Serial Novel: EuXomai


I’ve decided on Wattpad I will be publishing a serial novel entitled EuXomai, after the Greek word to wish. This is a more frivolous for fun read while I work on Lilith for publication. My goals are to create a community fo my readers to share future and current projects with. Only the first chapter is up and will be updated bi-weekly on Tuesday and Friday evenings. Read below to gt a sense of the adventure that awaits you this YA/NA Space fantasy!

It all started with a wish…

“Twinkle Twinkle little star how I wonder what you are…” Thea hummed to herself as she walked around Lunaria’s outer wall. What was she? She was a wish made real. She was the wish of Katherine “Katie” Reynolds, to fall in love. Her skin is made of constellations, her hair of starlight, and in the sunshine, she becomes less corporeal because she isn’t real, she’s a Wish. Children in the planetary sister city to Lunaria, Alaria are warned, “Do not wish upon a star demons and nightmares are all they are” but Thea preferred the old version of the nursery rhyme. What was she? Why was she?

Katie straps on her leather vest, calf and forearm braces, shoulder pads, and wraps a piece of leather around her midsection. Her curly hair curls about her ears and she pulls it back into a knot at her neck. A moonstone dagger sits in a sheath at her hip. She leans over and rests a soft kiss on her the hard granite stone before her. She gets up, takes a breath and walks back into the hustle and bustle of Alaria heading toward the capitol building to sign up to visit Lunaria and kill her Wish.

Winter Solstice 2015: Happy Yuletide!

This is winter solstice, the longest night of the year. Darkness reigns triumphant, yet gives away and changes into light. All is cold, and I await the coming of dawn. As the sun rises, the triple goddess once more gives birth to the divine child. In silence and wonder I stand before the sacred cauldron of rebirth, knowing that one day I too must pass through the cauldron and be reborn. For this I now give honor to the triple goddess.”

Found this little piece for the solstice online. Having grown up Christian and then converted to Paganism finding the parallels are so interesting. While in Burning Alexandria, I don’t much allude to the majority religion Christianity, it is interesting to note in my own life.

Burning Alexandria is a work in progress, soon to be published independently by the author. It is a historical Supernatural young adult work of fiction. Follow me here to hear all the latest!


Happy Yuletide! (and Merry Christmas!)
