Wiccan Haus Blog

WICCAN HAUS BLOG CLICK HERE For those of you who loved the Wiccan Haus the series now has a new blog and the second installment of the series comes out this Friday. I didn't even write it and I am more excited then if I had. A Man Worth Fighting For by Sara Daniel is AWESOME :) Shot by a member of his military team, Justin Lawson retreats to the Wiccan Haus.  Holly Walters refuses to accept her boyfriend's out-of-the-blue rejection without an explanation, even if getting the answers forces her to be trapped on a bizarre island for an entire week.  She's going to use every minute to work Justin out of her system once and for all.  Justin's body and spirit begin to heal under Holly's loving ministrations.  As she talks about never seeing each other again, he realizes he never wants to let her go.  But the rogue assassin who had gone after Justin before is after him again.  Before he can fight to make Holly believe in their love, he'll have to fight for both

Olivia has come to play

Where Do All The Ideas Come From? Sometimes I wonder where I get the ideas for stories, characters, and plots. It’s like a bottomless well inside my head where at least five or six ideas swirl together at a time. It can be overwhelming, and I find myself stretched between two, three, or more WIPs. I’ve always been this way. A loner as a child, I had plenty of playmates in the realm of my imagination, and that’s simply morphed into a writer with too many plotlines to keep track of. Maybe it’s remnants of past lives replaying themselves in suppressed memories, and I’m working out issues I once had. Maybe it’s some kind of mental illness like mania.
