So what happens after Murdoch and Joy live happily ever after? Well, for the first few years, nothing bad, so I skipped that part. However, after 15 years of King Galaschin’s competent rule, with his daughter about to be married, guess what skunk shows up at the picnic? Yup, it’s Rolf. A kinder Rolf, a … More Volume 2 Coming Soon!
I have found it! I, Tovan of the faer, watched from the shelter of the forest. At the foot of the hill, beyond the cluster of huts where they lived, the quetan bent to their harvest, shining blades swinging in the bright sunlight. One corner of the field they would not cut, they could not. … More Murdoch’s Tale, Chapter 1
Hi there! Just back from the Maryland Faerie Festival, where, sitting at a table with 3 more-experienced author/self-marketers, I learned various valuable things: 1 Have a small easel so you can prop up a copy of your book on the table. 2 Be prepared for rain. Carry your books in a plastic box, not the … More Selling to Faeries

Lady Avice de Lancaster appears in Murdoch’s Tale, a minor yet pivotal character. In real life, other than giving birth to a daughter and a son and ruling Lancaster in her own right, I have been hard-pressed to find anything notable that Avice did.
