For me, the term divine feminine encapsulates the energy of love, joy, intuition and creativity inherent in each of us. It is the fire in the belly, that passion which drives each of us to express ourselves in our own unique, authentic way. Being able to express my divine feminine through writing, storytelling and dancing inspires me more than anything else.
In my erotic romance series, The Dance of Love, I not only drew on my three decades of experience as a dancer, choreographer and entertainer; I incorporated aspects of the divine feminine, which guided the heroine on her journey in each of these stories.
In Dancing Queen, it manifests as the Goddess within, encouraging Michele to listen and look for the messages as to which man she should choose. And although her inner Sex Goddess certainly leads Michele on a range of naughty, erotic adventures, she ultimately finds her happy-ever-after man.
In Tiny Dancer, Madame Lucette is a tarot card reader who encourages the heroine, Samantha, a young dancer at the Moulin Rouge, to listen to the messages of the cards. In fact, every card Samantha pulls in the story is the card I pulled at my desk when writing this book. Allowing Tiny Dancer to grow organically through this intuitive process was second nature to me and I loved the subtle shifts it made to the story.
So much so, I repeated this process in Dance to a Gypsy Beat. Conflicted by her growing affection for a young, dare-devil Australian lawyer, my fiery flamenco dancer, Carla turns to the runes for guidance. Whenever she needs help in matters of the heart, she throws the runes. Again, each of the runes thrown in Dance to a Gypsy Beat was the same as I threw in my office when writing the story. And I was as much surprised by them as Carla…
So, whenever I sit at my desk, the ever hopeful hand of fate, of the divine feminine guides me in my writing process. Like love and dancing, writing is best explored within before it can be successfully shared. Hopefully, as you read my books, you’ll agree.
