Meet My Character Monday ~ Paige

Happy Monday ya’ll!

Today on Meet My Character Monday, I’m going to introduce you to Paige, the little girl Sarette meets at Visions.  I’m not going to blow the surprise so you get an excerpt again this week!






A giggle from near the counter startled me. I turned quickly, lost my footing and started to fall. I could always count on my clumsiness to make most days interesting. I grabbed the table to avoid a thunderous fall. Somehow I made contact with a crystal and cut my hand on the jagged points. Taking a deep breath, I looked around to see who might have witnessed my escapade. No one. “Great,” I said aloud and threw up my hands in a victory pose.  That’s when I heard another giggle. I turned slowly and this time I saw a child poking her head up from behind the counter.
“You’re funny,” she said with a little awe in her voice. “Your colors are so pretty. I’ve never seen them look like that.”
I wasn’t sure what she meant about colors; I was wearing earth tones. Feeling more embarrassed than anything, I nodded and smiled at the girl. She came around the counter. Standing before me was a strawberry-haired pixie, about five years old and as cute as could be, with big green luminescent eyes and pink cheeks. She had a silver band across her forehead that looked like a crown. She was holding a clear crystal wand with an amethyst spirit crystal on the end. A spirit crystal has a large quartz in the center, like a spire, and small crystals growing out of it. It’s shaped kind of like a pineapple, and this one was the most beautiful one I had ever seen. I’m not sure why a kid would have one, since they are very rare and are indigenous to the Magaliesberg Mountain region of South Africa. Thanks, Mom the geologist. I feel smart.
“Hello. That is a beautiful wand for a beautiful girl!”
“Thanks!” She grinned, twirled around, and said, “So, do you know what kind of the fair people you are yet?”


I hope you enjoyed meeting Paige!

Seventeen-year-old Sarette has always thought of her life as average, even a bit boring. She does well in school, has a loving mother and a loyal best friend, Mathew. Of course, she has her problems as well—cold Michigan winters, a long-lost father she knows nothing about, and the lack of a boyfriend. She also has the vague sensation that she is being watched by some unseen entity, but figures that means she’s average and crazy.

Nothing could be further from the truth . . .

Daearen isn’t much different than the human world.

Imagine a world where science is replaced with magic.




I hope all ya’ll have a great day and week!
