I always love talking to you always love talking to you every minute that I have an opportunity to do such a thing to know there people in your life always have fun with something absolutely and it's everything is absolutely will they used to be able to live a happy and healthy life ways to be able to explore the passion the desire ways to unleash
and have the kind of life that you meant to live and I was looking through their website and so much of it is about sex and so what do you think it is about sex that we say do you have to be a certain age to say I'm a type rhyme is it really when your 21 that you're the type who could you hear all these comments are fallacies are things and I mean for me I feel like I wore my body now that I've ever been before and can you give us a visor. On that as we get older is because there is an acceptance and a sort of love
you know I I this is and this is the body that I get to experience to deal with and I want to be in my body I mean it's so so powerful as able to do that most women can't do it you know where's worries and concerns that take us away from there and when the more you can be in your body the more you can accept its beauty what is been through what is taking you through the more you can celebrate it and enjoy it in all of its ways from caring for the way you eat sleep and take those long hot bath and yes around pleasure in sex of course that is a way that we ourselves it is a way we take care of ourselves
the way that we like a model or picture on the internet and to be able to stop and say I love how I look but I love how I feel what I love how I respond and answer is yes and it's helped me to start ignoring and turning that off so I don't take it in and I don't absorb it into my body and use it as a negative way against my body
this is this is the way that my body looks today it is very healthy as a matter of fact I am very very fortunate I need to celebrate that and everybody does all the things that you love all the things that were called the things that's taking you through each kid can just get better if there's no reason to anybody says they don't they're trying to sell you something that you know that you've invited you because that's where the powers I love that energy I find it when people are not sexually active or not intimate or not into relationships even with her family with her friends with their colleagues when they're there when they're separated if there is a drop in the energetic field there is happiness
sadness there's almost like a four-line And yet when you see someone who's in love
you know it just like they're like jumping off the side like you've never been through that energy that you don't get from
you know if you could get it from something else they would have
you talked about the things that get in our way the same you know but releasing that and I think that when were in love for whatever reason we choose in that moment to in those moments to be more vulnerable to all the emotions that exists out there I heard something Renee Brown who said that you know every intense emotion
is sharp edges you know even joy to make somebody feel vulnerable when you're in love with her it's with yourself your life your children your partner you're willing to live at that thorny as you're willing to be open to all the experience you're not numbing something out you're not holding anything back there's something
there's something about love that just lets us be
we are really and I think that's really sad is that when the love goes away we think we have to give up about the world and you don't you know we think that the love was an accident or it was just a trick that once it's gone or you know that the truth is we are unattractive unlovable need to be alone and I was there to tap into I think if they were to happen to all the time
no I think it's something I work with I try to do in my life I try to look at in my relationships and I don't want to do it when I write it because if it's between the two of them and not something deeper for the individuals Christine and I think love is sustainable I really do and I love every one of my questions is Heroes
so is there a transfer gyro
is there a age range for a o
mother doesn't have to be there tends to be and I'll tell you this is one of the nice things about publishing now if you're trying to publish traditionally which means going through New York Publishers or some of the bigger ones that are just outside Source books and things like that and you're going to be singing Heroes who are in their late twenties to early thirties and you are just a little younger than that and I hate to say it but sadly part of the reason for that is not the readers but the fire department has to be a young field things that are in if you have an older hero absolutely not independent and self-publishing both of which have gotten a great deal of respect and traction
can you can you can have your hair ruin your hair and you want them to be to do a little marketing work and we'll have a regional block the people who you know it what people tend to think of is going to be that late 20s early 30s there is a Trope of older woman younger man and when that happens
as I because I think about a change spot Queens
you know I don't see a reason for my actually think it would be a wonderful thing for women to be reading about sexual relationships of people in their 50s and 60s because the signs of light on the same. We wish were true Weebly couch them infection which is supposedly not true but it opens our eyes to what we want and so if we start writing and if you know an author's move to and feels connected to writing Heroes and heroines who are older I honestly think that is going to create that awareness and the possibilities never stop
what is a 19 year old or 21 year old men would not have done the proposal as beautifully as her fiance so there's no reason to think that
why why and why should it be it doesn't there's no reason to believe
this is so brilliant and I want to go back in time a little bit because there are new people that are watching us right now that are becoming tight for years through all of this program and I just love the way that you can act to love but for those that are new
I want to go back to your girlfriend and when you were six and seven and eight was there always this thing in you that believes in love this starry-eyed romantic in you
play my first grade class who would bring me flowers from his mom's garden and I definitely grew up with a lot of love around me refresh my parents were high school sweethearts. They just celebrated the 61st anniversary of their first date so yeah
I don't know I think General I was pretty hopeful child obviously I got hitched with those cantankerous teenagers that we all seem to try and started taking in the belief system that was external to me as opposed to the one I knew I was amazing and exciting and strange and wonderful and never doubt it so I think I've always been one for the fairy tales and happy endings so I think there's is probably always been a place for romance in my life in some way shape or form when you write
do you feel Brave to feel courageous to talk about love in to talk about sex and to take even classic fairy tales and tape it to the edge of your own twists and is
another say that it's it's heated and what am I supposed to put on this is a place especially I recently had some of that and this one has heard I'll just wait feedback on don't put things out there but there are times when I thought you know you can rub his novels are never going to make headlines in publishing industry you know headlines are always if it bleeds it leads you know if it's negative if it's frightening
and there's a part of me that sometimes thinks well this is just silly I'm just writing these little romances and then I stop and think no actually the opposite is true that if all this negativity is what's going out there and that's not what I believe in and not what I wanted well on and not what I want to surround myself with then I'm putting out there something that you know it's in the pond of of Hope and possibility and you know personal understanding and growth and finding the relationship in which you can be your best most authentic self
you know in the midst of all of the craziness 2 to be willing to take a stand and so you know what romance is important fiction is important things doing the things we love
I'm not hiding all the reasons they could give us.
