Sidewynd

A short story. First in short story series, “Wyndside Stories”

Born of two worlds but important to neither, Sky Patel balances life between her beloved Edinburgh and its mirror in the faerie realm known as the Wynd. But everything changes with the retirement of her friend and mentor–and sole protector of Edinburgh’s Old Town.

Now, despite her best intentions, Sky finds her careful balance cracking. And she may be called to do more–and be more–than she could ever believe possible.

An urban fantasy short story about finding strength in what you love.

The Flat Above the Wynd

A short story. Second in short story series, “Wyndside Stories.”

As the sole Protector of Edinburgh, Sky Patel watches over Old Town, with its many hidden doorways to the faerie realm known as the Wynd.

But when past mistakes come back to haunt her, she begins to question the one man she thought she could always trust. The very man who gave her the role of Protector of Old Town in the first place.

All this with new, vulnerable charges to guard against the grasp of the Wynd.

Can Sky even protect herself…let alone anyone else?

Jess and her grandmother, Marie, return to the Isle of Skye for one purpose only: to lay Granmarie’s personal ghosts to rest.

But confronting old memories of her lost love sends Granmarie into an odd sort of reverie, one that soon catches Jess in its grip as well. Why do they both hear the same haunting melody?

And what secrets lie in the heart of the woodland behind the White Skye Inn?

In this short story, Celtic fairies, music, and ghosts collide, turning the bitter sweet.

Banoffee Pie and Black Pudding

Banoffee Pie and Black PuddingA short story.

If your heart lies in Ireland while your body pines in the USA, if you delight in quirky, madcap tales, and if you really love food, look no further.

“Banoffee Pie and Black Pudding” takes you on a dangerously magical romp through the kitchens of an Irish-style pub in Seattle, where everything that can go wrong, will.

And all because of one little, ancient artifact that chef Alyssa Granville maybe accidentally stole from Ireland. Who knew a Cauldron of Plenty could cause so much trouble?

(Not a) Fairy Tale

(Not a) Fairy TaleA short story.

Everyone knows high school grows drama like mold in a petri dish. Bullying? Check. Vicious rumor mill? Check. Draconian caste system? Check.

But at Rainy Valley High, one outcast girl starts believing an outrageous rumor about herself – and really weird stuff begins to happen.

But fairies don’t go to high school.

Do they?
