Book and Home Front

So I have been thinking the last couple days about a new book idea. Actually I am thinking that I will make it a series of novelettes all based on the same story. Naturally it will be thrills and chills, because that is what I love to write.

On the home front, baby bird has kept me insanely busy. It now has 2 different types of chirps, one that says hold me, the other of course is feed me. He is now learning to perch a bit, and still waiting on tail feathers so it can learn to fly. It is still too early to tell, but we are thinking we may not be able to teach it to live on its’ own, so perhaps we have another family member. I must say, my heart melts when the little things cuddles up to me.

Today is the one year anniversary of me shattering my ankle and leg. Miss one step on the staircase and your life is changed forever. I am still not totally used to the titanium they installed, and the pain is still rather persistent. This gorgeous limp, well, I am just gonna have to live with it. I mean really, what can you expect when from the shin down it was twisted totally backwards! I still member my son freaking out over that and watching (though I told him to turn away) me twist my leg back around. To this day he thinks I am the biggest bad ass lmao!

Hope that all of you are having a wonderful day today!


This is the first installment in a series of books. The following are, in order, Water, Air, Fire and Spirit.

Follow Shayna and her two best friends through a world filled with magic. They all have the power to manipulate the elements and cast spells to help make their world a better place.

This is really a great series for any person who enjoys magic and creatures we’ve all dreamed of such as mermaids, fairies, and guardian angels.

You will find yourselves caring about the characters and the adventures they have. Don’t be surprised if you find yourselves with a totally different perspective on many creatures you meet along the way.

I would have to say that these are good for young adults and up. There are a few references to sex but the books do contain a lot of violence. Nothing outrageous, but if your a parent who closely watches what their kids read, be sure to look it over first.

Synopsis: After a demon apocalypse kills their parents and everyone they know, 17-year old Abby, her brother, Carter, and friend Max, flee their home to travel through what has become the Wastelands of America. When radio transmissions of a resistance offering shelter and safety cease, Abby is tempted to give in. Struggling to overcome life-threatening obstacles on their journey, Abby and her companions quickly discover there are much worse things that they could have ever imagined.

Ok, this is a fantastic young adult novel. Its originality in demons truly make it stand out. While these teens are fighting for their lives, the book still somehow manages to keep their innocence as well.

The characters are wonderful, I found myself rooting for them the whole way through the book. In some parts, I really did hold my breath, waiting for the outcome. The strength of family showed through in this tale, as well as the concept that sometimes, your family includes people you grew up with as well as people you meet throughout your journey in life.

Megan Duncan truly did a great job on this! I cannot wait to read the second part of this series.
