Happy Fairy God-Mother’s Day 2014- When writing a new story for my series, I always marvel at how whatever comes out of my brain seems to mimic my real life- even when I do not mean for that to happen.
I have been writing the next story for about a year now. If you have read the teasers on the site, you know the new lineage is called the Luci Lineage. They are the ones that teach the initiates about personal power by holding their own little “luci”, a pet-like light form they are given at the age of 13. This lineage creates all that is beauty in Aventurine. They can change their form at any moment both to disguise and to beguile. They have the power to change and so do you. There is no set rule for what is beautiful and every girl must choose her own way to look, feel, believe, and act in the world. These are your gifts and your powers. It has nothing to do with body shape or hair color. When you realize this is all up to you, you get busy making the best of what you’ve got.
I am ever-changing. My changes often feel like a crossing to a foreign land. That is why I have decided to call the next book “Her Crossing” to honor the ever-changing-ness of girls and women throughout their lives. This title was given to me by my brother years ago when our mother, Dora, was crossing the Atlantic Ocean on the Queen Mary to go to Europe and recorded her life story onto a small tape recorder to pass the time. Her stories of crossing from one place to another, both geographically and emotionally, stayed in my consciousness. Now I write the stories of the girls who will pass from Faeren to human, human to Faeren, girl to woman, woman to crone.
