In 2009, I heard a voice - I assume was my Higher Power (HP) - that told me to write a book about the healing power of art and recovery. I looked up and said "who are you kidding? I don't know how to write a book." The voice said you know about recovery and you know about the healing power of art - so yes you can!
I spent about 5 years documenting the artwork I used to help heal my traumas, story line, and character development. My artwork runs through the story, but I am not the artist. The artist is anonymous. I added this page so you can see the artwork behind the story. [I am working on adding a gallery]
The back story of my main character, Claire, is based on my husband's story.
Writing this novel was very therapeutic,.
I hope this story helps you to grow in your own recovery and learn about the healing power of art.
With love, blessings & gratitude - Robin
