The Temple of the Subway Goddess: A Beltane Gift for You


My novel, The Temple of the Subway Goddess, was to be published next year.  The novel is about the quest to find our way to the essence that connects us to our deepest selves and others in our families, communities, and throughout time and space.  This journey is explored through the coming together of a modern urban woman and an ancient refugee priestess from a long-disappeared goddess temple.  As they meld their two worlds, they remake themselves and their loved ones and vision a new way of being.

However, life doesn’t always go according to plan and the publisher has ceased to exist.  Since my real goal for publishing it was simply to create something that people would enjoy and maybe even find a bit inspiring, I am now offering it as a free download.  You may also purchase it as a real life paper and ink book.  To either download or purchase it,  click Temple of the Subway Goddess.
