Worldbuilding 101–Thea Style

I thought I’d start this first worldbuilding piece by something I did by accident when I wrote Dragon Bound. I built a world bigger than I could ever possibly hope to explore completely… which means that now, years l… Read More

An Introduction to Food and Magic

Personally, I’ve been thinking about this for a few years. Just imagine how important magic would be if you lived somewhere like the Elder Races universe, or in any of the fantasy-based worlds in popular culture. And t… Read More

The Elder Races Canvas

In a previous worldbuilding article, I talked about building a bigger canvas than I can possibly write about in one lifetime. For readers who are not familiar with my Elder Races universe, you can read a short piece by c… Read More

Blessing Food and Food as Medicine

My own personal journey of diagnosing food intolerances and developing a way of eating that is right for me has taught me that in the real world food is medicine. Eating the right foods for your body’s needs will help … Read More

World-Building for the American Witch trilogy

I want to share a bit about Everwood, the primary setting for my American Witch trilogy. In building this fictional town, I've had to map out the places of importance to the stories. It was a lot of fun to sketch out the… Read More

Magic and Fast Food Franchises?

When I think of magic, food, and the Elder Races universe—which is an alternative, present-day Earth—one of the questions I’ve asked myself is whether magic could be combined with fast food franchises. Think of it,… Read More

Drinks and Magic

So far, in the Elder Races, I’ve given several examples of how drinks and magic intermix. I’m writing this off the top of my head, but I *think* the first time was when I introduced the concept of a healing potion in… Read More

A morning in the life of… Aryal

Today sucked more than any other Monday, because, well, it was today.  It was not a past Monday and not future one, but right now, so she had to live it. First item of suckiness?  She forgot to get her dirty clothes to the laundry on F… Read More

Dragos Meets Stinkpot

As Pia got ready for bed, nerves tied her stomach up in knots. She wasn’t used to feeling nervous about going to bed. Excited, sure. Delighted, definitely. The intimate times she shared with Dragos in the bedroom were some of her happiest… Read More

Camping with Tiago

“Are you ready?” Niniane kept her deadpan face locked down tight, tight, tight, and gave Tiago her best cool stare. Playing poker against a Wyr as cagey as Tiago who knew her so well was quite the challenge. He could sense excitement… Read More

Offended Carling

The scar on Rune’s thigh particularly offended Carling. Normally she disposed of things that offended her with ruthless efficiency, but the scar was different. She couldn’t dispose of it. She couldn’t put it at a distance. She coul… Read More

Grace’s Inheritance

“I don’t want to go to school!” Chloe raged. She threw a couch pillow. Her small face was suffused with pink. “I do’wanna!” Max echoed his sister gleefully as he rampaged around the living room, chubby legs pumping. “I do… Read More

Puppy Problems

“I can’t find him anywhere.” As soon as Alice heard the nanny sob those words over the phone, she had a few quick words with her classroom assistant, then she grabbed her purse and rushed out of the room, leaving her assistant to h… Read More


“Did you know Neptune and Uranus may have oceans of liquid diamond?” Luis asked. Claudia murmured, without paying much attention, “Really?” “There may be diamond icebergs in the oceans,” he told her. “Man, if only the Dj… Read More
