Author photo. In my heart I always cherish the spirit of the old European continent, which is where I was born and raised. I like to unlock every now and again the golden coffer of memories, letting out the cheerful notes of my old guitar. It fills the air with music just as it used to in the past among our group of university friends. I can see our home with its spacious garden all bathed in sunlight, where I used to daydream in wistful solitude for hours, conjuring up image after image, and jotting down rhyme after rhyme… I tenderly recall the prizes I have won throughout my sports career, as well as my mates from those times. Later on, my work at the scientific library and the Institute of Science allowed me to meet yet other strong-willed and kind-hearted people with whom I maintain a close connection to-date. After my husband and I immigrated to Canada along with our two sons, I preserved the living bridge of memories and I often cross over to the other side, with only a telling tear or two in the eyes. I am fortunate to have lived my life under the spell of friendship. I was blessed with some true friends here in Vancouver too where my family currently lives. It has been my Canadian friends that helped me ease the anguish of separation from home. Debby’s smiling face as we play golf or hike in the nearby mountains or gather with her family and friends makes me feel happy and serene. I get the same positive sensation from watching the ocean waves’ play, it is like a recharge. The wise embrace of Canadian wildlife injects me with vigorous shots of life, and when I hear the love-struck song of the nightingale at the break of day I feel that I’m growing wings to fly in artistic endeavor. Why did you choose the romantic genre? Because I only profess the faith of the eternal love of God. There is one universal truth that holds together human relationships, and carries in itself infinite healing power and all the beauty of life. I did my best to create my characters in line with this giant plot. Once you’ve been touched by true love, it opens up bright horizons for you and guides your way here on earth. But such enlightenment always goes through the pain and strife of all life lessons, that happen to us. It is a step-by-step process which usually passes through an initial phase of naïve uninformed innocence and continues right until reaching a revelation about the universal wisdom planted within every person’s life. This kind of transformation is shown in Annabel, the protagonist of the romance “The Return of the Boomerang”. Lisa Hamilton’s character evolves according to the same pattern in the amorous fantasy “Enlightenment” which will soon reach my audience. Thank you all for reading my novels! Betty Jay
