Author Maureen Fisherabout this book: This is the story of how I developed the plot for The Jaguar Legacy.

Once upon a time, long, long ago, I was gainfully employed as a management consultant. Over time, snappy business suits, difficult clients, and rush hour traffic grew increasingly onerous. I still didn't know what I wanted to be when I grew up, but I was certain of one thing—it wasn't a consultant. Perhaps writing books would be more to my liking.

Always an over-achiever, I quit my day job, joined the Ottawa branch of the RWA, and enrolled in a one-week seminar on novel-writing. Two days into the course, the instructor gave us homework: Write the back cover blurb for our novel.

Eeeeeek! What novel?

When my panic finally subsided into stomach-churning anxiety, I pulled together the concept of the occult energy of an archaeological dig triggering the heroine's flashbacks to her past life as an Olmec High Priestess. I chose Olmecs over the more familiar Aztecs, Mayans, or Zapotecs, mainly because only a smattering of information exists. I could invent to my heart's content. The one thing archaeologists appear to agree on, however, is that the Olmecs believed they could shapeshift into the jaguar they worshipped.

My imagination kicked into high gear. Pumped, I got to work on The Jaguar Legacy.
The rest is history. I won't bore you with gory details, but here's the important part. As I wrote the book, it gradually occurred to me that the past life I was describing was one of my own. My spiritual healer agrees. So does my Inner Voice. Certainly, the flashbacks in the book were the parts that flowed most easily, the parts that required little or no editing, the parts that presented the author (me) with surprising revelations that resolved many plot issues.

If, indeed, The Jaguar Legacy describes one of my past lives, I was one bad-ass Olmec with accumulated karma. That means I need to figure out the lessons I'm here to learn during this lifetime. Happily, I'm an over-achiever.

In case readers are wondering, I should probably mention that the shapeshifting in The Jaguar Legacy was a figment of my imagination.

Or was it?
