Book of Esther: Inspection

Here is the beginning of Book of Esther (Book 6 of Waldmeer)!

INSPECTION

Chapter 1: Better or Worse

After six months of living in Store Creek with the cold weather, it was good to finally arrive at spring’s doorstep. Merlyn wondered if that was why Ben had decided to visit today. He said it was a rental inspection. But that was just a joke. At least, Merlyn hoped it was a joke. Although it was two years since their separation, they had been married for three years. Nothing needed inspecting. Continue reading “Book of Esther: Inspection”

Pittown: Out of the Pit

Here is the final part of Pittown (Book 5 of the Waldmeer Series).

Chapter 36: Barcodes of Life

In Store Creek

The winding country road between Store Creek and the highway was the best part of the two-hour drive to the city. Merlyn watched the morning light skip along the trees. The thin branch-shadows on the road looked like a long line of barcodes. The mysterious barcodes of life, thought Merlyn. She felt content because, after all, who could not be at peace on such a beautiful morning? She remembered an Edgar Cayce saying that Enid often quoted,

Happiness is your choice to make. How happy or how miserable do you want to be? Continue reading “Pittown: Out of the Pit”

Pittown (Book 5 of Waldmeer)

img_4413-1Pittown (Book 5 of Waldmeer) is now published. I have loved writing the series. When I started it, 4 years ago, I had never written fiction or had the inclination to do so. However, I have found that story-telling is a wonderful outlet for expressing all sorts of emotions and thoughts. I once listened to an author who said, “I feel sorry for people who don’t write because what do they do with all the stuff that happens to them?” In the end, I tell myself that if I come away from what I have written feeling encouraged then there is the possibility that others will too. It’s all about healing; every word of the 160,000 in the series. We are in this together; for better, for worse, for healing.

Pittown: Back to the Border

Here is the beginning of Part 3 of Pittown (Book 5 of Waldmeer Series). It’s time to go back to Borderfirma, and also back to some other things.

Chapter 29: Twenty Years

In Waldmeer
“It’s taken me twenty years to get back here,” said Rybert as he walked up and down Cypress Lane. “Twenty f***ing years,” he complained as if it had to be someone’s fault.

A few days ago, Rybert told himself that he was going to finish off what he started. What he had started, he wasn’t quite sure but, twenty years ago, his Aunt Charity told him that she had seen the gathering of two armies in her crystal ball (the sister-ball to Nina’s of the Great Valley in the Borderfirma Mountains). She also told him to go to the battle and that the ball didn’t make mistakes. He was to get there via the lane of Cypress trees which ran along the beachfront in Waldmeer.

Faith (Book 4 of Waldmeer) RECAP

Recently, we discovered that Pittown is Book 5 of the Waldmeer Series. Merlyn, Ben, and Tom of Pittown have connected with the towns of Waldmeer and Wurt Wurt Koort. After twenty years, we are reintroduced to Rybert (now 60) of Wurt Wurt Koort Tearooms and Faith-Amira’s son, Malik (now mid-40’s), of the Waldmeer Warriors. We do not know what happened to Faith-Amira (now 70) and Gabriel (now 60) in the inter-dimensional Borderfirma Mountains. In order to remind us of the events of Waldmeer and Borderfirma, here is a recap of Faith (Book 4 of Waldmeer).
