…to Esperance.

Stone arch and green hills

 

A place of beauty, wonder, and, of course, Talent.

Excerpt from Viviane, First Lady.

“So, how were you planning to catch fish for dinner?” Viviane asked. “I don’t see any fishing gear anywhere, except for a bucket.”

“I was planning to coax them over to the bank and pick them out of the water,” he told her. Normally he wouldn’t use his talents for something this simple, but he thought it would be a good lesson for her at this stage of her training. Besides, with the need to bring everything in with them, he’d forgotten to bring any fishing tackle along.

“You’re kidding, aren’t you?” she asked, not sure what to believe.

“What kind of fish do you want for dinner,” he asked, ignoring the question. “Up here there are silverback, gold speck, rainbows, and cat’s eyes.”

Looking at him like she was humoring a lunatic, she said, “Well, since I have a choice, I really like gold speck.”

“Gold speck it is then. I think I’ll get a couple rainbows to go along with them.”

He took off his shoes and socks, rolled up his trousers, and stepped into the shallow water at the edge of the stream. Standing quite still, he mentally reached out gently to find the fish he wanted, and then pulled them toward his location by the bank. One by one he picked them up and put them in the bucket of water, three gold speck and two rainbows.

Black and whiteEver have one of those thoughts that just sits in the back of your mind and develops? That’s how I came up with the story Gambler’s Folly. A thought of what if?  How could it happen?
It all started with a song–South Coast, as sung by the Kingston Trio. (https://youtu.be/1psCACHj4as)
It begins with a man winning a woman in a card game. But that couldn’t happen today. Right?
Or could it?
And if so, how?
How, in this modern day and time, or even on into the future, could a man win his wife in a card game? What are the odds of that?
Hence, Gambler’s Folly. A pleasure world where the games are dangerous and the stakes are high.
Haven’t read Gambler’s Folly? It’s available on Amazon or at Bookstrand. Paperback or eBook!

Black and whiteWhen I began the Esperance series, I hadn’t envisioned this particular story. The book after Viviane, First Lady would continue the story of Jareth and Viviane, and then a book about the heir of Belfort.

But something about Morgan called to me. She needed for her story to be told. So I had to ask myself why she was in Brannach. Had she been chosen or had she volunteered to go back with First Lord Jareth during the Choosing?

What was her background? If a volunteer, why would she decide to leave her clan?

We know what happened a few short months after she arrived in Brannach. How did this affect her life?

And her new romance, James Ferguson. What was the story of his family? And what impact did this have on his interest in Morgan?

MORGAN–The Pixie and the Green Man is a story within a story. A little vignette built around someone who was originally only a minor character along a plot line.

But her story has affected me strongly. She is fragile, yet strong. Loving and caring, yet afraid to love.

Come with me to Esperance and meet Morgan and James, along with Jareth and Viviane and the Ferguson family. Meet Grandad with his wacky sense of humor. Find out what makes the Fergusons unique.

MORGAN–The Pixie and the Green Man.

Come to Esperance, for fantasy romance on a distant highland world.
