Just Like Magic.

I've always believed in the idea of magic. And sure, the word "Magic" instantly creates a specific image in your head, but that's an image specific to you, not to me. For myself, magic means a world of endless possibilities, stories yet to be untold, long-kept secrets tucked into the pages of history, whispers in the wind, the coziness that overcomes me when it rains, the comfort of a cup of coffee first thing in the morning, snuggling under a quilt by the fireplace, that chi

The Poet In Me.

When Liz finds a poem she wrote in 10th grade, she can't help but think it could make one awesome country music song. Taylor Swift could never, folks. Plus, Below Deck, RHONJ, RHOD and RHONY updates! Need more of the poem? See below: "Tired" by Liz Rau. I’m tired of the violence All the long drawn-out wars I’m tired of all the nudities All the sex without love All these abandoned children All these teenage parents in Hell All these piling tragedies All these broken families T

Day 16 - The Tale of Vasilisa the Beautiful

The tale of Vasilisa the Beautiful begins by introducing the character of Vasilisa, whose mother dies when she was still young. Like the story of Cinderella, Vasilisa’s widowed father marries another woman, who has two daughters of her own. Vasilisa’s step-mother and step-sisters mistreat her by giving her lots of work to do. Fortunately, whilst on her deathbed, Vasilisa’s mother gives her daughter a magical doll, who helps the maiden to accomplish these tasks. One day, howev

Day 15 - Maggie's Wall

Inspiration can come from anywhere. During my research of witches from around the world, I discovered Maggie's Wall. This is why I developed the character of Maggie Balfour in my novel, Magick. Balfour was a popular name among those hunted for witchcraft in Scotland, and no one knows who the "Maggie" of this dedication truly is. Thus, I gave dear Maggie a story - for no one's tale should end as an unknown finish. Outside of a small village of Dunning, nestled in the former pa


Angele de la Barthe supposedly had sexual intercourse with the Devil, (as the story goes), an affair which produced a son, a sort of half-man, wolf-snake beast who fed on babies. Angele de la Barthe was a wealthy noble woman who lived between 1230 and 1275 in Toulouse, France. She was also an adept of Catharism, a Christian dualist movement deemed heretical by the Church. She was accused of witchcraft after a series of babies mysteriously disappeared in the area. She confesse

will-o'-the-wisp - Day 30

A jack-o'-lantern (or jack o'lantern) is a carved pumpkin, turnip, or other root vegetable lantern, associated with the holiday of Halloween and named after the phenomenon of a strange light flickering over peat bogs, called will-o'-the-wisp or jack-o'-lantern. Its name is also tied to the Irish legend of Stingy Jack, a drunkard who bargains with Satan and is doomed to roam the Earth with only a hollowed turnip to light his way. Jack-o'-lantern's are a yearly Halloween tradit

Writer's Block

The best tip I've every been given when it comes to the infamous "writer's block" is to work on my story in a another manner. Research, cover design and even watching Youtube videos of places I like to set my stories in are keys to breaking my creative block. Research is my favorite. No matter how much I investigate, the paths of history never seem to end. And I can easily dip back into an inspiring storyline. Take Betty Parris for example. Betty was the nine-year-old girl wh
