Micha, King of Ancients, hoped the fighting between the realms would ease since the treat had been eliminated, yet the forest is filled with enemies who are not what they seem. They can be a plant, animal or even disguised as a friend.
While Micha battles Shifters, old enemies and himself, Jessa struggles to regain her life. A friend, in the spirit world, guides her through the adjustments of the truth, allowing her to uncover the Wars true beginning and of a man who will stop at nothing to obtain the True Power.
Micha must tread lightly as the Shadows reorganize the kingdom, demanding a union between Micha and Roselle. His only hope for happiness is for the curse Jessa cast upon herself to be broken by a Sorcerer, a man he did not trust. Will the King get his true Queen or will evil win?

The historical development of the human species has impacted our world with numerous changes, which have altered natural ecological formats beyond what could have been perceived during ancient human history. Humanity has inundated the Earth with such vastness it has caused disarray and loss of natural balance among what are viewed as lesser beings. The terrestrial non-human life forms have been challenged to adapt to the ubiquity of human imposed negative influences. Wolves have been an earthly presence for nearly a million years functioning the same as they do currently. Wolf and human character traits are amazingly similar. Ancient human hunter-gatherer civil design formed and operated exactly like we observe present day wolves. Tribes were small in number, socially connected, and completely reliant on unity and harmonious function installed as a means of survival. The wolf pack is a perfected uniform social order and these wolves are among the most adaptable planetary organisms. They function and survive in the harshest climates and remain a presence especially in high latitudes. I was inspired to create a story displaying the importance and necessity of predators like wolves to be allowed opportunity to continue as a viable species. Ecological balance is dependent on predatory animals as a means to gain longevity. Natural science has only recently truly understood the importance of wolves in the arctic and other remote regions of the world. It’s a hope as the human species confronts its future wolves will be included.

Until now there has been no magic, no adventure in Mary Bell’s life. Her small community in northern Saskatchewan is not a place where anything ever happens. Other than a heinous murder some thirty years ago, Buffalo Narrows has remained unscathed by notoriety. The population of Aboriginal people and of ancestors of European settlers, cohabit the tiny remote town and together they enjoy a peaceful, harmonious and simple but difficult existence.
But then on a beautiful summer day, in 2000, life as Mary Bell knows it, comes to a sudden halt.
A small Cessna hydroplane with five passengers on board crashes in the fields near Mary’s town and she is the only witness to a bloody and fatal tragedy.
Jack Holden, a lawyer and human rights activist enters the scene and turns Mary’s dreary life upside down. Not only does she fall in love, but a truth about her community, an ugly truth is revealed. An adventure which she dared only to dream about, is presented to her.
A gripping tale of romance and self-discovery mixed in with a relevant social issue.

Writing a Scene

Each scene is composed of a miniature story arc. Do you see how closely the steps mimic the story arc? Only Step 5 is different. Step 5 is a thought process for the author to undertake as each scene is written.
