Fiercely Female Warrior of the Heart

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

     We choose love. Or do we? Choosing the way of the romantic heart is to follow an unpredictable, crazy road of emotion; to invite bliss and pain in varying degrees. And when pain is the result, it’s usually in the the “worst-ever” catagory. No! Yes! No!

So I decided one morning, while ruminating on the state of my own heart and by the same token, current love interest, what a lot of guts it takes to keep ‘going back for more.’ Therefore, my reasoning continued, the way of the heart is surely that of a kind of warrior. I am a – what do I call it? I am a…Fiercely Female Warrior of the Heart!  Who vows to do no harm save to anyone besides myself! I am in hot pursuit of true love, careening down the path of ultimate mystery. A champion to the death of love happily ever after. Despite numerous failures. Miscalculations. Hits and misses and hurt that seemed endless.

More images flood in with these thoughts…I take a determined stance with an invisible sword of love. I swing at the moon, make my play, swallow stars of longing. I sing out a cry, calling, calling. The battle wages in the secret chambers of my own life. Something pure and sweet shakes and shifts in the earthquake of my making. I am trembling, purified.

I can be patient, even with a singing sword. The sun rises and sets, the moon waxes and wanes. Months go by yet still I search, eyes open, heart ready for the next, maybe the final, recognition of love well and truly. I can wait for you. I can keep the road open so you can find me; fearless and still full of hope.

Love Under the Leaves…Isn’t Just for Humans

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Autumn is dripping into wet reality and the paranormal creatures of Portland are stirring. Time for new hiding places!  Narrow, green eyes peer out from under soggy piles. Summer sanctuaries are exposed as boughs once laden with thick foliage hang bare. Creatures seeking anonymous quiet in the cityscape are everywhere if you simply open the eyes of wonderment and look.

They, like all of us, seek security, comfort, shelter from the storms and most of all, love. The mysterious dragons – blessed with a dual nature, long for passion. What couldn’t be found in the summer is surely hiding somewhere in the piles of red and orange leaves, the trees shimmering in autumn’s gold light, the full moon casting benevolence and tolerance.

Where are you, my gorgeous, beautiful ones? Can I help you? Kiss you? I, at least, will see you, whisper prayers for your safety and dream of your wings sparkling against azure skies.

Love in the Time of Paranormal Diversity

Saturday, April 16th, 2016

Coming in May! “Unbidden Dragon.” The latest saga of those lusty, gorgeous shape-shifting dragons called the Draca- a hot, fantastical story with a special, tasty twist.  In this book, our characters discover again why the shape-shifting dragons believe: It’s not a matter of WHO you love, it only matters THAT you love.

Meet Maeven, gorgeous, adventurous, dragon shape-shifter. She’s embarked on her coming of age quest, called the “Fieri.”  A journey which takes her, of course, to Portland Oregon, the city that strives to “Keep Portland Weird.” No problem for the Draca. Success in her once-in-a-lifetime urban adventure means everything – respect, honor and the bestowal of her full powers. Not to mention doing something vital for the survival of her species. Along the way, she discovers sizzling forbidden love and the true nature of her sexuality, along with the courage to face the consequences and reap the promised rewards.

Meet Frankie, an attractive, restless, gay woman living in Portland, who doesn’t understand at all why she can’t seem stop her slightly larcenous habits. She longs for her life to make more sense. Little does she know she’s about to find out she carries the DNA of an ancient, shape-shifting species. Oh, that explains so much. Especially when she accidentally shape-shifts into a dragon.

Do dragons love unconditionally? Does gender matter to the shape-shifters? Love is love, as they say. Sure, the dragons haven’t experienced a same-sex couple in six hundred years or so. That doesn’t stop the intensity of feelings between Maeven and Frankie. 

Paranormal implies, by its very term, diversity. Love doesn’t care what gender you are. Love in the time of paranormal diversity – a rich, exciting, sensual time. Maeven and Frankie’s story – coming soon!

Love and Spring Paranormalness

Saturday, May 2nd, 2015

Love and spring…the perfect paranormal combination. Isn’t love full of the unexplainable? The shock and wonder of discovery? Love tips us over the edge into another reality, surely this is ‘para-normal.’ Only part normal. Or, not at all. Once, firmly in the hold of newly in-love’s alternate reality, I sideswiped a car because I was so blissed out. Not connected quite to the road beneath the tires. I was barely in the car, floating somewhere in the clouds.

Let’s add spring to the equation. The lush bloom of green, the riot of pink and white cherry blossom petals. The scent of waking fragrance. Spring stirs our senses, wakens us from winter slumber into the desires and pleasures of rebirth. And instinctively we search for the special someone(s) to share our ripening feelings with. Then we plunge, fall, slide down the rabbit hole, out of normal. Into Love and Spring Paranormalness.

May you have a fabulous ride!
