A Paranormal Period Piece

Bewitching_LI love dark things, and I love period pieces. I love the paranormal side of life, and I love the Victorian era. I love intrigue, and I love romance. So what did I do? I incorporated all that wonderful stuff into my latest series: Tales From Hawthorn Lane, a sensual saga that takes place in the dark and magical village of Hawthorn Lane – a sanctuary for the fey.

Although it’s modern day, the villagers live as though in another time, with long dresses and twirling cloaks, crackling fires and fancy carriages. Trouble’s always brewing in this beguiling world, where light and dark are in a constant battle for control. Lorelle Gragan, the main character, struggles to find herself, to shed her mask, to believe in love in this strange and chaotic world where nothing is as it seems. Beneath the facade she wears to protect herself lurks a powerful sensual force that’s just waiting to break free, and when it does, nothing will ever be the same for her or the residents of Hawthorn Lane.

Take a look at the synopsis for Bewitching Hawthorn Lane, the first book in the series…

A Magical World

Mountain Clouds

On the way to Lost Gorge

My latest trilogy series, the Forest Immortal Saga, stars three brothers, a dark woods, and a secret. The more you get to know me, the more you’ll see that I have a thing for dark woods. And for magic and the paranormal. And for all things Native American/Indian. And for caves. And for waterfalls, too.

One of the settings in Oswald’s Revenge (Book Two of the FIS) has a number of these elements all gathered together in one location. The area-it’s a hideout-is set in a large ravine with a rock-strewn river, numerous waterfalls, several caves, and giant boulders perfect for climbing. Lost River Gorge and Boulder Caves in New Hampshire served as the inspiration for the hideout and it is gorge-ous!

It’s also magical and mysterious…

The Next Big Thing

THE NEXT BIG THING is a chain of book and author recommendations. Each author answers some questions about their work, then recommends other authors…


1. What is the working title of your next book?


The Chronicles of Anaedor: The Lost Ones. It’s book three in a series of four books. Books One (The Prophecies) and Two (The Return to Anaedor) have already been published. If they weren’t, I’d be annoyed if I were you.


2.  Where did the idea come from for the book?


I was living in the city at the time, which was not my favorite place, being that I’m a country girl at heart, but it had this wonderful park full of ravines and streams that totally saved me. One day I was walking through the park, contemplating life, when I imagined that a creature was peeping out from beneath a rock, watching me pass by. Kind of creepy, I suppose, but it jump-started my idea of the hidden, underground world of Anaedor.

Prince Caspian Is Coming!

So who’s getting excited about the next Chronicles of Narnia movie coming out? Me! And if you know what’s good for you, you’ll be excited, too. Spring has sprung in New England and everything is looking fresh and wonderful. I am full of hope and ready for all the great things coming my way. What better way to greet spring than with an epic adventure that was filmed in Ireland, one of my favorite ‘I can’t wait to visit’ countries, among other exotic locations?

Ah, yes… Prince Caspian is coming!

What’s Yours Is Mine?

The other day, I went on Yahoo! to check my email and saw a news article featuring J. K. Rowling, well-known author of the Harry Potter books (not to be confused with the lesser known J. K. Rowling who wrote about The Mating Habits of the African Shrew). Of course I had to read the article. I’ll read anything related to the world of fantasy, plus I’m a bit of a snoop that way. This particular article was about a lawsuit between Rowling and a middle school librarian named Steven Vander Ark. Vander Ark recently snagged a book deal to publish the elaborate Harry Potter lexicon he created, via the website the Harry Potter Lexicon (HPL). J. K. Rowling does not want him to publish it, noting that she has plans for publishing a lexicon herself.

Should he be allowed to publish his work, or not? What do you think? Unsure? Don’t care? Not to worry, I’ve got enough opinions for both of us.
