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…

A Spelunking I Will Go

There’s a reason I wrote a fantasy series about an underground world…I love caves! I think I would live in one if I could. A simpler dream of mine is to someday explore a cave without following a cement path or listening to a guide. I want to get down and dirty and crawl on my belly and maybe even get stuck once or twice. I’ve visited several caves in my day, but as all cave junkies know, the guided tours, though typically fun and interesting, can leave you feeling unfulfilled.

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.

The Little Red Building on the Corner

For several months now I have been intrigued by the little red building on the corner. Day after day, I’ve seen workers coming and going, and vans and utility trucks driving in and out, busy as bees. The building is quiet now, yet I can tell work still continues inside, and I wonder is it ever going to be finished? And when it is, What’s my little red building going to be?

My imagination hasn’t exactly run amok with mad ideas, but it has conjured up a few scenarios:
