I have an old soul and I recognized a long time ago that there were many far-flung worlds of magic to escape to, where fantastic characters and their tales were waiting to be discovered and articulated. I wanted nothing more than to capture the mythos of magical worlds and make them accessible in ways that would beguile and charm, frighten and enthrall, in short, enchant those of the mundane and non-magical world. Though I tried to work with the corporate world for a while, I soon became sadly aware there was simply no way to integrate my world of fey and magic into that of offices and timecards. At last, I was able to leave that world and return to the griffins and dragons, sorcerers and ælves, and many other genera of the fantasy universe (which is a far more corporeal world than many people realize). After years of traveling many lands—both otherworldly and commonplace—I settled in the Land of Enchantment, where else, with my husband and my cats and began to pull together the mythos of all those many mystical domains.
But telling a tale often takes more than memories and notes. Therefore, I frequently journey out into those realms to renew old acquaintances and make new friends. Even as they change, things do remain unbothered—some beings are good, some bad, many don’t know what they are, and it can be hard to discern one from the other. I listen to them although sometimes I can hardly tell the dark from the light, the up from the down. But I record each tale faithfully, and with the varieties of their species and the worlds they live in, full of discord and harmony, love and hate, virtue and corruption, life can be breathtaking!
I have two fantasy ebooks published and am working on sequels to both.
Dragon Rings, Book One, The Ring-Witches of Nesht
Summerbird Rises, Book One, An Act of Entreaty
Dragon’s Revenge is planned for release within the next few months. Summerbird’s Quest, hopefully, a little earlier.
