The Talon Story
I wanted to write a story about a handicapped or challenged girl to show readers what they can achieve if they put their minds not to the negativity but to the positivity. As Matica had to learn it as well, and I have done nearly my whole life myself: Being rejected in school as well, I was always an outsider, keeping to myself in the shell of a turtle, had hardly any friends.
Since I love birds, I decided to let her have a bird. But then came, what bird? And then the idea went even further. What if she could fly on the bird? That would be something. But to do that, she has to have a disability to be very small. But again, the bird has to be big as well. And there the condor came to my mind.
I loved the condors before. Amazing birds. They are the biggest land birds (vulture) on our wonderful earth. And so the story about Matica and Talon came to existence. And then I had to set the scene in Peru close to the great Andes where the condors live.
And so it came, that I decided to let her family go to Peru as missionary from Australia.Try Audible Premium Plus and Get Up to Two Free Audiobooks
