Fairy Rings

Fairy Ring photo from ugaurbanag.com

Here is a really great example of a fairy ring that I found online from ugaurbanag.com. It is bigger than the one I saw, but I love that I was able to experience one in person!!!

Fairy Rings, to me, are quite magical. Many ideas spring to mind when I see them; I picture an enchanted council sitting among the tops of the mushroom fruit, or an elven-magical porthole and even a fairy dance procession. There is also some really interesting science behind them. I hope you too get the chance to see one on an adventure in the forest or a grassy meadow. Enjoy your research into these whimsical rings and look for them in Book Two of The Dragon Birthmark Series!

Happy October!

Happy October!

This morning the air is crisp and tinged with the smell of fallen leaves.  It makes me want to curl up with my laptop and write.  Book two has swirled around my brain for some time now, and it is time to pen it down.  I hope you all are as excited as I am.

I would love to hear from any readers of the first book, The Dragon Birthmark: World in the Shadows. If you have any ideas or suggestions for the second book, please post below.  Think outside of the box. What sort of magical or enchanted whimsy can you dream up?  Where should this adventure take our friends this time?  What sort of danger lurks in the shadows?

Happy Creating Everyone!
