It is 1984 and Liz waits to be paroled for the murder of former roommate, Ricky Martinez.

Is she guilty? Liz says yes. Her attorney, Toni Bordeaux, hotly disagrees and tells Liz she has paid her debt!

 
 
In 1967, partly to blame for her young son's death and abandoned by her husband, 
Liz leaves Scotland in disgrace, hoping for a second chance at love and life. 
 
She arrives in San Francisco during the Summer of Love to have a "jolly good time" with the free loving groovy people. She soon joins a commune. Her new family is a curious mix: Black Panthers Toni and her boyfriend, Bobby, trying to change the world, Sam, a Vietnam vet, seeking inner peace, a kindhearted, flamboyant hairdresser, Mason, ready for fame and love, a flower child named Cat, and her callous drug dealing boyfriend, Ricky, who loves his girlfriends then quickly tosses them aside.
At first, Liz is happy to have found a welcoming home, but as her new roommates pry into her mysterious past Liz's search for a "jolly good time" brings more grief and a worsening drug addiction. She becomes unwittingly embroiled in a plot to bring down the Black Panthers and sees saving her Panther Toni as a way to redeem herself for her part in her son's death. Sharing the plot to another roommate, she is told, "Keep your mouth shut." In a moment of passion, she seizes the chance to save her roommate. But can she save her friends or will she just watch her commune family break
apart? No one expects anything heroic from Liz, especially Ricky.

 THE COLD SIDEWALK chilled June and Mary’s bums as they sat on the curb waiting for the 33 Ashbury bus. The day had been pleasantly warm for late March, until the sun dipped behind the trees in Golden Gate Park and the ocean fog spread a chill through the Panhandle and up to Haight Street.Mary tucked the extra material from her bellbottom pants around her legs to keep the wind from shooting up them. June sat on her large black leather purse that held her schoolbooks. The short skirt of her Catholic school uniform (which, in the opinion of the nuns, was too short) did not protect her shivering white legs from the cold. No matter how nippy the days could become, the two never let the capricious San Francisco weather discourage their trips to the Haight. It was a fun time there. They met up with the young, hip people moving into the area who were bringing a whole new scene to the city. The mood of the Haight-Ashbury was rebellious with long haired young men playing harmonicas and writing poetry and tough Harley-Davidson motorcyclists cruising the street, some with Hell’s Angels emblazed across the back of their leather jackets. The scene was a much-needed relief from the girls’ restricted life. At home the sisters didn’t talk openly about their jaunts, knowing the problems it would produce.

TELL YOUR STORY - THE FUTURE WANTS IT.

                           BE A STORYTELLER. I LOVE TO TELL A STORY, DON'T YOU?
http://www.facerockproductions.com/story_tellinggrandma.php

Your life holds an interest to family now and in the future. I'm an author of three (soon four books) which consist of a how-to book, "The Timeless Counselor: The Best Guide to a Psychic Reading", and two novels. Each holds a piece of my own outlook and life history. In the times to come when I no longer walk this earth those future family will know some things about me. The how-to book tells of my psychic life and profession. The next how to book due out January, 2015 will tell more about that with added details of my spirit/ghost encounters.

In the future there might be a child born into my family who has psychic abilities like me and my words can guide her or him. My novel, "The Skye in June" is about a psychic child, a little girl, and the challenges she must face. It also includes history about Glasgow, Scotland and being an immigrant. San Francisco during the 1950's and early days of the changing environs in the '60's. Readers will learn about how society and the prejudices of people back then.

The Skye in June will soon be an audio book because of the many readers who have asked for that. They want to hear the Scottish burr, enjoy the slang of the '50's, learn about San Francisco's "The Castro" before it was known as that. Do you know the proper name of that district? The famous store in that area? It's all in the story. In this excerpt I talk about the Scottish family's first American holidy - Thanksgiving at http://youtu.be/jpsdgC__9kQ

My second novel, "City of Redemption" is also set in Glasgow, Scotland 1966 and then moves on to groovy San Francisco of 1967.  I wrote it first as a screenplay for a Scottish actress. It takes place during the tumultuous Summer of Love with Blank Panthers, sex, murder, and rock n' roll, of course! This too is a historical fiction and my future generation relatives will see how life was for me as a young woman growing up in San Francisco at that time.

What about you? What history of your life will you leave your future family? You can print a few copies or leave an ebook. It will become part of your legacy.

Take time to start your personal history book for telling your story has meaning.

tap, tap, I hear your keyboard working.....

ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE - KARMA LOVE


http://youtu.be/vAJRBIHkQFs
"It's all about love," Eydie's dying words to her daughter, Sally.

My friend Eydie passed away recently. She was 96, one and a half months shy of 97. Sally shared with me her mother's last words about how living is all about love.

My next radio show on Tuesday, December 2, 2014 9:15-10 a.m. PST on www.kows107-3.org 
is about karmic love. The Power of Love. How it evolves us as spiritual beings. How it heals past wounds. How it raises our consciousness to be a healing part for the world. RADIO STREAMS live via internet. I will give a karmic psychic reading to a mother and two daughters on the show.

Karmic love is for healing and growing spiritually, the spirit of who we are, and sharing that with another or others.


Below Excerpt from Love and Thanksgiving by H. Spencer Lewis, Rosicrucian Order.
Love is creative. It grows through expression. It cannot expend nor consume itself. Love begets love; it seeks its own power everywhere and enhances itself in its devotion.

Love is reactive. A love of the spiritual values--in human and universal contacts--brings the values of the spiritual to our understanding.

Love is the limitless power by which we can rule the destiny of our life, and it is the same power by which the Creator rules the destiny of the universe.

As we increase in love we increase the attunement with God, for love is the essence of God.



This show includes a FREE psychic reading by a very talented young woman, radio host, Yerevan. Email her a question for an on-line reading. First emails will be given a psychic reading. Contact her at readingsbyyerevan.

The Timeless Counselor and my novels, The Skye in June and City of Redemption receive overwhelming five star reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.com
