This is major rework of a website designed to present various creative writing and freelance photography items. It’s a living site that will undergo constant evolution as artistic endeavors ebb and flow. And, there’s always the learning curve associated with my learning how to use the site editing tool.
Speaking of a learning curve, I’ve just opened a Twitter account that I anticipate using in support of this site. You can access me on Twitter via LawrencePratt8 or @miroerarts.
Miroer (pronounced “mirror”) Arts is the umbrella under which I’ve been – quite sporadically – pursuing my creative writing and freelance photography for some years. Miroer is derived from the first two letters of the first names of my wife, our son, and our daughter.
As in the past, both written and image efforts will change and be reflected in this site. With my recent retirement, I look forward to expanding the level of both writing and photographic efforts.
That said, I’d like to introduce my “flagship” item, a novel titled “Dark Deception”, available in both hard copy through Amazon and in various e-formats. Please see the Creative Writing page for details on this and other written efforts, including links to currently available free short story reads.
For openers, here’s the “elevator pitch” for Dark Deception:
The text is an emotionally engaging and thought provoking work that centers around a closely-knit trio of women who come to depend on one another as they attempt to live meaningful lives in an authoritarian, faith-based community. The forces their families, friendship, and others in the community exert on the three don’t always work in harmony, and they face limited freedom addressing issues, large and small. The lives of the three and other various characters unfold in a tapestry of emotions and encounters as all attempt to deal with the demands of a community that tolerates no loyal opposition. The book’s characters – both within and outside the faith – meld and collide in a series of encounters that involve family, love, betrayal, and a quest for power and control.
My photo efforts can be viewed by going to Picture Perfect, a collection of links to a variety of artistic presentations and products. Everything is safe for viewing by all ages.
If you’re interested in viewing more images of a specific genre – floral, seascape, etc. – or submitting any questions or comments, please contact me at [email protected]. No attachments or links, please.
Lastly, I’m always appreciative of any word-of-mouth or social network advertising regarding the novel and my photography.
