24 May Who Are You Really?
The Progeny is out today! What a journey this has been. I started research for this book and its sequel almost two years ago and it has taken me places far beyond the borders of Croatia and Hungary, where I went in pursuit of the “Blood Countess,” Elizabeth Bathory.
Why? Because at its heart, The Progeny is about one simple question:
Who are you really?
Who are you when your roles–daughter, son, sister, brother, friend, neighbor, wife, husband, student, job and titles–and your relationships are stripped away? Who are you at your core? When we step out of the history and experiences that we think define us, that make up an identity we believe to be our true selves… who are you? Are we just the sum of those things… or something beyond them all?
The Progeny is also about genius in all its forms–some more obvious than others. Maybe you, like me, have OCD. Or have contended with something unseen by others, in secret, for years. Maybe you’ve struggled with it through your life to the point that it’s interfered in your daily existence. Whether it’s ADD, ADHD, addiction, depression, anxiety, bi-polor disorder, autism, a chronic illness… whatever it is… I believe it informs your particular genius. The thing that causes you to see the world in a way that others can’t. I wrote this book as a reminder that the way you see the world is a gift. You are amazing. You are Progeny. (Use your powers for good, people!)
This book is about and for you. It’s about us and who we are. Because we’re not so different, in the end.
I love you guys. This story is for you.
