My desire as a freelance writer was to become an author of novels and to write short stories and articles for various web sites. I’m also one of those people who are gifted with a million ideas and never did anything with them until now. I am starting my own business called Idea Girl Consulting. I will share ideas about home, work, business and marketing. I like to think in a futuristic sense in some cases I’ve thought of things that haven’t been developed yet but I have a vivid imagination and I like to use it. My stories will amuse you and entertain you for I can guarantee I have the gift of communication. I was born a Gemini so it’s in the stars for me to be a writer. This year I’ve also been working on Photographing various events and sites of interest.
This past summer I had a goal to explore most of the Bruce Trails found in the Niagara Peninsula. It was fun to go hiking almost everyday weather permitting. I wish I had my digital camera from the very beginning but I did catch some of the trips we took once I bought one. It was fun exploring the Blue Ghost Tunnel and I’ve got pictures of what people say are energies and orbs from the other side. I will be writing about the various things that interest me in a hobby kind of way. I’m also looking to developing the skills to become a great writer!
I even took the time to read all of J.K Rowlings Harry Potter books this summer. I love her imagination it’s fun and amazing. I’ve since been concentrating on the stories and novels written by best selling authors. I’m studying each book to see what type of material is considered popular these days.
The Story and characters are completely fictional in “The Mansion on the Hill.” The names I chose were from a French Baby Name Book and I developed my characters as I saw them in my mind. These are not real people but it may seem real if you use your imagination, as I have.
You can Google some of the names for fun and they actually exist. So do the Places I picked. Please note that I wrote this story as pure fiction. I wasn’t’ aware until afterwards, that such a place really did exist!
I’m wondering if I’ve written from a past life experience or something? It was a fun experience nonetheless and it gave me the hope of becoming a great author.
I’ve tried to be as imaginative as JK Rowling. I’ve used historical facts, as Barbara Cartland did in her books and I’ve been as adventurous as Johanna Lindsay. I used to read all the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books so that’s where I got the Mystery ideas. I compare my works to theirs for they wrote stories about people and it touched our hearts and souls.
When I went to Shaw Festival in the summer of 2008, I had the pleasure of seeing “An Inspector Calls.” I was delighted to find out it had been written in the early 1900’s and that it referred to the theory of “Six Degrees of Separation.”
“The Mansion on the Hill”, also celebrates this theory as well. For as you read about several families and how they are all connected to one another through several generations, you will see a pattern. Everything we say and do to another causes the “domino” effect.
When the thought of “Karma” comes to mind, we assume the biblical passage of “What a Man sows, he reaps.”
You will get a chance to watch how the lives of these Fictional Characters change when you put them into different environments. You will see dramatic changes in their personality. In some cases the Character learns from the lesson in life, while others perish for they did not follow any “God” given instincts.
It’s a story about Good vs. Evil and how people have secrets and how those secrets can destroy their lives within a moment of being revealed.
The mystery and romance will tug at our emotions and make you think that you are there in the story as a bystander. One who listens and watches with interest but cannot speak. Hopefully you will learn something as you watch the characters evolve and learn truths about themselves and others surrounding them.
