Exile . . .

Interesting note.

On the two major projects I'm finishing right now, both have the ideas of exiles as major themes.

One -- the exile of Judah to Babylon during the reign of Josiah's son, King Zedekiah.

The other -- the exile of the Jewish physicist Lise Mietner, who helped split the atom but was forced to run from the Berlin university where she was doing her work. She fled to the Netherlands -- a dangerous prospect for a woman with no official papers allowing her to cross the border.

Anyway -- if anyone is interested, when these boks come out in December 2007 or so, book three of both series -- Kingdoms and TimeFlyz, from Zondervan -- will have the unintended connecting theme of "exile".

Well, now, back to work.
