Guest Post
The Paranormal World of Forged in Dreams and Magick

The story line of Forged in Dreams and Magick evolved from my secret desire to

travel back in time to both the medieval Highlands and the land of ancient Picts,

but the mysteries behind the world were revealed to me during the drafting

and editing process. A thrilling aspect of writing as a “pantster” is experiencing

the journey through the eyes of the reader, wind blowing across my face, heart

racing. The rollercoaster car ratchets up to the peak before the adventure twists

and turns, taking on a life of its own.

Of course, since an enigmatic box induced Isobel’s time travel, I wondered right

alongside our heroine about the artifact’s mythology. My wanderlust heart

needed to unearth the origin and reason behind a relic with such power. As I

wrote, the very walls of Brodie Castle came to life, spilling forth her secrets . . .

to a degree. {laughs} I suppose in my world, walls can talk, in a manner of

Skorpius’s scene, which appears about 70% into the story, and only materialized

during the first edit of the draft, became an elemental part of the Forged in

Dreams and Magick world. During subsequent editing, I enriched all the chapters

to incorporate the added complexity of angels in an alternate heaven-like

dimension, deepening the meaning and struggles of Isobel’s journey.

Recently, I was asked by a reviewer if the presence of angels will lead the

Highland Legends series toward a religious or Christian slant. The answer is no.

The story is purely a paranormal, Highlander, action-adventure romance with

emotionally charged erotic sex scenes. The closest any of the novels in the series

will come to touching on religion or Christianity is when the characters question why, like we all do.
