.
I find it interesting to read how others began writing at an early age. In school, I hated multiple choice and true and false questions but love writing essays. I aced them, every time. It didn’t click that I could or should write.
My husband saw the potential and suggested it. I knew I fell in love with him for a reason. Writing has become more than a hobby, it is a passion.
The concept for the Natasha Saga began with a dream and my imagination had fun with it. I’ve always been a fan of a good drama with a touch of mystery. Something that makes a person think. When I need a breather, I enjoy something light that makes me chuckle.
I have a rather active imagination and with that comes some rather strange dreams. Fortunately, over the years I have learned to manipulate them. As a bonus, I remember them in extensive detail the following morning. A dream inspired the basic storyline. Then my overactive imagination developed the characters and the detail.
In my spare time I assist the Healing Cycle, Hospice Palliative Care. I am also actively involved with the local curling club, currently volunteering my time teaching children when I’m not curling. I’m proud to say I was on a team that won our zones, went to regionals and was two wins away from going to the provincials in curling.
I have a passion for travel, photography and gardening.
We have a lot of non domestic critters hanging around our property that include squirrels, chipmunks, birds, deer, wild turkeys and rabbits. We have one domestic critter. Our dog thinks she’s the boss. Give her treats, walks, playtime and snuggles and she’s a happy camper.
My books are available through my publisher, Museitup Publishing and all major on-line distributors of ebooks
Natasha’s dream is to escape a horrid future. The reserved young woman unexpectedly rebels in search of something very different. But there are consequences.
Growing up, her only friends were her brothers and Nanny. In her parent’s mind, she was a mistake. As a result of an innocent swim, she discovered life existed beyond the walls of her home. Families, peers, underprivileged children. Can a dream turn into reality? Anything is possible, but dreams come with consequences that not only affect her, but those she loves. What is Natasha willing to risk to persevere?
More than a collection of inner thoughts, the diary becomes a blueprint for future generations. Will history repeat itself?
Keeghan’s subconscious has played tricks on her in the past, but she’s normally able to control the outcome of her dreams. No such luck with this story. The mystery magnifies when her husband William discovers something else by the eroding sea wall, something that peaks their curiosity even further. Now, Keeghan wants the saga to continue. Drawn into the story more than she was prepared for, she needs answers.
Hope is growing up quickly. She’s intelligent, independent, and stubborn. Negative traits inherited from both her parents surface at inconvenient times. Will her beauty help or hinder her?
A tragedy. Stewart is forced to make a decision that will affect his life and the rest of his family. Then, an encounter that changes everything. Is he ready for this? Has Stewart’s past really been left behind? Will history repeat itself? Trust, integrity, and tradition all come into question.
Tragedies reshape Stewart’s plans and Hope’s dreams. Is the future of the orphanage at risk?
Natasha’s Hope – Having read the diary, Hope desperately wants the world to evolve according to her dreams. Through Adam, Hope finds an inner strength she never knew existed. Life-threatening events test her inner resolve and purpose in life.
Coming soon – Natasha’s Legacy – the conclusion to the saga – launching June 2014
