Scientific Breakthrough – The Giza Pyramids Channel Energy

I was right!

How crazy it is it that one of my scientific, er hem, ‘fictional’ theories in one of my novel series is correct? I’m still reeling around in my chair as I write this! As of tonight, there is actually scientific proof that the plot line is not entirely a work of fiction on my part, even though I started writing the book over three years ago!

In the first and second book in my Vaktare of All Realms series, I wrote that the main characters use the great pyramids (and other ancient structures), to channel energy up through the earth’s crust to perform Tru healings. Well, cue the trumpets because scientists have proven my book’s plot line to be true!

As reported by the Daily Mail just today, scientists have discovered that the famous Giza pyramid can concentrate electric and magnetic energy in its chambers and below its base, giving rise to distinct pockets of higher energy.

I guess that I’ll have to move the series from being a work of fantasy to being in the genre of science fiction now. Er hem. Please pardon my bad writer’s joke. I’m flying on cloud nine here!

And if any of you doubt me and don’t you dare suggest I’m just a copycat, I have copies dating back to 2015 and even further back for the first drafts on the novel. When one of my readers said that she felt my plot lines often had a premonition-like edge to them, apparently she wasn’t kidding!

The Mystery of the Bermuda Triangle

Ah, the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle… It’s a quagmire that even the best of scientists can’t explain. Some theorize that Atlantis lies beneath its waters. Others believe it is a haven for UFOs. But what are the known facts?

Also known as the Devil’s Triangle, the area covers about 500,000 square miles of ocean off the southeastern tip of Florida. When Christopher Columbus sailed through it on his first voyage, one night he reported that he saw a great flame of fire crashed into the sea.

Dozens of aircraft and boats have disappeared or sunk in its boundaries. Through the centuries, it has been theorized that thousands of disappearances have occurred. And while some of the wrecks have been found, the remains of the crews still remain startlingly missing.

The bizarre occurrences have even included the navy, sinking ships and causing bombers to become aimlessly lost. Flight 19, a group of 5 U.S. torpedo bombers, vanished in the Triangle in 1945. The rescue plane sent to look for them has also never been recovered. Other stories include the mystery of USS Cyclops, resulting in the largest non-combat loss of life in U.S. Navy’s history. The ship’s crew of 309 went missing in 1918. Even as recently as 2015, El Faro, a cargo ship with 33 on board, vanished in the area.

However despite the Triangle’s mystique, the U.S. Coast Guard has stated: “In a review of many aircraft and vessel losses in the area over the years, there has been nothing discovered that disappearance would indicate that casualties were the result of anything other that an physical causes. No extraordinary factors have ever been identified.”

But now the mystery may be close to being solved. Meteorologists claim that the reason for the occurrences could be unusual shaped hexagonal clouds in the area, creating 170 mph gusts of wind. Studying imagery from NASA, the scientists concluded that some of these clouds reach 20 to 55 miles wide. The waves inside these air bombs can also reach as high as 45 feet.

However, other meteorologists refute the claim, saying that the same such clouds appear in other places on earth, and without the strange disappearances. So perhaps it is still a mystery after all.

Personally, I prefer to think that my theory is correct and that inside the Bermuda Triangle lies the realm of the fairies: the Isle of Arestina. It has a portal system and a force shield to make it invisible to the human eye, so while my idea may be completely fiction. There’s no evidence to prove that it’s not the case! Either way, the Triangle still remains great fodder for fiction writers such as myself.

So what do you think causes the Devil’s Triangle to be such a mysterious place? Write me in the comments. I love hearing theories!

Sneak Peek At ‘Wings of Caligo’

Hello and happy Tuesday! Whew, what a week it has been so far! My internet was out all weekend, so I’m still catching up with all of you. But as soon as I got it back, I had to bring you what I had previously promised!

