Robin Suzanne Gregoryabout this book: My book is about a disabled boy who, through friendship with otherworldly beings, discovers miraculous powers his kinfolk refuse to recognize. It is Young Adult, visionary, magical realism.
My son inspired me to write it. He came into this life with multiple special needs. He has been an amazing teacher, and the greatest gift I could imagine. What better gift can there be than a relationship that causes you to give up non-essential activities, and learn to trust The Creator? Raising my son and decades of spiritual study led to wanting to tell a story that encompassed much of what we have both learned along the trajectory of this life. I wanted to support others in finding freedom from suffering and limitation. Who among us doesn't deal with challenges? I can name two. They are cats.
The primary readers of this book are those who think in philosophical and mystical ways, those who love language, and read with an open mind. The book was written for the family, for fluent readers of any age. It is getting great reviews from university professors as well as middle school students.
It took 13 years to write. Yep. Thirteen. Wait. What?
Titles are a bear, aren't they? The main character, Moojie, is of mixed heritage, disabled and gifted. "Mooji" is an ethnic slur against Muslim Indians, but it is also the name of a revered spiritual leader today. "Improbable Wonders" appealed to me because it has a certain irony and tension.
I'm running out of room! Moojie's story will encourage readers to explore their spiritual aspects, and the nature of reality. It shows mercy as a powerful healer. I hope readers enjoy the book. Mostly, I hope it feeds their soul.
