More Books in the Works for Jemsbooks!

There is no end to more ideas that keep popping into my head during the day or at night in a dream. I have two WIP at the moment, a book in a fantasy series, a short story collection for children and now three more books are in the early stages of development – a story about an angel and another about a fairy and still another about a dog. There is also a series that I want to begin soon involving another character from my first novel. How will I ever complete all these books? I may get to complete four books this year yet or not!

Of course, not all these stories will come to fruition. They may sputter and disappear into a void or a nook that will keep them aside until more ideas come alive to complete them. That is the way it works with spontaneous creativity. At times I feel overwhelmed when all these ideas begin to surround me and beg to tell their stories.

Each time I take a walk with my husband I see something that sparks more ideas for a story. He just shakes his head at me. At times like this I would like to clone myself so that my clone could work on some of the ideas while I work on the others. Sigh!

Get into the action and adventures of The Legend of the Taken Ones (Gateskin Chronicles Book 1) before Book 2 comes along. You won’t be disappointed! I may take a break and work on three other WIP before I tackle Book 3. It is quite an epic production with the myriad characters, creatures, spells, places and adventures. They all take a lot out of me! Sigh!

But you can enjoy Book 1 and soon Book 2 in the meantime. I promise I will begin work on Book 3 later this year. I hope you enjoy this fantasy series and let the adventures take you away!


This is Book 1 of a fantasy series that will have six books in all. In this book learn about the three children of King Gateskin and his wife, Queen Solinara. The children have had powers since they were quite young..

Serena was three years old when she learned of her power to move objects with her mind. Her brother, Simon, can fly and their sister, Catalina, can become invisible or blend into her surroundings. They live with their parents in Sovorotskina, the Land of Light.

With these powers comes responsibility. The children must try to use their powers for the common good and responsibly to help others. The three children befriend a Sprite named Spindle who accompanies them on their adventure. Along the way they meet up with their aunt and uncle, their mother’s brother and his wife, Wizard Hotenfaran and Fairy Procelina. The group must travel into the evil land of Parotovina, Land of Darkness, to save King Gateskin, who was kidnapped, and also rescue some of the descendants of their friends and fellow Sovorotskinans who were captured and taken by the Evil Ones. These descendants have been waiting a long time to be free to return to the villages of their ancestors.

The children have many trials and adventures along the way. Will they be able to rescue their father and fellow Sovorotskinans without endangering their own lives? Will the evil King Kaposkaran and his Queen Beregina stop Serena and her siblings from being successful or will they turn Serena and her siblings to their dark ways?

Here are some reviews from Amazon of what readers are saying.

Thank you for your kind support of my books and blog! Please keep those reviews coming! It’s like receiving early Christmas presents!

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
