If you read my romance novels, you’ll see each one has the element of a magical, mystical presence.
In the MacNicol Clan Through Time series it’s a faerie, in Dreaming In Moonlight it’s a wizard, and in my gilded age Until series it’s a man I call the Maestro. For me, the presence of these magical characters represent the presence of the magical and mystical connections that often pass through our lives, and just as often, go unnoticed.
Some call it consequence, some call it fate or destiny, and some call it miracles.
It’s the experience of meeting the right person at the right time, or finding the right book that speaks to your heart, or finding the one true friend that supports you through what seems to be the darkest moment of your life.
In MacNicol Clan Through Time series, a powerful faerie, Mozell, has a habit of sending my characters through time to either meet their soulmate, or to confront their past . . . as in a past life, perhaps.
In Dreaming In Moonlight, the wizard Tazire, grants the demands of a warrior prince only for the prince to discover that what he thought would be the blessing of a lifetime turns out to be an unexpected curse. (Never fear, there’s always a way to right a wrong.)
And in my gilded age Until series set in New York, Jules Vanderzeit, the Maestro, sends people whipping through time, supposedly to be his time couriers. What’s far more interesting are the encounters they make along the way. Sometimes they meet their soulmate, and sometimes they get to confront unresolved issues from a past life. All very exciting, and sometimes, fun.
If you’re into modern spirituality or ancient metaphysical magic, hopefully these story lines will appeal to you. For me they represent the great possibilities of living lives after lives, confronting your karma, and best of all, finding or reconnecting with your soulmate. These are romance stories, after all, and you can pretty much count on a happily ever after . . . at least for now.
My greatest delight is when my readers want to discuss the meaning behind these characters, and search for greater insight into the journey for my hero and heroine. And sometimes, my readers just like to enjoy the story, without digging deeper. To each their own. For me, writing these stories provides me with an opportunity to explore the possibilities of reincarnation, reuniting with our soulmate, meeting our destiny, and best of all, asking the question; what if.
Regardless of how you may view my stories, my greatest hope is that they will entertain, enlighten, and uplift your heart and soul.
