Friends

Thumbnail_Friends_AlduraJaelyn, a city born and raised Healer, is assigned to a post in the ‘back of beyond’. With her twentieth natal-day approaching, Jaelyn is feeling lonely because Fenwood Valley is a close-knit community, and they don’t readily welcome strangers, especially not a young, inexperienced female. On her trudge home after helping deliver a baby, Jaelyn discovers unexpected friends when she is kidnapped.

Trivia Tidbit: This story is another which sprang from a writing prompt: “Someone important goes missing.” I had recently finished reading a story about a very powerful mage who seemed a complete air-head most of the time–until she (and yes it was a female mage) needed to act. I really enjoyed that character. I figured out the “missing person” but also wanted to include a character who appeared scatterbrained but wasn’t,  and I wanted a story about one of the simple pleasures and biggest treasures of life: Friendship.

Thumbnail_OTT_AlduraOn Treason’s Trail

Guardian Mage Glason Telmar disguises himself as a pauper to track a band of ruthless killers. During his investigation, he uncovers a sinister, deeply laid plot threatening all of the followers of the Twin Gods. Glason must face the menace alone, but will his magic and Guardian training prove sufficient to pass this ultimate test?

Trivia Tidbit:  The character Glason Telmar was created to be the “wise, older person” to go along with Clovis (in a story that is still steeping on a back-burner on the story-stove). Glason had other ideas about being a foil or minor character to his nephew. I certainly was NOT going to say no to an insistent Guardian Mage, so Glason  became the MC in his own tale.

Tears of a Seeress

 

If Father Tree dies so will all children and creatures of the Twin Goddess including the Njae. Arael’s Rest, the home of the Kalwyn Njae, has been under siege by the Halurdow for more than a generation. Added to the enemy, a plague has struck the Njae–a plague that is always fatal. If any Kalwyn Njae are to survive, they must flee their home. Seeress Illyani and her son, Glimrion, fight to save Father Tree and stop the Halurdow. Will they succeed?  

 

(Although set earlier in the time-line, I would recommend reading this immediately before or after reading Phaedra.)
