Storm, the most viscereal, inspiring book ever written is now available!
Oh, wait, you don't know about Storm yet? I've had a visit with the author, Joyce Anthony and here is our conversation.
Ron: What was your inspiration for having Storm show up at a lighthouse?
Joyce: I tried to think of the most isolated, out-of-the way place I could, one that was also fairly safe from weather and critters--and a lighthouse in the middle of an ocean was perfect :-)
Ron: Where did the picture (mental) come from for a whirling rainbow?
Joyce: One day the thought occurred to me that some days all the colors of the rainbow swirl together so tightly they create balck--therefore, even on the blackest of days, there is always a rainbow.
Ron: Is Storm, the title and main character, a play on temptuous?
Joyce: Other than the fact he appeared during a storm, I find storms powerful. They always bring about chnge, sometimes drastic and other times subtle--but always a change. Like a storm, my MC is powerful and brings about change to all he touches.
Ron: Maggie, in her role, designed as man's best friend for the obvious reason?
Joyce: Maggie actually showed up out of nowhere and made herself part of the story--I didn't create her. She had her own reasons for appearing.
Ron: How did Storm remain on the island 33 years and have nobody question it?
Joyce: Seafaring men are often "ask no questions, make no explanations" types. There was the orphanage Sam grew up in on the mainland and Sam had a reputation from his captain days of being kind and caring--it was most likely assumed he had adopted Storm for company and help.
