Witch Please!!! DELILAH RECOVERED is Released!!!
The theme that was important for me to explore in this book was COURAGE.
Nelson Mandela once said: “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."
I wanted to explore that theme throughout the book. I believe that is why we love movies about superheroes. We love seeing them overcome their fears, challenges, and villains. I believe that if you spend time truly talking to someone and you hear their story, they have, on many occasions, overcome a fear to do something courageous. It might not be saving the world from annihilation, but it is courageous, nonetheless. It takes courage to go to school, to get married, to stay single, to go on a date, to have children, to help a neighbor, to start a new career, to go to the doctor, to overcome an illness – to be human.
Another theme that I wanted to explore was the feminine and witches confound us. They scare us because they are the maiden, the mother, and the crone. They have power that is deeply rooted in what we consider feminine traits, such as intuition, healing, and cooking up spells. For example, Merriam-Webster currently distinguishes four meanings of the noun witch; and two of them refer to the crone, "a mean or ugly old woman: hag crone," and to the maiden, "a charming or alluring girl or woman.”
I hope you enjoy reading Delilah Recovered as much as I enjoyed writing it. Please be sure to leave a review wherever you purchase a copy.
