Wife, Mother, PTA President…

Julia Nelson is your typical wife, mother, and President of the PTA at her children’s school. Years ago, in a rebellious stage during her late teenage years, she got a tattoo on her ankle inspired by a dream that stoked the fires of her imagination with a passion that was yet to be realized.

Many years later, a chance encounter with one of Dr. Ashland Stewart’s archeology team members at a PTA meeting gives new meaning to Julia’s faded tattoo. She discovers the tattoo she was sure she had designed from her dreams is, in fact, a sacred emblem of an ancient goddess culture.


When Julia meets the renowned archeologist, Dr. Ashland Stewart their attraction is immediate and sexually charged. Dr. Stewart is convinced that Julia’s tattoo and the ancient symbol he discovered in Magoa are part of an ancient culture that thrived during the Three Kingdoms period. Magoa was a matriarchy and its leader was considered a goddess. Somehow, it appears that Julia and the goddess are linked through her sensual dreams of a time long ago.

Julia feels the mysterious pull of this ancient goddess and embarks on a sexual awakening with Dr. Steward as he frees her inner goddess. Julia has everything to lose as she undertakes this quest to come to grips with the deity she is linked to. Will she give up her family and comfortable life to embrace her new found love with Dr. Stewart?


I must say that I really enjoyed this story! Kelee Morris created a woman who was at the crossroads of her life with the character of Judith Nelson.

This was the kind of story that most women can relate to. Judith is in her early 40’s and suddenly realizes she has given up most of her adult life to a husband that travels for work and who has become emotionally distant. The rest of her time is spent raising her three daughters who are at various stages in their own lives. There has been little time to nurture or expand “Judith the woman,” sexually or intellectually.

Dr. Stewart offers Judith the chance to translate the writings of a priest that once visited the Magoan settlement. It is the goddess symbol that signifies a sexual enlightenment to Judith represented by the tattoo she possesses. It is the mystical link to Judith and this actual goddess that moves the story along bringing you to the fork in her life journey where real life intrudes upon her desires and responsibilities.

In erotic literature the true test for me is if you remove the sexual content, is there still a story? I can say for a fact that in this book what remains is an excellent story line.

Judith is really the study of a woman awakening her inner goddess and embracing her own sexuality. The theme of marital infidelity is essential to the plot and becomes the trigger that causes emotional growth.

The book ends with a cliffhanger of epic proportions! I understand that this is Kelee Morris’ debut novel and she is writing the sequel. I hope so. This was a well thought out novel heavy in character development. I can’t wait to find out what happens next to Judith and her quest to find her true inner goddess.

About Kelee Morris:

Growing up restless and bored in Terre Haute, Indiana, Kelee Morris first discovered romance when she was swept away by Thomas Hardy’s “Far From A Madding Crowd.” After earning degrees in Comparative Literature and Film, Morris pursued screenwriter, winning numerous awards and coming tantalizingly close to catching Hollywood’s brass ring.

Tired of high-concept plots and rigid, three-act structure, Morris awoke one morning with Julia Nelson’s duel life of the suburban mother and illicit lover fully formed in her mind. Her first novel “Goddess” is the result.

Morris now lives in Chicago, where she is rarely bored thanks to her family and too many pets to count.
