What I’m Currently Working On

I’ve finished the final draft of book one in my Witches of Griffin series.  I planned to title the book Isis’s Order, since the sisters are following the orders of the goddess Isis.  But after my endless research, I realized you can no longer type in the goddess’s name without getting pages and pages about the terrorist group.  That being said, a title change was definitely in order.  It’s now called Divine Legacy, which I like better.

Here’s the intro to the story.

Descendants of the first supreme witch, the great Queen, Cleopatra of Egypt, have returned to the earth plane.  Possessing illuminating wisdom and the ability to manipulate energy in various spiritual planes and dimensions, the sisters are new to their craft and under the guidance of the goddess Isis.

Great care was taken to bring about the triplet birth of the enlightened ones.  Enormous foresight and collaboration was necessary to make the three of them balanced and powerful when united.  Their looks, personality, and magical abilities differ, allowing them to become powerful conduits of universal energy.

Kira Griffin was gifted with hair as red as the fires that destroyed the great Library of Alexandria, where the most complete collection of ancient literature ever assembled, including the sacred scrolls of Isis, were destroyed by fiery flames.  Skye’s hair was black as a raven’s wing, representing the life-giving silt left by the river Nile, symbolizing fertility, new life, and resurrection.  And Regina was given golden blond hair to represent the flesh of the gods and goddesses, symbolizing eternity and indestructibility.  Their blue eyes represent the color of the heavens and hold true to the supreme Cleopatra’s eyes.  The higher realms hold great hope for the Griffin.

There is a lot of symbolism in this story as it delves into the nature of energy, how to utilize it, and how to overcome tragedies and pitfalls that occur on the earthly plane.  Life is a journey of learning and the sisters, like the majority of us, have much to learn.  The afterlife is referred to often in the story and is taken from years of personal research.  The descriptions and details of the afterlife are based upon people who have experienced past life regressions or near death experiences.  The information regarding the healing light of Reiki, healing crystals, tinctures, etc. is based upon my own experience and knowledge, as I am a Reiki practitioner.

Throughout the book, the Griffin sisters strive to maintain a positive mindset, to manifest what they need, and to accept things they can’t change.  Through the universal life force of energy that surrounds us, the sisters set out to make great changes in the world around them.  Of course they have some whacky relatives to assist them on their journey, as well as spiritual friends guiding their way.  Their life seems a constant battle against evil and yet the Griffin sisters always find time for the most powerful energy in the universe…love.

I have two books I want to get to the editor and many more in the works.  I want to make sure book two of the Witches of Griffin series, blends in seamlessly to book one, so I will probably work on book two, before sending book one to the editor.

My next release is a Regency Historical Cinderella story, which I love.  It’s called The Wallflower’s Godmother.

Here’s the blurb:

In any Cinderella story, the damsel must find Prince Charming, but what if the man destined to be yours is not the least bit charming?

Working like a scullery maid in her family’s home is no picnic for Johanna Cavanagh.  When her godmother sails into her life to remove her from such hardship, Johanna sees this as a gift from heaven. She’s immediately swept into a new life filled with lessons in husband catching.  She assumes her godmother’s quirky behavior of speaking to heavenly spirits can only aid her in this endeavor, but…

When the angels encourage Johanna to find favor with the rude and off-putting Earl of Dunford, Johanna believes her future bleak.

Eli Benton, the Earl of Dunford, who nearly drowned in quicksand, is now considering it time to reassess his plans for a future and finds himself beset by a pretty guest of his neighbor’s.  Miss Johanna Cavanagh furiously accuses him of allowing his staff to abuse animals, but if that isn’t enough, this same woman returns back into his life when his daughter is returned to him, causing Miss Johanna to somehow feel it her duty to make sure he treats his child correctly.  Eli finds her meddlesome.

If this is a match made in heaven, why is everyone getting in the way, including Eli and Johanna's own awkward efforts at understanding relationship building.  Amidst Eli’s brother possibly being suspected for murder and kidnapping, a sister whose ice princess image must be melted, and a grief stricken five-year-old, Johanna and Eli keep pursuing love.

The Wallflower’s Godmother is a Regency Historical Romance with spiritual elements.  It is Book One in the Surrounded by Angels series.

I will let you know when this one nears release.  I’m thinking March of 2015.