Is important is worthwhile and yes and right for you I have two sons in my older son attention his junior year high school and
we homeschool and he has set for a while that college is not what he wants right now
and needless to say most of my family is horrified by this concept you're supposed to go to college
I've got your senses and I tried to explain and I tried to play true and so I stopped trying to defend I stopped trying to explain and I actually told him in the face of other people's choice should be I thought that was brilliantly grave and I found myself feeling very inspired by him because of that that's you know when you choose what's right for you no matter how much noises around you
you're such a good mom
I know we don't have a lot of time today would love to talk about your current books and some of what you're doing because I because I don't care if I never get the front I don't care for always relegated to you know the lifestyle section at the most important thing that I've been working on with a friend we noticed there was asking for more love scenes and in my genre they were asking for
we left so we did two different ends ologies on the second one just came out of school and set them in the world of HP Lovecraft which is the Incredible Hulk powers of Cthulhu and it's the most bizarre world I have to say the oddest dreams I've never been my style but the people took lovecraft's incredible vision of horror and apocalypse and they merged with the sweet and so much
get excited about it and reach home because it would be a lot different than ours inspires you crazed but we want I know you I really wanted to be there if you want to be true to them absolutely unique original Chris clear to give insightful and something that feels like a significant
Foundation from a core from a stolen absolutely I recently and posted an article I don't know if you had an opportunity I'm and dropped it into the martial arts hall of fame thank you and I went and I took this incredible
River classes the first class with the story class of weapons class I need and when I looked in town because we had to look down to the helm I looked in my little red toes resume writing on the carpet and all of the other heat in the room where they realize it was the only woman in the class and then the next class in the next class the next class and I was the only one not certainly not in the more swords feels absolutely incredible but in this particular day was the only one that decided to take the classes to and I realized that for 12 years with and my stem class and when I took surfing I was with all these like 15 and I was the only girl in the class or that I race sailboats you know all my compass
certainly not Fields were women have not in these fields but when I was there I was the only one in my stomach last I was the only one of my Surface I was the only one at the end of the day when I went back to my hotel room to get ready for the evening I was so proud of me
for calling my heart
and just for doing what my body loves to do and shall enjoying things and stepping into things that make me happy and I was even if it was anybody else around I was proud of me and so is everybody can do that for themselves whatever it is that makes you proud of yourself
there's no there's no reason to think you can't start that now you can't Discover it now you know if
you asked me to go back to when I was six or seven
but other things have gotten in the way do you know there are sharing your story seeing her face lit up when she talked about this and her little bit of her strengths and differences that make you know when you know it
you can and you don't even notice as you said that you were you know you were just a member of the class it wasn't about you and it was about you where you wanted to be
I'm at your house a little bit and if you don't go to love to feel younger, you can go to the website and grandma and your work cited to share with everybody and I know you only have a couple minutes to wrap up on love pics passion leading living
life of their judge so I would ask you to give yourself a moment to listen to yourself and I'm not telling you to sit and meditate or do things that you know this will work for you cuz it might not whatever is your favorite way to have some quiet weather that's in a path weather that's reading weather that's in your car when you drive because I have nobody can reach me to pick up my phone
what do I really desire at first my guess is you're going to get some of the surface quickie answers sleeps I want to be on the stage or I want to learn how to be open to what answers
you can be okay to come back so we can answer is
listening to yourself
I think I'll listen to our hearts I remember that one of my favorite stories of all time is The Secret Garden
and I love there's a line in there where she says I need a place where I can be my heart be still and it will mind me remind me I need a place to go where I'm lost because they're all fine and I love the idea of your heart behind you and a place that you can go to hear your thoughts or to hear your score to find your secret passion and love and so what you're sharing is really that to say this place within yourself is well within yourself the cashier is really
once you start giving it the focus that it deserves and his kind of wanted and it's going to be with us because I'm

knowing that it's real but it exists that it can be attained and those kind of connections net fairy tales on his face every day dreams come true there's Magic
