During the time it’s taken me to edit and post this interview, Louise has come out with not one, but two more books. I know you’ll love them: The Beautiful Mystery (read an excerpt), How the Light Gets In (read an excerpt), and The Long Way Home.

Miss Penny made a very interesting statement about writing. She said she is able to create a safe place emotionally by writing and reading books. As an artist, I share this emotion with her.

Despite all the hard work and sweat that goes into creating that product, it is extremely rewarding experience to express what you want to say visually or literally. Her stay at the monastery was so intriguing to me. I would love to hear the chants sung by these monks. Can you share where I can find this on YouTube.
