Once upon a time, a young child fell in love with the magic of words
It all began with a father's...spoken at bedtime, telling stories about adventures, pirates, and heroes who on occasion wore skirts. Waiting for the time that a brother was to be born, a mother read from the pages of books, while the child sat snugly by her side in the hospital bed. It was there, that the child learned to read the words on their own. So, the once upon a times became theirs to tell.
That child is me. And maybe, it's you too.

LADY OF FIRE
The Immortal Elements: Book I
The year is 1666, and for nearly twenty years, Lady Moireach MacRae has been living a sheltered life of privilege and luxury among the aristocratic society of London’s finest. But when her father demands she marry a man more than twice her age, she defies convention and rebels. She ventures into London’s lowly taverns to escape, to dance, and to feel free, and on that fateful night, a chance encounter with a stranger awakens something inside of her that will change her life forever.
Little Red & The Wolf
Every great story told begins with once upon a time, and so does hers. Meet Little Red, the girl who wandered off the path only for her story to weave its way to you. Every story has a villain they say, only who decides who is good and who is bad. Meet The Wolf, who awakens the possibilities of a girl whose name has been lost.
Let me offer another telling of the tale for in these pages lies a different truth. Illustrated. Written by a girl who used to run wild in the forests of her youth.
