Snippet Sunday

This weekend I’m participating in Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors! My first snippet is going to be from Meanmna: Book One of the Daearen Realms. Sarette was just frightened into fainting and woke up in a dream to find Elwin there. Their first meeting didn’t exactly go smoothly…


…Why do I keep looking at his lips?

Elwin laughed again,  “If you would like me to stop hearing what you’re thinking, you should probably wake up and talk to me. I’m the guy sitting in your back seat.”

He winked, disappeared, and I started yelling to an empty space, “My backseat? What, oh wait that’s right; there’s a telepathic axe murderer sociopath sitting in the backseat of my car, waiting to chop me into little pieces. I’d rather stay asleep for that! Thank you very much. Get it over with already; I’m already crazy. Just finish me off!”


meanmnasmallSynopsis: Meanmna: Book One of the Daearen Realms 
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.
