Another post for the #WIPJoy Challenge! This time I have been asked to describe my main character(s). Yes, plural! ;) I have four main points of view in my first novel, Rise Of The Shadow Lord.
Highborn Sihara Dayel's deep tanned complexion compliments her brown eyes. She keeps her long dark wavy hair pulled up and out of her way. Physically she has never done a day of hard labor in her life. A fiery woman trying to constrain herself in the petite role which Elementian society has cast her to play, Sihara is willing to do just about anything to save her people.
Highborn Sebastien Vaugen's blonde hair nearly reaches his chin. His pale skin and bright blue eyes are common to Elementians of the Western Republic. You'll never find him without his top hat and ivory cane. Proud, opinionated, and fiercely protective of Sihara, Sebastien can make a formidable ally if you are on the same side.
Lord Jaden of House Calstein's most notable features are his emerald green eyes and sun-kissed skin; very few of of the Mineralites share these traits. He is genetically unaltered, and because of this he is reviled by his people as a Senken. Charming, calculating, and not afraid of danger, Jaden has a strong sense of morals and tries to hold the rest of his people to those same standards.
Awesome Possum has shoulder length white hair and copper eyes. As an Animalian Exile, he has anthropomorphic features such as a short white fur, a pointed nose, and a tail. Paranoid, foolish, and armed with little more than his quick wit and perchance for fainting, Awesome Possum stumbles his way through life trying to protect others from his curse.
Check out the introduction to the Rise Of The Shadow Lord here. Stay tuned for more updates!

The novelette Questions started out as a short story written in the spur of the moment.
I had come upon an article talking about the chemical, emotional and social reasons for kissing. I ran with the idea and wanted to create a backdrop that provided a good juxtaposition. So the short story was about a child who wanted to know why people kissed. I added three mothers for the child and left the child's gender mostly unknown. As the story progressed, you learned that this was a female humanoid child who was supposed to be emotionless and the mothers were Grays.
Later I took this short story and began to develop it into the novelette it is now. I did research on the Grays and the most common characteristic. I wondered what would hypothetically cause an alien to evolve in this manner and how could it survive?Read more
There are few things more wonderful on a cold winter morning than a warm cup of peppermint tea with a touch of honey and a splash of almond milk. There is something distinctly frosty about a peppermint tea that goes well with the moody, overcast...Read more
