About the Author
L. J. Diaz
Laura is thirty-something and was born and raised in a ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ village in rural England, UK. She emigrated to the USA a little over two years ago, married the love of her life in her dream Las Vegas wedding, and now resides in Los Angeles, California with her husband, in a little shack by the beach.
Laura believes that animals have the best souls, and dreams of a day where extinction is extinct. She hates suffering of any kind and is a gentle soul. She is the oldest child she knows and still believes in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. She is yet to stroke a unicorn, talk with a mermaid, and hunt for vampires, but these things are on her bucket list. Laura has faith in the power of prayer, is convinced that tiny miracles happen countless times a day and believes in magic. She finds witchcraft intriguing and would like to bottle sunshine to cure gloomy days. She is a compulsive bookworm and will not leave the house without her kindle.
When Laura is not writing or reading, she is Astrogirl –obsessing over space time continuum and how many icy objects exist in the Oort cloud. Yes, she is somewhat of a space geek and very much in love with the moon.
Preface . . .
A snowflake is symbolic of a moment, trapped and frozen in time. Each snowflake has its own imprint, like lives wrapped in laughter and joy, in grief and sorrow, unique, chaotic and beautiful moments that we are unable to recreate, for no two are the same.
Snowflakes taste of nostalgia, laced with bittersweet notes of waxy lemons and orange blossom honey. There’s no feeling quite like catching snowflakes, whether they’re melting on your tongue, clustered in the palm of your hand or preserved somewhere safe, somewhere only we know.
Like white winter butterflies arcing across silver skies and racing towards a fluorescent red sun, they are gone too soon. But here are some that lingered, that stayed with me. These snowflakes refused to melt on my breath and disappear at my fingertips. I’m throwing them up in the air, everywhere. And they’re yearning, yearning for you to catch them.
