The visualization of a key moment in the first book in my Sirens series.
The story point ...
Tired by the day's adventure, Aerica and the others indulge themselves in a little late afternoon sunbathing on a warm beach. It's Aerica's 13th birthday. She is often over-indulged, being the youngest in the family. But on this day, that special extra indulgence is the trigger that sets her life on a very different path.
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.
