FACT about my latest novella, Shadows & Dust: The lead heroine of the story, Havoc, portrays a real person in my life.
And yes, she also has pink hair. It displays the truly wild side of her personality.
Also fact, the title Shadows & Dust came to me while watching the movie Gladiator. It was a line by Proximo, during one of my favorite scenes in the movie.
“Marcus Aurelius is dead, Maximus. We mortals are but shadows and dust. Shadows and dust, Maximus!”
Another scene became meaningful when Proximo said,
“Ultimately, we’re all dead men. Sadly, we cannot choose how but, what we can decide is how we meet that end, in order that we are remembered, as men.”
Such deep words with heartfelt meaning. 🙂
