I do, I really do. Yes, it's me, Cheryl from the Zodiac Mysteries, and take it from me, anybody that says divorce is a bad thing, hasn’t had my experiences. Oh, I know what you’re going to say, it’s terrible, it’s painful, it’s a wrench and I guess at first it is, when the reality hits that your life is built on shaky ground. Translated that means you wake up one day and find out your husband of many years is a lying, cheating, sack of... well, he’s a toad of the worst order.
Even worse is when you realize that you have nothing of your own, your whole life is built around the very same toad and you’ve given up any ambitions you once had and now you have no way to even take care of yourself. Believe me that’s a dose of reality! When I look back now, that dose of reality, as painful as it was, saved my sanity and my soul. Who was that trusting woman who believed till death do us part?
I didn’t do it on my own, not really. It was Gale, the owner of The Mystic Eye, and Julia, my favorite astrologer, who took me under their collective wing and slapped me around, mentally that is. They are the best friends anyone could ever wish for. Gale hired me to run her occult bookshop, Julia gave me great advice and even saved my life in one terrible event. Because of them I found the strength to get through my divorce, dump Frank the Toad, buy my own condo and make a real home for myself in the most beautiful city in the world.
What more could a girl ask for? I am a gay divorcée, with a new lease on life, and happy as a clam. If you ever get to San Francisco, make sure you visit The Mystic Eye and say hello. I love to meet new people and make new friends. I’ll see you there!
You can read all about me in All Signs Point to Murder where I play a big role, thanks to my author, Connie di Marco. You can visit her at her website, at Facebook and Twitter @AskZodia and best of all, this month at Season’s Readings, she’s giving away a copy of one of her books in the Zodiac Mysteries or one of her Connie Archer books in the Soup Lover’s Mysteries. You can take your pick.
Hope you enjoy the adventures!
