I started writing the Spirian series after a feeble attempt at writing my autobiography of which I entitled, This is Not the Life I Ordered! After several attempts at making that story worth reading, I finally decided to turn my tale into a fictional saga scattered with the wonderful people who have helped shape my life. Okay, I had some help with making this decision. One night, while Gregg and I and the kids were enjoying a bonfire in our back yard, we discussed my book. I believe it was my youngest son who said, “Mom, the story sucks.” Ah, the honesty of kids. We then began talking and laughing about possible scenes that would bring the story to life. The Spirian Saga was born.
Many people have asked me how much of this saga is true. Much of it is. Shanuk, the old man who reveals Skye’s ability to heal, is very real and remains much a part of my life today. Khalen’s personality and spirit portray my lifetime mate, Gregg. Maiyun, of course, is really Skye-Bear, my service dog. The character, Skye, is me, and Sam is a good friend of mine. The other characters come from my family and friends. Eve is my mother and Arcadie is my father. Case represents a very talented spiritual teacher who graciously took me under his wing when my direction was lost. Derrick is my late husband, Mark, who sadly died of lymphatic cancer.
Do Spirians really exist? That is something that you need to answer for yourself.
The first three books tell the story of Skye Taylor, a blind forty-five-year-old woman who believes her life is over until a tragic accident unfolds a world that only exists in fantasy myths. She discovers that she is a Spirian, a gifted soul; an Angel who lives among humans. This race is quickly facing extinction and is threatened by the dark forces of the Shadows, or the fallen Angels.
Khalen, a powerful and mysterious man who is destined to be Skye’s lifelong mate, is trusting of no one, especially a healer who comes from nowhere. It takes the wisdom and guidance from his father, Case, and grandfather, Shanuk, to see the truth of things and to face the fate that is destined to strengthen the Spirian race.
Together, through magical wars, and spiritual turbulence, Skye and Khalen discover that power belongs to those who wield it wisely. It is not the demonstration of strength to destroy, but to build and unite with the unfathomable balance in all things.
The saga continues to tell the story of other Spirians and their many adventures.
