Le Fay Series - Research Travel: Tintagel Castle

Tintagel castle is rumored to have been the birthplace of King Arthur. However, the castle's date doesn't quite match up to the legend's time period. Recent findings however reveal that there is indeed a matching time period building hidden there! How exciting if King Arthur really existed! The castle even has Merlin's Cave next to it. 

Tintagel is a super important location in the Le Fay Series. It's Morgan le Fay's home. I have taken so many pictures of Tintagel that I've broken it up into several posts: the sea, Merlin's Cave, and town.

This post will be focusing on the castle. Tintagel castle serves as an important inspiration for me as I build my own ancient ruins and castles in the Le Fay Series. (Hint: you'll see some coming up in the series.) As you can see, it's gorgeous! The mood is broody and dark with the epic sea crashing below the dark cliffs. It's certainly worthy of being a Game of Thrones setting. I love the stacked slates and how it's eroded and overgrown with time.


The beautiful sea below the castle:


A long hike to get to the castle:






Look at this wall! I love that little plant spilling out from the slates:


 View from between the slates. It must have taken forever to stack these:



Yay! This is so neat:


It's amazing that they made this archway with slates:


 What a gorgeous wall. I love the tufts of dry grass growing on the tops:




I hope you enjoyed the photos from Tintagel Castle!

Photos - Labyrinth Masquerade

I recently went to the Labyrinth Masquerade! I watched the movie as a kid and feel nostalgic about the world of labyrinth. Toby Froud was there (the baby in the movie--he now works in the film industry and a great artist like his parents). My colleague Karen Prell also talked a bit about her experience working on the film as a puppeteer. At the party there were a lot of impressive costumes. 

Here's me:


The Goblin King:


Khaleesi:


Dance Magic Dance! You can see a vid here.


 Crystal ball action! You can see the vid here!


I orded a poison peach at the bar:


Hope you enjoyed the photos!

CLAN and HENGE - Audiobook News

I opened up both of my books for auditions for about a month. Many talented actors auditioned for the roles and it was difficult to choose. Finally, I've chosen the actors for both books!

The LE FAY SERIES, starting with HENGE, will be narrated by actress Isla Lindsay. Believe me, choosing the actress to portray Morgan le Fay was no easy task! Isla captured my attention with her clear voice and emotional delivery of Morgan's lines. I'm very excited to work with such a talented actress to bring Morgan to life. I hope you'll enjoy her audio as much as I do! 





CLAN will be narrated by Jeff Hays. Jeff has an extensive track record producing quality audiobooks. He has an amazing clear, articulate voice--perfect for narrating CLAN. He also has great range which will be fantastic for portraying Twain, Buster, and Chad--plus the other clones of varying ages AND the computer voices. I think you guys are really going to love his narration and I couldn't be more excited that he will be bringing the world of CLAN to life.






Stay tuned for more news on the audiobook release date! Recording will be finished by autumn and I look forward to having both audiobooks available this year.

  -CLAN and the Le Fay Series now have an audiobook narrator!! More news on that this week, so come back and visit!

  -SWORD's book trailer launched!

  -Book 3 in the Le Fay Series was sent for line edit! So far it's on schedule for release this year!

  -I now have a Patreon page! I hope you'll consider becoming a patron! It comes with rewards and I hope patrons will feel like they're part of the team!