Here’s the exclusive preview from my upcoming novel ‘Wings of Caligo’, book one in my ‘Legends of Arestina’ series. I hope you enjoy it. I’ll be posting more teasers in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

Wings of Caligo The Prologue…

***

Nothing could have prepared me for this. My heart pounded in terror as the truth hit me. I was done for.

Blood curdling howls spilt the night as I tore through the dense forest undergrowth, trying to escape my fate. The death crawlers were right on my tail now, hunting me to the ground and screaming for my blood. I pushed my legs to go faster trying to outrun them, but it was too late.

I should have listened to my father when he said not to go out at night. I had snuck out here to the forest thinking I would be safe to watch the rising moon. How wrong I had been. Now I was running blindly in the dark for my life.

Tree branches hit me in the face as I tried to escape. The death crawlers’ lime green eyes were made for seeing in the dark. Mine couldn’t see two feet in front of me let alone see where they were. The beasts had come up behind me and attacked without warning. I knew they were chasing me down, but who knew how close they were to catching me. But then I didn’t need to question it anymore.

I cried out as a force slammed into my back, throwing me to the ground face down. I whimpered as its disgusting panting rang in my ears, sniffing up and down my neck. A low growl sounded as the rest of the pack caught up. They were all around me now, preparing for their meal.

Slowly lifting my head, I saw thirty sets of lips drawn back over their teeth. Poisonous green drool leaked down from their jaws, echoing the equally venomous toxin in their claws. Their leathery bald pink and black skin reflected the moonlight and they closed their wings, settling down after the chase. They thought they had caught me. They thought they were going to enjoy their meal. They were probably right.

I tried to sit up, but I was pushed down into the mud as the alpha dug its claws into my shoulder. I was too scared to cry out as they raked my arm, leaving bloody marks all the way down. This was the end of me and I knew it. I was good as dead. Within a minute, my body would go into shock from the poison and shut down. But oddly enough, that was the last move they made to kill me.

I sat up in confusion as the alpha moved off of my back and sat down, eyes narrowed with a growl. The rest echoed that noise sitting in unison, watching me with unnervingly glowing eyes.

It hit me then that they were waiting for me to die. Death crawlers never left their victims alive. So if they weren’t going to eat me, what were they planning to do? There was only one explanation. They had been sent to kill me, probably on the orders of the King of Caligo. That’s where they had come from; over there in that barren wasteland, across the Divide. They had come for the princessa; that being me.

But there was one snag in their plan. I didn’t seem to be dying. I looked down at my arm, seeing with shock that the marks on my skin were fading. In a few seconds, they were gone, leaving only jagged red scars in their place.

I gulped as another growl passed through the hunting pack, all watching me heal with unblinking eyes. They seemed just as astonished with my healing as I was. But the leader wasn’t done with me. It couldn’t fail its master by leaving me breathing. It stalked toward me, a low snarl on its jaw.

In that moment, my life flashed before my eyes. I had only lived seven short years, happily unaware of the danger that lurked in this forest. Being a garden fairy, my days were blissfully happy, playing with my friends and the creatures of the flowered fields. Those days were now to be cut short by my own stupidity of venturing out into the woods alone.

But also in that moment, a new power surged through me: a will to live. And into that will surged an ability I had never known.

I collapsed forward onto my elbows, my back erupting into mind-bending pain that had nothing to do with the enemies surrounding me. The pain seemed to be directed by a force inside my own mind that I had never experienced before. It screamed for vengeance and exploded out of my control.

My limbs started to elongate, fur sprouting from my hands. My bones jolted in new directions as I disappeared entirely, this new force taking over my being. An animalistic feeling gripped me and it was calling for the destruction of my enemies. The urge to shred them limb to limb took over and by the time I stood tall in this new four-footed form, it came to fruition.

The crawlers all stood stunned as I threw my head back into a raging howl, warning them of their oncoming demise.

I leapt onto the leader and tore off its wing, dragging my sharp claws across its throat. To the rest that didn’t run came similar fates, their neon purple blood splattering to the forest floor. They breathed their last breaths at my teeth and claws. I showed them no mercy. By the time I was done, they barely resembled the same creatures that had surrounded me moments before. Mangled corpses surrounded me, satisfying my inner animal and personally repulsing me.

