Newest Novella Released!

I’d like to take a moment to announce that the newest novella in my Portals Series has been released.

This one is titled Little Sprite and was a fun story to write.

I don’t usually do this, but I wanted to explain where one of the ideas of this story came from, since I cannot take the credit for the story all by myself.

When I was in third grade, I was good friends with two other children named Kimmie and Bethany. All of us had parents in the military, so I have long lost track of them.

The three of us, along with maybe a few others, used to play a game called “Flying Unicorns” out in the field of our elementary school before school and during recesses. We each made up a unicorn name and a princess name for ourselves. The bad guy was the Lord of the Shadows and we had to fight him.

We played this game for a good portion of the school year. But like all childhood memories, it became lost in my head as other memories have filled it over the years.

About five years ago, I remembered the game we played and began to write a story about my flying unicorn, Golden Girl, and my princess, Goldie (I was creative as a child, but not THAT creative). I got a small story written, but it went no where. So I filed it away as I did all my other stories that went no where. Since I almost never throw away rough drafts until I have expanded on them, this one sat.

While working on my Portals Series, I started looking through my “no where” files. I was actually looking for a list of names I had come up long ago with for a different story, but found the half-done story on my Princess Goldie and her unicorn Golden Girl. I realized with a bit of tweaking, it could become part of my Portals Series, since I found the perfect hero for the story.

Thus, Little Sprite was created. The story I had written is now the first chapter.

One of my beta readers found it to be a cute and refreshing read. So I hope you enjoy it!

This can be read as a standalone, but there are references to some of the previous works in the series as well.

As one of the smallest creatures in the Realm of Original Magic, Briar of the Greenways Clan has grown up thinking she is one of the weakest as well. Haunted by the nightmares of the past, she remains stuck in the mindset that she is just a little creature given to flights of fancy. But when her little brother accidentally drags her along on one of the Portal Seeker’s adventures to a new realm full of magical unicorns and colorful beings, Briar must learn to face her fears and summon her own brand of magic. Can she truly realize that she is more than just a little sprite?
