The day I have waited for since I was a child has finally arrived! My début novel, The Heart Stone Chronicles: The Swamp Fairy has reincarnated itself into the realm of the real world.
I can’t think of a better way to enter the new year!
I must say a special thank you to the blogging community who has supported me the last few years. You all know who you are. I have learned much from the many talented and gifted authors and poets who have guided me through my writing journey. Thank you for your patience and your most meaningful gifts – the gift of your time. ❤
I wrote this story inspired by the natural beauty of Northwestern Florida with an environmental theme – that of the disappearing wetlands. Abby Forester’s story intertwines with that of the fairy nymphs, sworn to protect a sacred plant that holds the key to supporting our human existence.
The story is written for children, “tweens,” and those of us young at heart who believe in the magic found all around us in the natural world. If you look and open your heart to the natural beauty that surrounds you, the vibrations from the horizontal realm will bewitch you with their magic, just as they have inspired my writing.
I hope you will enjoy Abby Forester’s journey. And, if you or that special “tween” in your life would like to experience a bit of their own fairy magic, The calcite fairy stone necklaces, made by IreneDesign2011 are available to order. One look at these magical pendants and you too will want a fairy stone like Abby wears in the novel.
Here’s how to get your own:
