If You’ve Found This Blog…

…you’re probably looking for my writing. Here’s where you can find it!

My Dreamwidth Blog holds most of my day-to-day writing, as well as, currently, Inner Circle (see below).  Prompts such as 3 Word Wednesday go there.

Inner Circle, a webserial set in a far-post-apoc magical world: Getting to the Inner Circle can take a lifetime – or cost you your life.

Edally Academy is my  second current webserial, a steampunk boarding school.  All Tairiekie wants is to be better at school than her parents were.  Will the Academy cooperate?

Addergoole and Addergoole: Year 9 are the serials I’m best known for; both are complete, but a rewritten e-book for Addergoole Book One should be coming out soon.

The (Fictional) Apocalypse is being live-blogged on DreamwidthTumblr, and Twitter.

I’ve been published in Shifting Hearts, a therian anthology, and in Kazka Press, & EMG-Zine, both webzines.

And you can talk to me on Twitter and Tumblror find me on Patreon.

The Aunt Family Setting – A Welcome

The family – Evangaline’s family, Beryl’s family, the family – has known known how to use power for a very long time. They’ve known who should have power, too – them, of course, and preferably nobody else.

It’s a big family, but there’s a lot of power to be had; they’ve been collecting it for quite a while.

And, because they understand – through hard experience, in some cases – what happens it you hold power without paying sufficient attention to it, the family condenses that power into one person in each branch of the family, an unmarried, childless woman who has, so the theory goes, no distractions from her power. Because the family is not known for its creativity, they call this woman the Aunt – and she is always the niece of the former Aunt.

Evangaline has recently taken on the mantle of the Aunt, but the family is already guessing that her teenage niece Beryl will be the next one to wear the mantle.

The “Aunt Family” setting is rural modern fantasy, set in an unnamed town where the family’s reputation has, over the generations, gotten around. The magic is quiet, but nobody really doubts that it’s there.

The Aunt Family Landing Page is here.
