Be careful what you wish for... Angelina already has a gift. She can sometimes make herself invisible, or at least cause people t to tice her. But the gillys, the semi-mythical little people who befriend her, can do so much more. Angelina is certain she'll attain true happiness if only her fairy friends will give her one of their magic stones. As in most fairy tales, the results are t as expected, but one can't really blame the gillys. Adventure, true love, a dastardly villain, broken hearts and a seed of hope This is a prequel to the story of Teeka, Angelina's daughter, in the Apprentice Healer series. The first chapter of To Heal a Broken Planet is included. Publication of that vel, and its sequel, Into the Unkwn, is pending.
Janice Clark, known to many as Grandma Jan was born in Corona, California, but has lived long enough in the state of Washington to grow webbed feet. She has been a dreamer of dreams and a teller of tales all her life. Once her children were grown, she began writing in earnest, producing a prolific profusion of poems, stories, songs, and even a few sermons. She and her brother share a home on partially wooded acreage in a rural area south of Puget Sound, where the morning fog drifting over the coastal hills could easily conceal dragons or any number of magical creatures. She does not own a cat, but there are often deer, squirrels, and rabbits in the yard, as well as the neighbor's free-range chickens and several cats who hunt the area.
