This is the very first book I started writing, and I began it with the dual dream of creating a beautiful place that the reader could truly escape to as well a way of exploring just about every spiritual issue that was on my mind at the time. And with no other constraint than of writing purely for my own pleasure and spiritual growth, I had the absolute time of my life creating the story of Jemimah Parker and the people of Jacaranda Plains who become part of her new life.
Before I knew it I had a lever arch file stuffed full with handwritten notes, and several floppy disks full of drafted scenes – and I was still only halfway to the destined “happily ever after”. At this point, I despaired of ever pulling it together into a normal sized novel and put it aside and wrote “Pelican Point” instead.
I love the story and characters of Jacaranda Plains as deeply as ever, so I plan to put it up on TulipFiction chapter by chapter as I rewrite it and I hope and pray that you will enjoy the unfolding journey along with me.
At this point I can’t make any kind of prediction of how quickly new instalments will be added, but if you’d like me to email you to let you know whenever something new is added to TulipFiction please use the subscription box at the bottom of this page to join the mailing list.
This is probably a good point to make all the usual disclaimers that while I’ve drawn on various experiences of my own and some that others have related to me, all the actual situations, events and characters in this book are completely fictitious, and if they bear any resemblance to anyone living or dead it is completely unintentional and coincidental.
Jacaranda Plains is an entirely fictional little cotton town, conveniently “dropped” into the Namoi district of Northern New South Wales, the area where my husband was born and raised. Although for the sake of the story I may mention an approximate distance from other towns and landmarks which do exist – I actually have no fixed point on the map in mind, and have taken the liberty of rearranging the geography of the landscape to suit my own purposes.
Phew. Now that I have got all of that out of the way, I pray that you may find enjoyment and spiritual stimulation in reading "Jacaranda Plains."
