Art Imitates Life, Then Life Imitates Art: My Water Signs Happy Ending

Art Imitates Life, Then Life Imitates Art: My Water Signs Happy Ending

Ten years ago, I started writing my first novel Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal, after a visit with a psychic unleashed suppressed memories of my first and only love. To catch up on the back story behind the book, click on the Water Signs category of the blog.

In what I can only describe as the most magical moment of my life, two weeks ago I reconnected with the real life “Ken” in person. When I saw his smiling face at the door, my nervousness and apprehension melted way, replaced by a single, comforting thought: “I’m home.” Even though I’d always known in my heart and soul we were meant to be together, the human part of me felt a twinge of doubt as I waited for him to arrive; after all, we hadn’t seen each other in over 20 years.

But God’s timing is always perfect.

The second I laid eyes on him, I realized the happy ending I’d written a decade ago was unfolding according to a divine plan. He and I share an undeniable soul connection that sustained us through two decades of physical separation and has only grown stronger over time. Now that the reunion I fictionalized in the pages of Water Signs has materialized in the physical world, it is even more beautiful than anything I’d written back in 2008. My heart is bursting with love, joy, and gratitude…and at the same time, I’m filled with a peacefulness I’ve never experienced before. This man is my twin flame, my soul mate, my bashert. Every morning, I wake up and thank God he has returned to me, though sometimes I still have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming.

As a longtime student of spiritual laws, including the Law of Attraction, and a member of Tasha Chen’s Science of Getting Rich Academy community, I realize now that by writing my love story and happy ending, I brought it into manifestation, with the help of God Almighty. I also know that my experience is a testament to trusting the process and His ingenious ways and sure methods…even when appearances are bleak and people who love you tell you to move on for your own sake. No matter how many times I temporarily lost hope or felt sad or missed him with an indescribable intensity, I always believed we’d find our way back to each other. And thanks to Tasha, I learned how to stay alert to “evidence,” or signs along the way.

In the next few months, I plan to release and launch a third edition of the book (once I’ve fulfilled some client obligations and projects) with an updated introduction, where I’ll include photos of the couple who inspired the characters of Ken and Madeline. For now, I’m living fully in the present moment, enjoying every second of time he and I have to spend together.

To the Captain of My Heart, I’ll love you forever and I continually thank my God for you.

Book Review of Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal

I’m grateful for this book review of Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal from a new reader, to whom I gifted a paperback copy:

I finished Water Signs last week. What a story; what a life! As I read, I loved feeling all wrapped up in it as if it was my memory too. You my dear are a great writer! Loved the happy ending that tells of true unconditional infinite LOVE of family and friends and life!

Really inspired me to thinking, for all the rest of us living just day by day or thought by thought, what would our story look like if we took time to put together the thoughts that turn into sentences that turn into days, months, years of occurrences – our life’s story. Wow!!!

LOVED LOVED LOVED Water Signs. Waiting for the movie!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Judith, for this amazing feedback ~ even after all these years, when I receive a glowing review like this, it’s an exhilarating feeling. And yes, like most authors, I have fantasized about the movie possibilities. For now, I’m happy to bask in the glow of another 5-star book review.

In Sam’s Shoes: A Novel by Brooke Horton, Now on Amazon

I’m excited to announce that this contemporary romance is now available on Amazon.com:

Small-town Plain Jane Samantha Townsend thought she’d achieved it all by her early 20s. Madly in love and married to a handsome Air Force bad boy with a thriving career and a gorgeous new home, her idyllic life couldn’t possibly get any better – until an unforeseen event rips her entire world apart. Summoning newfound strength and resilience, she embarks upon a personal odyssey in which love comes with complications, appearances often hide reality, and tragic events forge unlikely alliances. Fortified by faith and an unrelenting passion for truth, can she find the courage to stand up to a powerful North Carolina family? Or will her dangerous quest for answers lead to another devastating outcome?

As the ghostwriter, I spent hours interviewing my client to understand the facts of her real story, then figuring out the best way to distill them into a fictional book. In a true collaboration, we made decisions together about characters, character names, plot, location, and outcome. Transforming someone’s life into a fictional story can be tricky, and in this case, we even eliminated a few real-life players for dramatic purposes.

In the end, it’s a compelling tale of Samantha Townsend, a responsible, small-town girl who loves deeply and learns how to navigate through life’s unexpected twists and turns, relying on newfound faith and inner resilience. It was a fun project to work on and I look forward to seeing plenty of book reviews on Amazon.

For those who prefer Kindle, it will be available in that format in a few weeks. Click here to purchase it in paperback.

Congrats and much success to Brooke Horton!
