About Joyce Kostakis
My latest journey has taken me to Portland Oregon as a Project Manager. I decided to spend rainy days writing my first novel in a planned series. I have always been intrigued by quantum science. I came up with the idea for the plot of Walk-In Investigations, a paranormal detective mystery while imagining how helpful it would be if a detective had access to infinite possibilities that could occur in multiverses if multiple worlds existed. I like to think that I write from a place that blurs the lines between fiction and the many interacting worlds theory. I creatively built a realm where the protagonist, Homicide Detective Katie Hanson after a failed suicide attempt, can cross dimensions and communicate with her parallel counterpart. Through this parallel world connection, Katie learns to channel deceased victims for clues in solving her cold case.
My second book is fiction and was inspired by watching my two dogs interact on a daily basis. They were so loving, gentle and forgiving of each other, I decided to follow in their footsteps as best I could.
Dog Inspired Lessons provides big life lessons with heart-warming photos that show us dogs aren’t just man’s best friend—they can be man’s (and woman’s!) best teacher too. Cooper’s ability to leave an abusive past behind and trust again will inspire you. Max’s pure joy and capacity to live in the moment will change the way you see the world.
Watch out for these small blessings and allow your pets to change your life: after all, we could all use a little inspiration to mirror our dog’s ability to let go, love unconditionally and live in the moment.
