Long and Short Reviews Weekly Blog Challenge | 9.09.20

Hello Wednesday! It's that time of week for our blog challenge, hosted by the lovely people at Long and Short Reviews. This week's topic is: Topics I never get tired of talking about.

My simple answer is: Baking, my garden, yet most of all, my stories!

I love baking so much that I have a blog post each week called Friday Feast. With my garden, I'm always posting pictures or talking up a storm to my friends about what is happening in their gardens.

Now when it comes to my stories, I never tire of talking about a new plot, character, or new release! What is my new book? Magnar, The Wolves of Clan Sutherland, Book 1.

Here's a peek into the "Behind the Scenes" from Magnar ~

On my trip three years ago to the Orkney Islands, I discovered a vast landscape steeped in ancient legends, ruins, standing stones, and my fictional world of the Wolves of Clan Sutherland. They emerged quietly before I took my journey across the northern seas and entered with force once I arrived in Kirkwall.

Here is a rough draft of what I wrote in my travel journal after a long day on Orkney. These words resonated inside me and managed to become a central part of my prologue for Magnar.

“Though this warrior moves with stealth-like mastery, the veil of darkness cloaks him. The light of the full moon shimmers not from the steel of his weapon, but the silver within his eyes. He walks between the shadows of man and wolf.”
