I’ve told you of my beloved’s heart attack. In reality it was two heart attacks, two open heart surgeries, in two days, yet she beat it. Lady K is now at home and on the mend. For some reason today she decided to hijack my blog to tell you about the rise of a writer she knows well. Here’s Lady K:
“Over twenty years ago, I watched as Prudence MacLeod gingerly navigated the keyboard of her first desktop personal computer. She was anxious to embrace the new technology to help her bring her stories to life.
Each day when I came home from work, her smiling face would be a signal that there were freshly written pages for me to peruse. I fell in love with those first characters and was anxious to read their full story. When I reached the end of her day’s work, I often found myself trying to scroll further. She always got a kick out of that and of watching my face as I read.
Over the years Pru has honed her skills as a writer. What has remained constant is her desire to tell stories about ordinary people who do extraordinary things. As a former powerlifting coach, Pru knows that most people underestimate what they are truly capable of and sometimes place barriers in their own way. She also knows that when you show people how to kick down those barriers, their world enlarges and how they see themselves is forever changed.
Pru also understands that when people can see themselves in a story, the experience of reading becomes empowering. This is why she chooses to write about characters who have been abused, who come from disadvantaged backgrounds, are LGBTQ2, are a person of color, etc. When you can see at least bits of yourself in the story, reading isn’t just about entertainment, but becomes an exercise in having your own notions of limitations and barriers challenged as the everyday heroine finds ways to realize her own dreams and potential, often through the most unusual of circumstances.
The genres, settings and characters may change from book to book, but the key messages always remain: you are enough, you are capable and you are worthy. Her goal is to tell stories that entertain but also leave you with something to help you along your own path.
So, for action packed stories featuring everyday heroes, check out Prudence MacLeod’s stories. You won’t be disappointed! Here’s the link: Amazon
Thank you for that glowing description, my love, and thank you for staying on this plane with me so I can continue to tell you my stories.
Until next time, folks.
