Thankful Author Blog Posts

Yes, you have come to the right place!

If you like stories with a mix of adventure, magic, a light sprinkling of humor and the promise of romance, if you enjoy a tale that weaves in a thread of fairy tale, myth or history, but insist on a happy ending...then this is definitely the place to be.

Fairytale-inspired, Regency paranormal romances

If you yearn to take a step beyond the ordinary world while pondering the purpose of life, then linger awhile, because chances are good that you will enjoy this journey.

My stories reflect my longing for a marriage between fantasy and history, while searching for a deeper meaning to life. Under THIS LAND, you'll find not only Regencies (historical tales from the early 1800s), but also adventurous fantasies with a romantic flavor.

Here, heroes and heroines will be called upon to cast complex spells, defy society's rules, perhaps even fly a contemptuous dragon. And although they'll swear they had intended to keep love firmly at arm's length, avoiding it can sometimes be like holding onto a chimera by its tail.

I bid you welcome ... and hope you enjoy your stay.

  • The Starling at On The Premises
    A short story set in a fantasy world similar to an Indus civilization that existed in northeastern India around 1500 BC (4,913 words).

    Too bad Heramba hadn't seen fit to take away his father's ability to speak when he turned him into a bird for insulting him. Now, that would have been a magnificent spell worthy of a great magician like Haramba.

    "You're going the wrong way," Manu said, eyes tightly shut and head stuck into his feathery back.

    Nirad ignored his father's cutting comment. Heramba had been born in Nelgira and it was his favoured haunt. It was also rumored the mage had headed this way not two days ago. So he was sure to find him here. And inside Nirad's pack was the emperor's writ ordering Haramba to turn Manu back into a human. The moment Nirad delivered the writ he would be free of his father. Free from slaving away at innumerable never-ending chores. Free of his constant criticisms.

  • The Engagement Ring at Gumshoe Review, A Literary Investigation
    A short story contemporary mystery (989 words).
  • Maria twirled her old-fashioned engagement ring until the large central diamond and surrounding chips of amber glinted in the morning light.

    "Why don't you return it?" Nate asked his sister, mesmerized by the restless twirl of light and color.

    Since her breakup, Maria never stood still for a moment. Like those stones, his sister felt forever awhirl without the man who once proclaimed to love her at her side.

    She shoved the ring into his hand. "Will you keep it safe? In case he tries to take it back?"

    The dark circles under her eyes spoke of sleepless nights. Guilt reared and he squirreled it away, like repacking an annoying Jack-in-the-box. I'm a cop, how could I not warn her about Steve's family being notorious jewel thieves? Even if Steven Fenton claimed to be a law-abiding citizen, his father and sister were known, wanted criminals.
