When I discovered our theme for the month on Worlds of the Imaginations was magic powers I just had to get onboard.
I began writing because I desperately craved having a magic power. And that theme has come out time and again in my novels. It’s allowed me to build worlds in ways that have satisfied my need to feel this power albeit through my characters.
What is this power you ask? The power I most want is the power to heal another person. Not cutting into them like a surgeon or the dispensing of drugs, but laying on of hands to send the “powers of light” coursing into them and have them heal from the inside out. As if the condition had never existed in the first place.
The first time I used this power of healing was in the novel, Forever Man, when my heroine healed her man to save the day. The second was in Blood Moon Justice where the heroine’s powers had been expanded to include not only healing, but telepathy and telekinesis. That gal was so good she worked in a bar and could stop a drink from hitting the floor and saving the cleanup! I so enjoy strong heroines. They need kick-ass attitude and have abilities I don’t have to make the journey with them satisfying for me. And in my imagination, that’s just so easy and so much fun to do.
I look forward, with pleasure, to reading about other author’s super power choices.
