"Creativity for me takes many forms, which include, in addition to traditional arts, raising a family, gardening with my husband, making music in the community, and serving as a creative medium to help others." You can visit the author on Facebook at The Moon in the Morning: A Fairytale with a New Twist for inspiration, a deeper appreciation of themes in the novel and for pure delight and fun. Rebecca Nebesar has spent her life bringing inspiration to fruition in many ways. In addition to drawing and painting, she designs jewelry, spins, weaves, knits, and sews fine clothing and costumes. Nebesar has made costumes for various theater and dance productions, including for the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and for the Boston Ballet. For several years she taught art. She has written articles on pattern-making and clothing design published in Threads Magazine. Nebesar holds a bachelor's degree in design from Cornell University's College of Human Ecology and a masters degree in education in integrating art in the curriculum from Leslie University. Married for 35 years and mother of four grown children, she now has time to live her art dream, which involves having time and space unlimited to create.*****A Note to Readers***** "It is so easy to get lost in a book", the heroine of The Moon in The Morning says at some point. Rebecca Nebesar's fairytale with a new twist is just that kind of book; it draws the reader into its graciously woven episodes. And what is being woven? Through the eyes of Jean, the 12 year old heroine surrounded by the memory of her beloved grandmother and in search of her mature self, we enter a magical world, where the real and the imaginary are not antonyms anymore. But this is not just any fairytale; it is not a world of naïve fantasy. The skill of Rebecca Nebesar is that she manages to draw the reader unbeknownst into a very sophisticated kind of world. One in which Greek goddesses coexist with magical Dust Bunnies, in which language itself acquires magical plasticity, a world of poetry and inspiring books, but also the contemporary world of a teenager in the 'google-age'. The reader of any age will be thrilled to discover how all the events and images connect into a gracious pattern of which so many moments in the story are symbolic - from the spider-web of Grandmother Spider to Jean sewing a blanket out of her old jeans! The five books that compose the story - the books of Magic, Learning, Memory, Beauty and Truth- build up a spiritual ladder on which Jean has to ascend. Each of the books also opens a new gate into a luxuriant imaginary world which the author completes with her own vivid illustrations." This was written by a recent reader. I thank her for her perceptive review.
