URWELT CHRONICLES: My Children’s Book Series
The Lioness of Brumley Hall (under revision and renamed The Lioness and the Faery Queen) the first book in the Urwelt Chronicles series, is a new family oriented action fantasy adventure which introduces you to the magically gifted family pushing the limits of their powers to battle against dark magical forces with surprising results. The Urwelt Chronicles book series, written for mature middle grade and tween readers, ages ten to fourteen, is also an enjoyable read for their “boomer” grandparents.
The Lioness (Gran) oversees the world of Brumley Hall and its magic, mystery and mayhem set in north Wales. Brumley Hall is a most unusual manor house hotel run by quirky adults trying to keep the resident children with magical abilities unsuccessfully under control. It’s packed with danger, humor and enough magical adventures for all (way too much, as Gran would say). The second installment, The Lioness and the Faery Enchantment, is well underway and will be published next year. For more information on this series and related content (faeries, Wales, magic), follow me to keep current on posts at: http://urweltchronicles.com
DAMN DELICIOUS DESSERTS: Cakes, Puddings and Pies—Not Too Sweet, Not Too Rich, Just Right!
My grandmother and mother made old fashion “eat the last crumb” cakes and bowl licking custards when I was growing up. I rediscovered them when I merged the boxes of recipes into two large boxes after they passed on to dessert heaven. I was, naturally drawn to the desserts I enjoyed as a child and started baking them again for family and friends. The rave reviews encouraged me to add this blog of my favorites after being asked for the recipes over and over again. http://damndeliciousdessertsblog.wordpress.com
Mythic Mooring: Symbolism To Anchor Our Lives
I have redesigned the website/blog (formerly known as Augusta’s Musings) to suit the nature of my interests in mythological symbolism and contemporary politics. This is the essence of the nonfiction book I am currently researching on Arthurian legend and Celtic symbolism titled, The Sword and the Scabbard: The Political and Spiritual Ethos of Arthurian Legend. This website, Mythic Musings, focuses on mythology, Jungian archetypes and symbolism in political and nonpolitical contexts. It pays particular attention to the symbols of the sword and the scabbard (stone) and the yin/yang interaction found in the divine feminine and masculine symbolism. These symbols also find their way into my fictional children’s book series, the Urweltchronicles (see my other website http://urweltchronicles.com) featuring the first book in the series, The Lioness and the Faery Queen, and related content (faeries, music, Wales, magic).
I also wanted to provide more goodies to this site that looked at Jungian archetypes found in contemporary political events, and mythological symbolism and archetypes in general that I imported from my now defunct Politicalmythos website. Below is an introductory preview and the imported posts with more to come in 2017! http://www.mythicmooring.com.
