BOOK 2 - Further Along the Desert Path

A year on and nature and fantasy continue to conspire to bring the desert to life and to share its glories.

Along with Aundi, we learn about the roadrunner, javelinas, the desert cottontail and the summer monsoon season.

Nana as always, is on hand to give a fascinating presentation on the summer night sky and the constellations visible and... Daniel, her best friend... and so much more!

The director of the Darwin Gallery in the Northern Territory of Australia was sent on a quest. She had made it her personal search to find something appropriate. That is how she found herself in the Aboriginal town of Oenpelli.

An elderly Aboriginal man came to greet her as she pulled into the parking lot of the gallery. She had never seen him before.  He said he waited three days for her. She looked puzzled.

He told her a story about his mother hanging a wee basket around his neck as a child. The basket she said, carried "the cord that connected us".

He handed the little basket to the director and said it was to be given to the woman who would write her story... and bring the magic! 

BOOK 5 - A Faerie's Path to Walk

“Is she home yet?”  The Magic was busy organizing her midnight blue velvet bag.
A willowy voice replied, “No. But she is on her way. There is a rumor she is bringing someone with her. A guest!”

The Magic cast an eye one more time over the contents of her bag. She threw a few more handfuls of glitter into a corner of the bag to round out the contents.

The owner of the voice quietly withdrew as the Magic closed the door behind her leaving a tiny tell-tale trail of silvery glitter and stardust in her wake.

There was an air of excitement and anticipation as the Magic walked on to the veranda. She breathed in the scene before her and called to the elementals to make ready the yard and house.

Nana was coming home!


It was to an ancient land surrounded by a white cloud that Aundi and Daniel would venture with Aundi’s Nana. Aundi and Daniel knew there was a wonderful journey ahead of them as the days grew closer to their departure for New Zealand.

Nana said it was a land far, far away so both Aundi and Daniel were careful in their selections of what to bring, what to wear. Neither had travelled very far except within the US but this! This trip was to the other side of the world and to the Southern Hemisphere no less!
