Emalyn’s Treasure is the story of an independent, cherished young woman’s strong, personal secret. Emalyn’s secret is a special treasure hidden deeply in her favorite possession. The treasure’s story spins from actual experiences from my own childhood which I have given to Emalyn.
In times of terrible events – storms, earthquakes, or fire – surviving children tell of being rescued or protected by ‘butterfly people’. I don’t recall using the term ‘butterfly people’, even though I have had experiences with angelic beings who offered rescue or protection to me. A simple record of these events wouldn’t be wrong for me to write about, but the narrative could be rather boring!
Naturally, I don’t want to bore my readers! I was excited and intrigued when I was led to an obscure but significant time in modern Irish history
Boring Falls in the Presence of Drama Around the Treasure
Modern Irish history can be as colorful and voliatile as the ‘good old days’. Attempts to modernize Irish society were met with resistance. We all know personally how change can be scary and threatening. When people are faced with progress that they resent due to fear and ignorance they can act with violence. Progress can appear to be threatening economic comfort zones. People who own the ‘endangered’ business interests can help provoke the ignorant and fearsome into dangerous actions. Drama in the Irish community revolving around progress may not have launched such a big surge in the general motion of the planet, but it was high drama for Ireland. Intrigue and local terrorism, which could help an angelic event in my life bloom into a treasure novel. A novel I plan to have bring a richer reading experience to you — all faithful and encouraging readers.
In addition to the history, Emalyn has romantic, chocolate, and family drama to add richness to the story of Emalyn”s Treasure!
As the story comes racing from the tips of my fingers on the keyboard, an impressive amount of research forms seed foundation of that tale. Bits and pieces must fit the era when the story stands in a distant time in history. I pore over many events and pages of information searching for the event that will fit the first layer of the foundation. Foundation’s first layer is that beautiful story IDEA! Creativity, imagination, research and life experiences team in my author mind to bring a story to fullness. Finally, Emalyn’s Treasure has the foundation layers that make me proud of the published novel, all ready for you to read.
