From the Author

A Story Born in Venezia

I moved to Italy in June 2015. I still spend a lot of time in Canada every year, but the bulk of the past 19 months has been spent in Venice and in a little village in the Italian Alps called Magras. As a writer, if you spend enough time in one place, some incarnation of it will find its way into your stories. Even with its problems (there are big issues with cruise ships and the sheer volume of visitors leaving a damaging footprint on Venice's fragile ecology), the spires and towers of Venezia imprinted on my heart in a way few cities can, and no surprise. 

The places Saxony's story unfolds are real, they are places that I saw with my own eyes and which still materialize around me when I close my eyes. Venice had a torrid relationship with fire for many years. In spite of being built on a lagoon and surrounded by water, Venezia is actually incredibly flammable, and suffered from several great fires which destroyed whole boroughs. These fires were the reason the world-famous glass-blowers were eventually moved entirely to the northern island of Murano-to keep their dangerous ovens away from the brick constructions. Venice's beautiful churches, museums, and massive heritage villas were built not from the stone they appear to made from (those are actually facades), but rather with lighter and more flammable materials, in order to prevent sinking. This learning inspired me to combine fire with Venice and weave them together in a magical way for an audience who loves urban fantasy and stories of transformation. 

My main character, Saxony, is just like any regular highschool girl, but her summer spent in Venice changes the course of her life forever as she becomes essentially a goddess. I hope my story surprises and delights you, please don't be shy to reach out and let me know what you thought. I have more stories planned for Saxony, so I invite you to come along for the ride!
