...if success is like dancing in the rain, then surely there is no comparison to seeing one's peer, a friend born of the same passion, achieving victory.
As a boy, living with his mother in an apartment in Detroit, Roland Yeomans found himself buried under a harsh winter storm, no power or heat for days.
As the temperature plummeted, hope dwindled. But Roland survived. And with him, a story was born...whispered from the lips of his mother.
Roland's mother is half Lakota Sioux, a storyteller in her own right. Unable to watch her son suffering from the cold on that bitter night, she hugged him close, whispering into his ear the story of, "The Bear With Two Shadows."
The tale intrigued him. Brought warmth to a land of ice and wind. A story he never forgot. A story that inspired him to one day pen his own tales of faraway lands, of heroes swirling in atrocity, facing unfathomable odds...and finding a way.
As did Roland.
Her story...his story, can now be shared. "The Bear With Two Shadows" is now available on Amazon's Kindle. Roland's first publication. It won't be his last.
"...My mother taught me to love winter. It is a season when you feel the bones of the landscape-the loneliness, the solitude of it. Something waits beneath winter..." R.Y.
"The Bear With Two Shadows" is a Celtic children's fable. One can link over by clicking on either Roland's name, or from my shortcut to his blog.
