Shaman to the Stars

10:09 PM

As a shaman, I don't believe in coincidences. When concurrences occur, I consider them to be signs, either warnings, or portents of good things to come. So when I was asked to perform a shamanic journey with British international television and movie star, Anna Friel, as edits wrapped for SPELL FIRE, Book 3: The Teen Wytche Saga, I took it as a good sign.

An hour before sunset, a cold breeze cut across the sand and rock labyrinth, raising gooseflesh beneath my long purple dress. My friend Melissa drummed a slow, steady heartbeat from the center of the labyrinth while I sat nearly knee-to-knee with Anna Friel and her friend, Lauren. Ignoring the drone filming us from the sky and the swarm of camera operators surrounding us, I conducted a shamanic journey.

No, it wasn’t a scene out of my new release, SPELL FIRE, but it could have been. SPELL FIRE features shamans and takes place, in part, in the high desert town of Joshua Tree, where we filmed the shamanic journey for British Airways and Visit California.

Coyotes hiding nearby began yipping as soon as the filming ended. The eerie sound wrapped around the labyrinth. Orange light filled the desert sky.

One last amazing sign greeted us as we exited the freeway. Melissa gasped. I followed her gaze and spotted a fiery ball arcing across the sky. I'm glad we both saw it, because it wasn't mentioned in any local news reports... Oddly, a similar fiery meteor was spotted over Copenhagen on the same night.

Maybe it was a dragon.


Ainslie Avalon-Bennett works hard to hide her Crazy Girl past. But as long as her best friend’s disappearance remains unsolved, she can’t shake the depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder that once landed her in a mental ward. As Christmas nears, she meets Thor Grael, a dragon shaman who spikes her pulse and calms her OCD. But will Ainslie lose him once he discovers her past? Or will Thor’s deadly secret be their undoing?
