Reviews

"There are not enough words to describe the joy, passion, and excitement your story brings to my life. Being Sixteen, there isn’t much in the world that can fill a girl’s longing for love and romance; your story is an exception."

"Swan, darling, you are truly a gifted writer. Seriously, please add my name to that growing list of hardback book orders of your published story, with your autograph as well. I check back often for updates, and would love to read of Erik and Christine living that happily ever after dream."

"I’ve read hundreds of romantic novels from many other exceptional authors too- but I can say without hesitation that your work is as deeply moving, profoundly perceptive, professionally executed, and invested with such honesty and genuine, heartfelt sympathy and warmth, as any of the ‘best’ bestselling novels I have read."

Celebrating Release of ‘The Angel’s Song’ CD

Greetings fans and friends,
Before my husband’s dementia–our home was never happier than when creative projects were in the air. That is why my heart was broken yesterday, when, as my son Nathan and I were discussing and working on “The Angel’s Song” our first CD of original music under the IMMORTAL ARIA band name; my husband became very agitated and dropped his head back against the chair as careworn tears streaked his face.
The tears were because he can no longer truly participate as he once would have. Mine and Nathan’s discussions, our excitement and energy did not inspire him. Quite the opposite. He found our planning and plotting to be overwhelming and he felt left out. I turned my head so that neither he or Nathan would see my own tears.
Though my husband is present in body, in times like this it feels like the wonderful man who has always supported and encouraged Nathan and me in our creative interests, is missing. I strive to keep him informed, ask his opinions, assure him that he is part of all that we do, but he perceives moments like these as another of life’s pressures that he cannot contend with.
Nevertheless, when this CD is released, please know that my husband is directly responsible for any success Nathan and I might achieve. Bill made the decision back in 2006 to purchase everything Nathan needed to create his own music production studio, investing 20,000.00 of his own inheritance from his mother’s estate, so that Nathan would have the best equipment and software available at that time.
There were so many other projects Bill might have used that money for, but he believed with all his heart that music was IN Nathan Allen Pinard, and that music was Nathan’s best chance for a good life.
My husband tells the story of how one evening (would have been 24 years ago) when our church group was meeting in the fellowship hall, Bill wandered into the empty sanctuary to discover Nathan (13 at the time) sitting at the grand piano with his fingers stretched across the keyboard. Bill said he wasn’t actually playing, just sitting, contemplating. Bill recounts that Nathan then slowly began to improvise a song. Nathan never knew his dad was there listening. Bill quietly slipped out, came back to the fellowship hall where I was, and told me what he had seen, and that he believed Nathan had a special gift. Prior to that evening, Nathan played the clarinet in the school band, but had never expressed an interest in composing.
A week or so later, Bill took Nathan to a music store and bought him his very first keyboard. And the rest, as they say, is history!
