    About The Scrivener's Tale:

    In the bookshops and cafes of present-day Paris, ex-psychologist Gabe Figaret is trying to put his shattered life back together. When another doctor, Reynard, asks him to help with a delusional female patient, Gabe is reluctant... until he meets her. At first Gabe thinks the woman, Angelina, is merely terrified of Reynard, but he quickly discovers she is not quite what she seems.

    As his relationship with Angelina deepens, Gabe's life in Paris becomes increasingly unstable. He senses a presence watching and following every move he makes, and yet he finds Angelina increasingly irresistible.

    When Angelina tells Gabe he must kill her and flee to a place she calls Morgravia, he is horrified. But then Angelina shows him that the cathedral he has dreamt about since childhood is real and exists in Morgravia.

    A special 10th Anniversary edition of her first fantasy book, Myrren's Gift, will be released in December!

ARIES: This is a saint vs. sinner full moon activating your intense and immediate desires to get what you want, NOW. The key is to lighten up on Self judgment, no matter what your thoughts, and take a moment of introspection. The journey can be just as profound directed in as out. Hint: Be your own best cheering squad!

TAURUS: Suddenly there is suspicion around an agreement or commitment made some months ago. You thought it was settled, all in harmony but a glitch appears and the first reaction is to point the finger. Deep breaths! Allow your intuition to surface and have a say. Words and evidence are not relevant here. Hint: Trust the uncertainty. Completely!

GEMINI: Work/daily routine takes on a new face, one of intensity and dreamy adventure. This is not a time to look at the facts or focus over long on ‘reality.’ You gain much more by exploring your dreams, meditating on new ideas and letting fantasies play out in your mind. Hint: If you had a guardian angel, what would you say it them?

CANCER: The call of your inner child can not be ignored. This is a time to skip, sing, dance and play. Spend time with friends. Take a risk. Speculate. Come out of your shell and enjoy the comfort and security of the people who love you. Hint: There can be no adventure with friends if you don’t reach out your hand. Connection begins with you.

LEO: This is the perfect full moon to spend intimate time one-on-one or with a select group of likeminded others. Entertain in your home even if it’s only an afternoon cuppa. By sharing the ritual of food and drink, you awaken your ancient ties to clan, the Earth and Love. Hint: Who you invite into your life now will help you in quantum leaps!

VIRGO: The generosity of a sibling or someone ‘brethren like’ will astound you. This is a time to open the lines of communication, especially to those who have been cut off. The reasons are in the past, along with the transgression. Who wouldn’t deserve another chance? Hint: The more you release the ‘charge’ the more abundance flows. Let go!

LIBRA: Focusing on money per say isn’t going to bring near the insights unless you understand what $$$ means to YOU. It represents something, an idea, a feeling, a point of ground to stand on. Comprehend that, and you will open the floodgates. Hint: Whatever you think ‘it’ is, look deeper. Let your intuition penetrate this facade!

SCORPIO: Tune into this full moon and you can generate a LOT of power. That’s energy to heal, to understand, to release judgment, to take action. How to tune in? Do something physical, intimate, challenging. Put yourself on the edge. Take a risk with your emotions. Hint: Letting go of anger means deciding to be at peace. Always, you get to decide!

SAGITTARIUS: You may feel a profound sense of privacy this full moon. Instead of reaching out to others and immersing in go go go, much insight is gained by spending a wee bit of time on your own. Discover the beauty in solitary moments. Hint: As you reemerge from your tower of magic and wisdom, the right-for-you crowd gathers, supports.

CAPRICORN: What do you wish for? Goals? Dreams? Get to the bottom of what you want and why you want it. As long as your aims belong to YOU, they are completely reachable. But if they are inherited from other’s expectations . . . Hint: Ask where you would be, who with and doing what, if you could snap your fingers and make it so!

AQUARIUS: If you have to make tough decision that require a ruthless edge or at least a blazing honesty, this is the time to do so. Wielding your power with integrity gets you everywhere! Hint: You may have to deal with or make arrangements for a parent. In this area, sensitivity, intuition and compassion will get you further down the path.

PISCES: The full moon has you longing for distant places, those in other lands, realms of the mind or even the past. In your travels, identify the feeling it is you are searching for. It’s not the land or the realm or the event; it’s a part of you. (what’s the common denominator in all the musings?) Hint: When you know what the feeling is, you are free.
