  1. Wildwitch - Chapter I - The Tower

    An echoing crack came from below, shivering the stones of the tower. Vivaine’s fingers tightened on the wreath she was weaving, and a strand of holyvine snapped in her hands. The pattern frayed; vine, juniper, and white ribbon came loose. She could feel the power leach from it, and the dusty-green leaves turned brittle.

    It did not matter, she told herself. Neither a keepsafe charm nor the silent prayer to the Mother she had woven it with could help her now. But panic bubbled up in ...

  2. Prologue to My Novel Part 2

    CONTINUED FROM PART 1
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    “I admit, a name like “The Grays” is not really a worthy name for a people. We have little contact with them in fact, I couldn’t be more precise unless you would count encountering each other in the Esson regularly.

  5. Chapter 1 Scene 4 (reviosn) The House on Berry Bay.

    1811


    “Who did this boy? The woman demanded in Senegalese as she poured water over the young boy’s broken, bleeding skin.
    The child hesitated, “John.” The boy replied, wincing as the older woman began to spread a salve over his back.

The women started to chant softly waving her hands around wildly, the rhythmic ritualistic words calmed ...
