Have you ever had one of those days where everything seemed strange? Well I have. My name is Elena Kelley. A few days ago, on my twenty-fifth birthday, a strange creature pulled me through an enchanted mirror, and onto a beach in the Fae Realm, where a Druid Sorcerer saved my life. Turns out, I’m the next in line to the Light Fae crown, and my fate is to unite the Dark Races.
Up until now, my entire life has been a lie. Oblivious to what I am, I’ve lived as a human, hidden from the supernatural world, cloaked by a Sorcerer’s spell. That spell is gone now, my powers are intensifying, and my life is in danger.
My new best friend is a Demon, and I’m meeting Vampires in bars. Somehow, I have to come to terms with what I am, and learn to fight in order to save myself as well as the ones I love.
Some odd phone calls; some well-timed phone calls; and a long, purposeful, life path put me in my career of serving developmentally disabled children and adults. My memoirs of that path and those years of service are compacted into this book. I needed a book like this when I entered the field to give me an idea of what to expect. It is my hope these experiences will be of help to parents, student-teachers, mentor teachers, and principals of this population of students.

Meyrick is born, a son, but not all is as it seems. He appears mundane—a human—and once he reaches his late teens, he will have to leave the village. Only wolves can remain when they reach adulthood.
But when Meyrick is seven, something happens—something wonderful and miraculous as well as frightening and downright evil—and Meyrick finds there is more to him than even he thought. With hunters on his trail, to rid the realm of a mundane such as him and to find the hidden, enchanted seal given to him by an angel upon his birth—a seal Meyrick is unware of. Meyrick must prove he is worthy to fight them off. There is help from The Ice Wizard—a young-looking but ancient being—and all the villagers as well as Meyrick’s dearest friend Marcus, little Cloe, and a surprising offer of solidarity from one of his foes, Nolan.
Will they defeat the hunters? Will the villagers accept the new Meyrick? But most of all, will Meyrick accept himself when he finds out what and who he truly is?

Success in life is an option. This book is a “manual” of behaviours, attitudes and procedures that you must develop if you want to have a successful life.
All that you are going to “drink” serves a single purpose: to live a more gratifying life with whom you love. And for that to happen, you have to transform yourself into that person, that leader, that idol that everyone admires and will want to follow.
Aware that much more is needed than reading a simple work to live a “great” life, I want with these pages to light the flame of “belief” that each of us has inside, so that the process of transformation occurs Of course, and that all “growing pains” be accepted as part of our “program” for a life of accomplishment.

Trust fund princess Keira’s life is about to implode. She’s just been kicked out of school—again. Mom and even Daddy have had it with her and have not only cancelled the lease on her absolutely adorable Greenwich Village pied a terre, they’re kicking her out of her home!
“No, Keira—you need to grow up and start doing something with your life. We’re at our wits end. You have to go live with your grandmother Pamela.”
“I don’t have a grandma named Pamela.”
“Yes, yes you do.”
And so… banished, banished to Canada of all places, Keira has to meet a grandmother she never knew existed. Who is…batshit crazy. Seriously.
The old biddy thinks she sees ghosts.
She wants Keira to call her ‘Nana’.
She’ll call her ‘GM’, but that’s it. After all, the old woman couldn’t be bothered to visit in all of her 23 years, and now she expects to be called ‘Nana’. No way, Jose. No damn way. And she’s as bossy as the General Manager of a store Keira worked at, so the best ‘Grand Mother’ will get is ‘GM’. She can take it or leave it—which is more choice than Keira’s had!
Eerie things start to happen to Keira almost as soon as she goes through the door of GM’s home. It starts with something as stupid as her clothes being folded and put away…when nobody’s there.
When someone invades her room and fools around with her digital camera and leaves strange pictures on it, things get weirder.
Then Keira starts having her own strange experiences. It’s as if she could read a person’s mind! But that’s crazy.

Nothing, and no one, is getting in his way–except that he didn’t prepare for her return, the girl who left him without a word.

And when she asks him for help, he’s forced to decide between his career and the woman he’s never stopped loving.
Rule #3: Don’t even think about falling in love again…

Now her top story as the “Helping Out!” reporter at dinky KWMT-TV in Sherman, Wyoming is getting a defective toaster repaired.
Tough, funny and determined, Elizabeth wrestles with isolation, keeping a professional edge, and an evolving self-image. Is Wyoming — the land of cattle, cowboys, tumbleweeds, and fewer than six people per square mile — her new home or a road to permanent obscurity?
Soon she’s in a battle of wills with ex-football player turned journalist Mike Paycik, who might see her as a handy rung on his career ladder or a romantic partner or both. And there’s the matter of a deputy sheriff—missing or murdered? Elizabeth finds herself investigating at the insistence of a girl who’s set on proving her father’s innocence. Not that enigmatic rancher Thomas Burrell makes investigating easy for an amateur detective.
But Elizabeth won’t fade to black without a fight, no matter how final some might want to make her SIGN OFF.
