GIBSONS, BC, CANADA (03/08/17) – What is that bright light out there? Oh, it’s you! It’s me. It’s all of us. We all have the potential to shine brighter than we believe we can. It was this premise that inspired local author, Sheila Cameron, to write a non-fiction collection of stories called Shine Bright: Live A Supernova Life.
“I’ve always wanted to write, but I was hesitating,” says Cameron. “Then my husband handed me a quote about ‘shining like the freaking supernova you were meant to be’ and that inspired me to go ahead and share my stories. Sharing our stories is powerful. It builds connection and offers comfort and inspiration to others.”
The stories in Shine Bright offer an extraordinary glimpse into an ordinary life while showing how even small steps can add up to make a difference. Themes in the work include parenting, environment, food and community. Cameron often questions the status quo and considers how our choices affect ourselves and others.
Shine Bright is presented in sections that parallel a human life with the creation of a supernova in space. “This metaphor was perfect for exploring how we each have the means to break ourselves down, build ourselves up, and create a lasting impact in our world,” Cameron says.
Cameron will read from the book and lead a discussion about related themes at the Gibsons Public Library on Saturday, March 18 at 2 PM. She will also join local authors, Heather Conn and Claire Finlayson, for an evening of non-fiction readings at the Sechelt Public Library on Thursday, March 30 at 7pm.
Shine Bright: Live A Supernova Life, a non-fiction work published by Catch Our Drift Productions, will be available mid-March at Talewind Books in Sechelt, WOW! Art Café in Gibsons, and Earth Fair Books in Madeira Park.
