An intricately-described erotic love story set in the lush environs of Indonesia, Girl Submerged is a woman’s journey of uncovering buried sexual trauma, healing through intimacy, and her resulting spiritual awakening.
Avara Yaron is an entrepreneur and an artist with a lifelong passion for tropical islands. She particularly enjoys a coconut cappuccino accompanied by deep conversation and belly laughs.
A periodic shapeshifter, Avara has earned a film degree, a spiritual counseling license, and has explored life as a painter, filmmaker, designer, counselor, group facilitator, retreat leader, chef, and nutritional educator. For more than two decades Avara has had a romance with the island of Bali, initially as the manufacturing hub for the line of fine jewelry and handbags she designed. After traveling back and forth 24 times, she finally packed and moved to Bali. There she dreamed up two cafes serving plant based cuisine.
In the midst of all that food preparation, this story took over Avara’s life and she gave birth to the Girl Submerged trilogy of novels. The series merges two of the great loves of her life, the islands of Jamaica and Bali. Avara has a biological son, a daughter adopted from China, a wild dog and an abandoned cat. She wrote a food column for Inspired Bali magazine, and it should come as no surprise that this book has descriptions of food in it.
