Play the Christmas Carol Game

...your book, your story
pull up a chair, put up your feet...

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. Then this is the place to be.

A Beastly Scandal

Currently, three TV series have caught my eye: WITCHES OF EAST END, ONCE UPON A TIME and SLEEPY HOLLOW. And regular residents on my bookshelves are Terry Pratchett, Martha Wells and Jane Austen.

If you, too, yearn to take a step beyond the ordinary world, 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. 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.


January to March 2015

We begin with "Christmas Past" (i.e. looking at books read long ago or previously published)...starring the HEROES (on Mondays), HEROINES (on Wednesdays), and SIDE CHARACTERS (on Fridays) that we love!


Pick a book, any book, any genre (keep it family friendly) that you particularly enjoyed reading in the far past. Find the FB post that leads it off for that week, and post as a comment below it, your "Reader's Take," from your favorite book of the hero (on Mon), Heroine (on Wed) or side character (on Fri). And also add a "Buy Link" where other readers can find that wonderful book.

Love, like magic, is often unplanned, untimely and ...thoroughly uncontrollable
