London Calling!

I love London.  I am introducing the Fairy Godmother Academy books in the UK this week. They really get fairies here. Write to me if you are a fan in the UK.

Check out this Wisdom on a blackboard at Neal Courtyard.

There are many magical places on earth. London was calling me and I answered! Where do you find magic?

Jan Bozarth Talks About the Kalis Dance

I created the Kalis Dance in Kerka’s Book because I love dance and wanted girls to have something that made them feel powerful AND graceful. The beautiful handmade sticks are like light sabers for girls. Check it out!

Faeriecon West: Day 1 – Suspending Disbelief

Something happens when a bunch of humans get together to celebrate the imagination. Beauty and humor come pouring through. At this conference it is easy to meet those who have no trouble suspending disbelief- letting go of “so called reality” to soar freely through other worlds. Imagination-It’s a worthy destination that some people call home. I interviewed one such person today. Toby Froud is at home in the fairy world. He’s a beacon. Follow!!!

Announcing Book 5 : Sumi’s Book

Sumi Hara loves fashion. She always looks beautiful, and always wears the perfect outfit. When she arrives in Aventurine, Sumi is thrilled to learn that she’s a shape-shifter.

Unfortunately, she’s not very good at shape-shifting yet, so she’s given a guide named Kano—who’s distractingly gorgeous in his human form. But right away they get off on the wrong foot; Sumi can’t understand why this boy doesn’t seem to like her. When they find out that an evil fairy queen holds the final mirror shard needed to complete their mission, Sumi will have to discover what true beauty and perfection are, or she could lose Kano and her chance to become a fairy godmother.
