Fateful Magic – Chapter 9

The girl in this photo is pretty happy about going to the ball. Emilia is definitely not happy about the party she’s attending. But the dress is kinda like I imagined, and the backdrop was just too cool to pass up. “No,” Emilia said. “Absolutely not.” Tiff lowered the gown she’d been displaying. The lace, …

Fateful Magic – Chapter 8

Happy New Year! I’ve been getting some writing done over the holiday. I hope you’ve been enjoying yours! Trees rise all around Emilia, dim and blurred by fog, their tangy, resinous scent so rich she can almost taste it. The air is chill and grey with pre-dawn light. Water drips from dark evergreen needles with …

Fateful Magic – Chapter 5

Well, the election is finally over. Everyone seems variously shocked, panicked, horrified, elated or some combination. Certainly we’re on uncharted and uncertain ground, waiting to find out what happens next. I’d sure like Emilia’s ability to see the future! …or maybe not. For now, I’m finding solace in writing about my crime lord. I enjoy thinking …

Fateful Magic – Chapter 3

Here’s the latest installment of Fateful Magic. If you missed the beginning, you can read it here. It’s fun looking for images to go with the chapters. At first, I was going to include one of Tiff, but then I decided, no. It’s got to be Vadim Dragovich (pronounced vah-DEEM), the Dragon of Russia and the …

You might notice two different covers for Could It Be Magic, the latest book in The Land of Enchantment series. This one, with the photo of Albuquerque and the Sandia Mountains in the background… …and this one. I’m doing some A/B testing to see which cover readers prefer. What are your thoughts?

Jas and Amethyst

I found a cute illustration on Pinterest that’s almost perfect for Jas and Amethyst after the party in in Chapter 6 of Could It Be Magic. Except Jas has black eyes, not blue.The artist’s name is Reena, who goes by the handle rejoboart on Tumblr. Amethyst made herself let him go, put her hands on his …

Could It Be Magic – Chapter 15

Could It Be Magic is now available on Amazon, iTunes, B&N and other major ebook retailers. I hope you enjoy the book! Snow Day It shouldn’t have been obvious. But watching Melodie’s gaze travel around the living room, Amethyst was afraid it was. The tablet that wasn’t hers, sitting on the round maple table by …

Could It Be Magic – Chapter 14

Second Thoughts Jas wasn’t coming back. Amethyst was sure of it now. She sat by herself at the dining room table eating a stuffed baked potato for dinner and pretending the realization didn’t make her stomach upset. It just meant she could have the other potato, the one in the fridge, tomorrow. She looked at …

Could It Be Magic – Chapter 13

One Step Forward… “Jas,” Amethyst said, “you can’t work from home forever.” He sat at his end-of-the-dining-room-table workstation, sipping from the coffee mug in one hand, clicking and scrolling with the mouse in the other. Today he wore a black sweatshirt that announced Bezos is my Dark Lord in menacing, crackly white letters with a …

Could It Be Magic – Chapter 12

Drives Me Crazy Amethyst woke to Caramela’s soft boof. Early light filtered through the shades, painting the comforter and bedroom furniture in shades of lavender and blue. Ears up, head raised, the dog faced the bedroom door. For an instant, Amethyst wondered why the door was closed. The sound of the water running in the …
