Book Birthday: To Tame a Wild Heart!

The newest book in my Zyne Legacy series is available today!  It’s also on sale for $.99 through June.

She wants her freedom.

Street hustler Audrey Taylor has carved a living out of society’s fringe using her supernatural abilities. Sleeping beneath the open skies and under the radar is all she’s ever needed. But when an ancient council of witches discovers her powers, Audrey is forced to submit to their control or end up stripped of her gifts and her memories. She knows better than to rely on or trust anyone and she’s never worked well with others, so it’s just her luck to be assigned the withdrawn and irritable falconer as her mentor. Even more disturbing is her desire to penetrate his brooding façade and uncover the passion brewing just under the surface.

He needs her surrender. 

Corvin Wright values the solace of his duties and finds peace alone among the birds trusted to his keeping, but the council no longer sees a use for his gifts. His sanctuary is in danger, unless he can earn his place by babysitting one of the fledgling witches brought to the Arcanum to train in the magical arts. That proves more daunting than expected when his novice turns out to be wilder and more broken than any creature he’s ever cared for. Her stubborn spirit and dangerous beauty challenge every ideal of the life he thought he wanted, and while Audrey wrestles against her captivity, Corvin searches for a way to tame her heart before she breaks his.

Fate has other plans.

2017 Intention: Lighting the Creative Fire

Photo Credit: Sheri Hall

This year, as compared to last, my holiday season was back to the normal crazy. I much prefer it the way we did it last year — a 5 day escape to the winter wonderland that is Whistler, BC. Instead, we hosted family in our new home this year, which was its own kind of special. Especially with the flu hitting us hard the week of Christmas. So, I didn’t have time to do my traditional solstice ritual and meditation. And yet it still came to me, as soon as I was nestled in bed on Solstice night. Whispered by the voice deep within, which I’ve admittedly been remiss at listening to lately. Continue reading “2017 Intention: Lighting the Creative Fire”

Summer Writing Update

coastline-169166_1920Where has the summer gone!?!?

I find myself asking this question yet again, despite the fact that every year I vow to make the most out of the sparkling gem that is a Pacific Northwest summer. They are brief, but breathtaking.

The last few months have been a whirlwind of moving, settling, socializing, and taking part in a beautiful wedding of a dear friend. My lover has been working OT like he’s saving for the end of the world, and I’ve been hoarding what time I have to myself to focus on my upcoming release and decompress.

Time to Shine

Happy Solstice!

Today is the longest day of the year, but this year, we get a special treat. This solstice coincides with the full moon (June Strawberry Moon). Not only should all that extra sunlight make for a very beautiful, deep amber colored full moon, but it also adds to the energetic potency of this celestial holiday.

This super-charged full moon takes place in Sagittarius, the sign of the archer. It invites us to set our sights on a target or goal (hopefully one of positive change and growth) and to let loose the arrow. To let the currents of energy from this solstice jettison us into a new way of being, a new truth to embody. Or it could just be an opportunity to check in with the path you are walking, and if satisfied, recharge and power forward. Become that comet, blazing across your own horizon.

Grounding through the Summer Buzz

daisies-1307650_1920I’m a summer child. My birthday is just one week before the solstice, and the summer is when I come fully alive. I love the heat. I love long, languid days and soft, humid nights. I love sunshine, and light, and bright colors. Someone once likened me to a butterfly; saying that I break out of a cocoon and become someone else as the sun takes hold. I’m naturally light and airy. The air signs dominate my astrological chart, and my Ayurvedic sign is Vata. Because of these things, the heat of summer is the perfect balance for me. But the constant INERTIA of the warmer, more active seasons can also be a huge drain on my energy.

Grounding is easy in the fall and winter months, when the seasons virtually call us to do that very thing. We stay inside, we take long baths or cozy up and read by a fire. We snuggle up in our little burrows and draw inward. In contrast, summer invites us to sprawl. We go-go-go until we run out of juice, and then rest a bit and do it all over again. But that can lead to feeling overwhelmed, underprepared, exhausted, or even just scatterbrained.

Here are my five simple tips that can help you feel instantly more grounded, even through the buzz of the summer season:

Winter Solstice Intention: Balance

sunset-tree

I’m a little late in posting this, but every year I set an intention for the coming solar year on the Winter Solstice. Last year, my intention was growth, and it was definitely a year of growth and expansion in many ways!  I have a tendency to beat myself up about not meeting all of my other secondary and tertiary goals – there are MANY – so I wanted to take a moment to publicly pat myself on the back before I dive into my intention for this year.
