More About the Author

Clare Rosenfield was born in Cambridge, MA, and began writing poetry at the age of nine. She entered her poems to the Boston Herald's Good Sports Page and if accepted, won a dollar along with the printing of her poem! Because of her trans-religious, spiritual approach to life, sparked by living six years in Thailand, her poetry often inspires readers to dive deep and access the "peace goddess who has been waiting since the Big Bang for just one instant of recognition!" An artist as well, she illustrates her own books with paintings of different media. Her favorite subject is portraits, ones which portray luminosity, goodness of heart, wisdom, and which inspire women to value their inner knowing. Her poetry has appeared in a number of poetry journals.

Clare has also pioneered a holistic psychotherapy called Contact Healing which incorporates the healing arts she has studied over thirty years. She likes to empower people with tools for their own self-healing. See www.contacthealing.com Since the founding of the Global Healing Foundation in 2002, a non-profit focused on healing ourselves and the planet, she has been its co-director and at present, is its president.

Format: Paperback
This story is vivid and visual, not only because of the fifteen full color paintings but also because of the drama in the story. There are scenes from the seaside where Ninsun grew up as a young girl, from the desert she has to cross all alone on the way to fulfilling her dream, and from the moumtains where she is to study the healing arts with the elders. There is a feeling here of ancient Babylonia, of the customs, positive and negative, which Ninsun has to choose to accept or reject. Her decisions are relevant guideposts for women today, though she lived in ancient times. Her son, the formerly arrogant king Gilgamesh, inheritor of his father's self-centered ways, has an opportunity to become transformed and self-aware and humbled by sitting with his mother and requesting her to tell him her story, how she became so wise. I would recommend that everyone with curiosity about the original Gilgamesh story look into how it continues in this one.
