The full moon and the energies associated with the sacred feminine empower the medicine women of the Unholy. By remaining in tune with nature, its cycles and rhythms, the women sense healing and movements of energy that guide the course of life. Truth to nature reflects an essential instinct within self.
In The Unholy, five-year-old Claire watches on in "...the eerie light of the full moon. As his pole caught the moonlight and a golden glow bounced back onto the figure, the girl saw his face with its cold blue eyes that pierced the nighttime chill." Moonlight piercing through the veil of darkness, metaphorically cuts through what appears to be so that we can see and understand what is.
Feminine energy, the light of the full moon, sends its rays through the darkness and exposes harsh and destructive patriarchal ways. A spiritual chill runs through psychic veins when in the presence of the dark spiritual forces that seek to dominate and bring human will under submission. Claire, the innocence within, is forever haunted by this memory as an image of the towering oppression of the dark side of patriarchal religion and the human cry for freedom, an essential instinct within the self.

1. Can you give us a little background behind The Unholy?
The story comes out of over thirty years of treating patients in psychotherapy who are survivors of the dark side of religion…have been used and abused and cast to the side. I’ve seen that when this happens people, those around the victim, to include family and friends, often turn a blind eye and deny what has happened. Rather than writing a self-help book I decided to approach this realm of human suffering in fiction.

"The moon vanished behind dark clouds rolling overhead. Then came a scream of terror that cut to the bone." Five-year old Claire Sanchez witnesses the moon overhead, light streaming on a terrifying scene. Her mother is brutalized and murdered by a black-cloaked man.
Moonlight sheds light, feminine energy, on hidden aspects of self. There is a little child in all of us that hides things, stores away what is frightening. Subtle feminine energy brings to light that which we most fear.
The Unholy brings us face to face with the dark, black-cloaked, side of religion. We learn that it can kill. The human psyche yearns for healing and freedom. Subtle feminine energy within us, like the light of the moon, exposes, often in a way that makes us scream with terror that cuts to the bone, religious fears and dangers in the offing. Moonlight, subtle feminine energy within the psyche, helps us to face what must be faced so that our path can be taken with all of its challenges and life-altering decisions.
