It’s been an exciting spring, completing the last of my three-book series OASIS CIRCLE. The Oasis Circle neighbors have stuck with each other through some pretty prickly situations. When I began writing Book #1, Tumbleweeds, I could not have imagined the adventures these ladies were to experience.

Separated by just a few feet between their modest bungalows, they are isolated from each other by the demands of their unfulfiling lives, until free-spirited Stella Woods is swept into their midst by a monsoon, literally. The ladies couldn’t just retire, play bridge and pump out cakes for the bake sale, no way. They pursue their destinies across the Sonoran Desert, in Rome, on the Ligurian seacoast, in the Umbrian wine country, and on a hardscrabble farm in Alabama.

In Book #2, Blue Palo Verde, it became clear they would not let anyone get in the way of their quests for love and acceptance, or tromp on their dreams. In Book #3, Flower of the Woman, the ladies show us that you are never too old to love, to forgive or to live your passion.

I am honored that these spirited women allowed me to make their journeys with them. It’s been so enjoyable, they are trying to convince me that there is more to be accomplished and maybe I should think about Book #4? We’ll see.

Warm regards,

Char Bishop

      Thank you, Liz. I hope not too long! It’s a three-book series, a lot happens in each book, and I think anyone who wants to get into the lives of older (divine) women will enjoy taking the time to do so. They are inspiring! They are real in the sense that I drew characteristics from a number of my friends to apply to each of them. I am so blessed!

Dusted off Dreams and Reawakened Hearts

By the time one reaches the autumn of one’s life it’s easy to give up on a long-cherished dream. Life has a way of sidetracking us.  So often if we do manage to take a step toward what we long for, other matters take up our time, energy, money– one at a time, until they …

A full day of writing without a Keyboard

Some days while other, more regimented writers are pounding away at their keyboards, I don’t write. On a computer. All writing is not created equal. All writing is not done on a keyboard. While my more structured and dedicated writer friends are pounding away in the early morning hours, I lie in bed and stare …
