Wordsmithing Magic from the Crossroads

Spiral notebook I decoupaged butterfly images


I have been writing, journaling, and generally in love with the written word ever since I was very little.North Carolina Writers Network membership badge, for members only

For decades, I nurtured this passion by writing countless articles, reviews, essays, freelance copy, blog posts, and other ephemera (not to mention vast volumes of IT instruction and technical manuals. Whee!)

But it’s time to produce the books that have been tugging on my heart.

Currently, I have one that is self-published and available for purchase, and three others in various stages of development.

Works in Progress:

Tarot Books

After over 1,000 weekly Tarot blog posts, my clients, website visitors, and friends convinced me to consolidate my Card of the Week essays into an organized reference book.

I have now completed a very rough first draft, with an added twist or two I think you’re going to like. Stay tuned for further news!

In addition, I have a second book up my sleeve. It is already in outline form and will soon get underway.

Magical Fiction

Beth walking on grass through abandoned homes and buildings at NC mill villageI always wanted to be a novelist, and yet life diverted me first one way and then another.

Until the “Lockdown Summer” of 2020.

That’s when I realized that, slipping into my late 60s and surrounded by a global pandemic, it’s now or never.

I chose “now,” and, as if I’d been heard, a magical story came to me out of the blue. I got straight to work and have most of a first draft, which I will return to as soon as I finish my Tarot book.

And lined up right behind these are several other novels that are waiting their turn. Updates will be posted in the “Magical Fiction” link.

Art does not try to communicate;
it calls for communion.