I stared around, now coming back to my own mind, horrified by what I had done. Yes, those things had been planning to kill me, but I had all but shredded them into pieces. I backed up with a low whine, now hearing that it wasn’t like my own voice. It was that of a dog’s, high with fear.

Even stranger was the instinct to chase down the rest of the crawlers who had all but fled from my blood lust. What was I?! I was no garden fairy anymore; dark black fur over my skin and ears pointed up toward the sky. Looking back at myself, I saw a long black tail in the same color over my back. In my horror, snapping my jaws together, I realized what I was.

How had I become a wolf? A low whimper broke from my throat as I panicked. The world spun as I collapsed, my consciousness giving out to the fear. I disappeared into the void, mind recovering from the ordeal. But what I didn’t know was that this was only the beginning of my journey. Life as I knew it was about to end, the truth coming to light. Nothing would ever be the same.

***Can’t wait to have it?! Pre-order Wings of Caligo on Amazon to have it the instant it’s released! Here’s a little more about the novel:

My life is a lie

Imagine being born into a secret so important that entire kingdoms could come crumbling down and evil would reign if you told the truth. I may be a lumina fairy, but no one can know my secret: my true nature. I have to hide who I am every day of my life, even from the man I love. And worst of all, he’s supposed to be my enemy. Obscura faeries, lumina fairies; who am I supposed to be loyal to? My country or my heart? Danger is hiding at every corner and old adversaries threaten to tear everything I hold dear to pieces. It’s either truth or Dare, and my choice could devastate us all…

Wings of Caligo, book one in the Legends of Arestina Trilogy, is an action packed adventure filled with twists and turns that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat. Between black magic curses, wolf shifters, sword fights, and a romance that will endure until the end of time, readers will be transported to the Bermuda Triangle for a fairy tale twist that they will never forget.

Wings of Caligo touches on real life issues such as bullying, bigotry, racial boundaries, poaching, and human trafficking. Parental discretion is suggested for readers under the age of thirteen due to topics of sensitive nature.

At the Levitt Pavilion in Westport we heard some great Jazz…

Down in Bridgeport Connecticut we saw some awesome restorations of classic cars. I love incorporating classic vehicles into my stories and got some new ideas for books by looking at these. And who wouldn’t?! These are beautiful. To me they add a certain flavor that can add such detail to a story. In one of my upcoming books, Cursed, the character ‘Brin’ has a classic 1969 Pontiac GTO.

The Westport Library in Connecticut has a great new day-trip for families with youngsters who love to read. Check out the video below. It’s just behind the Westport Library…

Is There A Difference Between Fairies and Faeries?

Hello everyone!

Today I’m going to be answering a question that I get quite a bit about my Legends of Arestina series. What is the difference between a fairy and a faerie? Unlike what most people assume, there is quite a lot of difference actually.

In most cultures, fairies are considered the more amiable of the two creatures; whereas the faeries are known for their mal-intent. The word ‘fairy’ is derived from the Latin word ‘fatum’, which can mean ‘fate’. ‘Faerie’ is a word derived from the Gaelic ‘fear shidhe’, which translates to ‘man of the shee’. Some also say that there is a difference with the faeries being from the realm of the fae.

They also tend to differ in appearance with the fairies being of a more human, and usually more attractive appearance. The faeries, however, usually have an evil intent and are often portrayed as thieving creatures.

So in short:

Fairies – Good creatures.

Faeries – Evil or mischievous creatures.

I kept both definitions and myths in mind when I created my winged world on the mystical Island of Arestina. In that world, the distinction lies between the two fairy and faerie races who discriminate against each other: the lumina fairies vs. the obscura faeries. As the novel plays out between the two kinds of peoples, it begins to beg the question of individuality to decide your true nature, as opposed to what race (or species) you are.
