A man who's always seen the world through an artistic lens, where boat railings are covered in vermilion paint under cotton candy clouds, would like nothing more than to get validation from the son who's always thought his father was crazy. What if he isn't crazy at all? What if faeries are real? What if pixies did steal his shoes? Sometimes fathers and sons have lenses that will never be focused the same.
Golden Meadows explores the notion of defining reality. Who establishes the rules, and when is it okay to live outside the parameters of normality? It is the third book in the Read Write Ponder series, a collection of short stories constructed to engage readers, writers, and educators. Each novelette-sized book is comprised of a single short story, writing prompts to encourage creative writing, discussion questions for thoughtful analysis of characters and theme, and a letter from the author about her inspiration for the story and the techniques she used to write it.
About the Author
An IT professional by day, Richelle's reading and writing time competes with the attention of her husband, four sons, and two dogs. When she can squeeze them in, she takes on-line classes, like James Patterson's MasterClass and FutureLearn's "Start Writing Fiction" course, to continue improving her craft. While she has published non-fiction technical articles in professional legal journals, the books in her Read Write Ponder series are her first published works. She hopes to take this series and develop a creative writing course for a Community Ed program as a way of giving back to her community.
