The visualization of a key moment in my second Sirens book.
The story point ...
A denizen of two worlds, Aerica looks out to the entrance of Turtle Bay. The horizon has vanished in the morning mist and two deeply divided worlds have melted together. Is it a premonition of things to come or just a trick of the light?
Writing has long been a integral part of Mark Heine's creative process. In the pursuit of his original artistic voice, Mark's writing has evolved to become the driving force behind his work and has led him to envision a world of his own creation. Sirens, the culmination of 35 years exploration, is inspired by the sea-nymphs, made famous in Homer's Odyssey. These underwater visions of mythological muse are rooted in the moments of an ongoing and developing fictional narrative. This complex narrative, involving human evolution and our natural environment, is the unifying conceptual thread that ties these surreal visions.
