So, I'm It! - Six Things about me

And since I'm so new at this, I forgot to mention six things that folks may not know about me.
#1 I love Canada. Why? Because my dad was born in Montreal and I love the accents - both French and English! Plus, I'm a big fan of Gordon Lightfoot.
#2 I don't have a driver's license. Grew up in Brooklyn and just never got around to it.
#3 I cry at commercials - and not just the sappy ones.
#4 I cry when I hear menus read - Huh? Yes, hearing a waiter lovingly describe the succulence of some exotic dish can make me weep and drool with anticipation
#5 I have a crush on Mariska Hargitay - Love the character she plays on Law & Order SVU -You may not know it but she's Jayne Mansfield's daughter. I'd kill for her cheekbones!
And #6 For the writers who may stumble upon this blog- I enjoy the editing process!

All done!

The Shimmering Flame

Jeanne Barrack

Terran Realm/Urban Fantasy

(hit the BUY BUTTON)
The battle begun over 3,000 years ago wages on...
Brigid Kawsantower travels to Ireland with her husband, Gabe, unaware of the true reason for their trip--or her true identity--until she comes to the little town of Carrigclarseach. There she learns of the Terrans, a clandestine group of supernatural beings who struggle to keep the earth in balance.
Brigid is a Terran Water and Fire Keeper--and the daughter of Dagda, a powerful Water Keeper, and at one time the leader of the Terrans of ancient Eire. Retreating before invading forces, he concealed Brigid's spirit until the day when her help is needed to defeat Nimhnach, a maniacal Destroyer, who seeks to gain eternal life and world domination. Can Brigid believe enough in her newfound powers to fulfill her destiny?
Gabe is a Terran Protector with a secret--can he protect Brigid from Nimhnach's plans and his own dark desires?
Irish archeologist, Ethan Clark, is a Terran Singer and Air Keeper. Ages ago he was Dagda's harper and right-hand man. And ages ago, Ethan was Brigid's lover. Should he try to regain her love?
Now they all must work together to vanquish Nimhnach before he unleashes a terror that will enslave the world and destroy Brigid's loves--past, present ... and future.
