      Praise for Walking Fish  

     I savored the complex and surprising inter-relationships
     of these families,
each unusual (but believable),
     as the characters, risking the dangers of change
     and the necessity of testing experiences, move
     out ot their native elements to find ultimately
     satisfying resolutions where doors are open into the
     new and unfamiliar.  
     -Phyllis Hoge Thompson, poet and author of 
he Painted Clock: Memoirs  of a New Mexico Ghost Town Bride.

     Joanne Bodin's tale of a woman reinventing
     herself and taking charge of her life, is a balm for the soul.

     Sean Murphy,  author of
The Hope Valley Hubcap King
     and The Time of New Weather.

     A Quirk of Fate, A Journey Begins


      Talia, an eccentric artist, lives in the quaint town
      of Corrales, New Mexico with her partner Renie.
      For the past twenty years on December 15th, Talia has
      lit a candle to mark the day she had to leave California
      to start a new life, leaving behind her five year old
      daughter, Sophie. But, through
a quirk of fate,
      Talia is catapulted into an unfolding
saga that compels
      her to revisit her unconventional past, revealing truths
      that change the lives of everyone involved.

      This provocative, emotionally charged novel delves
      into the inner worlds of people grappling with
      painful paradoxes of life, and like the walking fish,
      they must find ways to adapt in order to survive.
