"The Elizabeth's" is a story of three women whose life changing tragedies pull them into a paradox of parallel dimensions where they encounter other lives connected to their own. During the month of June the lives of these three women, Liz, Beth and Eliza, commingle and intertwine as parallel dimensions collide, and for one extraordinary June they realize they are part of each other, each of their lives contained within the essence of the other two. But with revelation comes danger and as they converge to share physical space so too do the mysteries surrounding them, and on the day of the summer solstice, all they share and all they possess may be just enough to save them. A metaphysical exploration that weaves quantum physics together with the essence of being human, Mowery's debut is a probing heartfelt journey into magical realism that will leave you breathless. And the emotional as well as the physical connections she draws are mesmerizing, literally opening whole new worlds of experience and wonder. A journey of extraordinary hope and amazement. "The Elizabeth's" will forever change the way you view the world and possible realities held within it.

Judith Nichols Mowery is an artist and writer who has lived most of her life within the Pacific Northwest. When she experienced an event that showed her one of her own parallel lives, she meditated on the event and was led to write a book based on the subject - THE ELIZABETHS. Guided by friend and clairvoyant Norma Nelson, she learned of metaphysical events which happen due to changes and powers within our Universe. This information colors her writings and the first to be published is "The Elizabeth's"Asked if she found writing a novel difficult, Judith replied, "When the story came and stuck to me, writing the first draft was a thrill a minute. At that time the story came fast and furious bringing these women to me and showing the directions they wanted to go. When it came to the reality of editing I found it difficult to slow down and rewrite pages which would allow others to meet these women and come to understand the paradox they found themselves. After several edits something inside me finally said "Enough." and I sent the women off to be published. "For this book I have to give thanks to the Word computer program I used and for several friends who read and edited THE ELIZABETHS and gave me great encouragement - Florence, Ellie, and Marcene. "I especially have to thank THE ELIZABETHS for introducing themselves and bringing their stories and Redcliffs Beach to me. As anyone who intensely works on a project knows, you are sucked deep into and time disappears. I lost myself for hours at a time and when reality returned, the day had passed without my notice. In order to break up these intense times, I set an alarm for sessions to be no longer than three hours. This helped me enjoy the beauty around my area and motivate me to get away for a walk or chat or even a chore or two. Afterwards, I am refreshed and my creative energy is renewed."Judith lives in Lacey, Washington, and has two grown children, Eric and Elaine who both live in Seattle, Washington.

Whittled down to its bare-bones plot, the novel has potential, but for that potential to be realized, expository information needs to be seamlessly incorporated into the narrative, actions and words need to be consistent, and the narrative on the whole needs to be edited for clarity.
