Lumina and the Goblin King
It is unwise to steal from goblins…
In order to save a dying silver kitten, a kind-hearted sprite makes a desperate decision. A choice that will change her life forever; because all debts come due eventually, and a debt to the Goblin King is no small thing.
Caught up in an age-old enmity, can she find a way to make good what she owes and still keep all she holds dear? Or will the price of her choice be more than she can pay? No matter the answer, some things are worth the cost, whatever it might be.
Do stories about fairies and goblins captivate you?
Personally, I love fairytales and folklore – both reading them and writing them. Lumina’s story is just such a tale, one of promises made and bargains kept, cursed kings and fairy queens, long-held animosity and love yet to be found.
So, if you are like me and enjoy fairytales and lore – or just incorrigible cats and mischievous phookas – then you will enjoy Lumina and the Goblin King.
The Broken Court
One story’s ending is just another’s beginning.
The Fairy Queen has fallen, doomed with a mortal heart, and the eld woman’s two dearest friends, the Lady of the Glade and the Goblin King, are now wed, whole and happy.
But even happy endings come with consequences, and for the eld woman, life has changed irrevocably. Mortality now hangs over her like a shroud, and her entire world has been turned on its head by a broken little boy newly returned from Faerie. Ill portents fill the air, the seasons themselves seem out of step, and it might be that she has been very, very much mistaken about a certain roguish phooka she thought she knew so well.
This is a story of found family and love finally realized; a thoughtful tale of magic and choices and the consequences that come with both. It is also a story about someone often seen in fairy tales, though rarely celebrated. She is called by many different names: henwife, spaewife, wise woman, witch… She is the herb woman who gives the heroine just what is needed to escape her fate. The old woman in the cottage at the edge of a dark wood who advises the hero on which path to take. She is the giver of good advice and the keeper of secret knowledge. The wise crone who guides the maiden, helping her win love and happiness. She is not the one who finds love and happiness herself… but why shouldn’t she be?
