BARD (click to see book on Amazon.ca)

Bran finds out he has been accepted to the Bard campus his father once apprenticed at.  But its harvest time so his parents cannot go with him. 

As he says good-bye to his mother she places her hand on his shirt where a gemstone rests against his chest.  She hugs him and tells him he must return the gemstone to its rightful owner. 

Inside his father’s blacksmith shop he stares at a broken sword on a ledge above the entrance and realizes he is about to journey alone into unfamiliar lands.  Before Bran goes his father gives him a dagger made from a strange metal and warns him that traveling is more dangerous now.

This is an epic tale about music and magic; of meeting a giant, a demon, and traveling through a land ruled by an immortal emperor gone mad.  There are castles and battles, and most importantly, the quest to return the gemstone to its rightful owner.

Healing the Temple of the Soul

Cynthia Stevens hugs herself as she stands in front of the girl’s bathroom mirror at her high school. She’s wearing her father’s blue cardigan sweater and its warmth comforts her.  Over her thickening blonde hair sits a Blue Jays baseball cap her older brother Chad gave her after his last visit to The Valley Stream Home where she stayed for more than six months. On her left wrist dangles her little sister Faye’s gold bracelet. For a long moment she stares into the school’s mirror, no longer afraid to face herself.  There are still dark bags under her blue eyes and her cheeks–though fuller–still look too shallow. Her father, brother and sister are going to help her continue healing, but without Dr. Lyndon and the Girls’ Gang she doubts she would still be alive today.
