Wordsmithing Magic from the Crossroads

My Magical Fiction

Misty watercolor of trees and lakeEver since I was a little girl, I was sure I would be a storyteller and author. Well, up to now, that has only partially come true. After all, every Tarot reading contains a story, and over the years, I have written countless hundreds of articles, reviews, and essays.

But other than several notebooks full of false starts, my fiction-writing aspirations have puttered around on the back burner.

Until last Summer.

While all the world was on lockdown, I recognized that it was high time I gave my dream its full respect. I did not have a clue what to do about it or where to begin, just that it was imperative and necessary.

Then suddenly, within days of making that commitment, as if in answer, a story I never expected blossomed within my heart.

With it has come a whole new way of writing with a shockingly steep learning curve. Nevertheless, I am quite in love with all of it: learning the process and unfolding the story, both.

After months of preliminary work (not quite a first draft), it is graciously stepping back and waiting its turn while I complete my Tarot books.

Lined up right behind it are several other novels that are also eager to see the light of day.

I can hardly wait to get back to it and share it with you!

Words not only describe what they say,
but also suggest what can never be said.
