Welcome

This is a new beginning for me - not only am I on the way to becoming a published author, but I look forward to expanding both the writing and fiber arts in a variety of ways. While it seems a little overwhelming the path to becoming published, it is well worth the adventure.

My book, Azure Maris, is planned to be released around Christmas time. As the time approaches, I will add more about the book as I go. Here is a synopsis of what the book is about:

What does it mean to be a mermaid out of water? Azure Maris, princess of Deep Waters is grounded in the Chesapeake Bay region. She must learn how to live life above the waves while she strives to return home. She cannot return home since the sea kingdom off the coast opposes Azure's kingdom. In addition, Azure finds that she is the object of affection to Mano Leo-mana, a sumu ba-ashma - fallen angel - who desires to destroy Deep Waters. Azure knows of the sumu ba-ashma, but has never met one or fend off the romantic attentions of one.

The Frankels, who took Azure into their home, realize that God, as well as His creation, is bigger than they ever thought possible. Hiram and Helen Frankel struggle with the news that Azure has revealed, even as they struggle with the concept of their son, Eliam falling in love with Azure . . . and she with him.

Not all that resides below the waves honors the Most High. Not everything that swims in the waters is as it appears. The question becomes clear: when fallen angels walk and mermaids dance, just how big is your God?

Chapter Four - The Board and Council

The town center was the oldest and grayest part of the town, though, even there the buildings were still colorful with the stone buildings being blue-gray, pink-gray and lavender-gray. In the center of town, marking the absolute center of the town, was a park area with a fountain in the center, the fountain led down into an underground grotto which was currently overflowing with people not unlike the fountain above it. “Looks like it’s connected,” Ramses said. “I think Mederei said it was had healing properties.” “That would be the place to look for the tapestries.” “Mama,” a child whispered loudly. Why was it when children whispered they yelled? “Why is that man so brown?” “Shh, honey, he’s probably from the capital region.” “No, Mama, they’re black, he isn’t. He’s brown, and scary looking.” The boy, blonde haired and blue eyed like his mother, was probably from the town. It was said that on the Isle of Caergwl├ón, the darkest were those in the capital and from there, they lost their color…

Chapter Twenty - Bastllyr

Sorry for the delay on publishing, but here is the next chapter in Mederei's adventures. Currently, I have finished the book (wild cheering), but I have come to the conclusion that I need to improve my battle scenes. To that end, the upcoming chapters may not be ... as high of quality as I hope. 


“Climbing up the hill we go, we go; along the merry paths we go, we go. Sunshine fading, 'ventures waiting, up we go, we go,” Mederei sang, slightly off key as they climbed. “Can't you think of a better song than that?” Caradoc grumbled, four steps ahead of her. “But it's perfect. We're climbing up the mountain to the sunshine and the god.” “You've been singing it nonstop for the past ten minutes. Come up with another song. Anything.” “It might have been me there with you; it might have been me, and my dreams coming true.” “UGH!” “You wanted another song.” “Anything but that sappy song! It gets stuck in your brain ...” They walked in silence around a series of large boulders o…

Chapter Nineteen - Negotiations

And we're back! Apparently my computer was sick, needed a reboot and now I'm in the process of organizing it all over again. Ah well. 


She was annoyingly brilliant, stubborn and naive; he was equally brilliant and stubborn, but not as naive. Kiango and Mederei were too valuable to the kingdom to remain in constant battles, but that's where they often found themselves. Both trying to solve a problem to help their families, friends or kingdom, but often going about it the completely opposite ways. Both had the power and prestige related to their families, and both wielded that power in strange and unusual ways. Kiango used his influence to lead the younger members of the society, but unlike other members of the royal family, had little magic. Mederei's magical power had to remain regulated and hidden because of the rules. How much of Mederei's ability Kiango knew about though ... They would always remain in conflict with one another, but there had to be some way they c…
