 About the Book 

Rosalind has been a part of my life since 1990. I would sit in my room with sheets of paper and a pencil and let my mind wander as did my hand. I created Rosalind at the age of fifteen and all of her qualities then are what you see now, onlyMoreRosalind has been a part of my life since 1990. I would sit in my room with sheets of paper and a pencil and let my mind wander as did my hand. I created Rosalind at the age of fifteen and all of her qualities then are what you see now, only enhanced as I have aged. I have married and raised two children keeping busy for a many years. Rosalind was right there by my side. I contemplated for years how to start and how to finish her quest until a friend of mine talked me into reading a book she was absolutely in love with. I had not read in years due to, well, life, but I read that one book and an epiphany struck: I can do it, too. I had another epiphany… my kids are older, in school all day, why not utilize that time into writing? All it took was a massive amount of courage and a little research (that really didn’t do much for me) for the ideas to start flowing. One single short story, decades ago, flourished into a twist of events of possibilities to probabilities between right and wrong, between life and death, and between the feeble and the brawny. So now that I have told you a little about me… now let me tell you a hell of a lot about Rosalind. Rosalind Morgan Lawless’s uneventful life, in gorgeous Whitianga, New Zealand takes a magical turn on the prologue of her eighteenth birthday with a dream recollecting her mother’s pregnancy with her. Strange as that was, she goes about her day only to receive the oddest birthday presents: a family heirloom signifying a magical heritage, a book documenting fallen ancestors- and most importantly, knowledge. Witchcraft is familiar in this household, but true magic? Though Rosalind takes this revelation by surprise, she accepts that an extraordinary life is ahead… Then the visions come. Painful apparitions of a heritage past reveal a present danger only she can defeat. Frightened and confused, she turns to her birthday gifts for answers. Devised Destiny comes to mind as she reads the death of her ancestors and unique magical gifts each one carried, suddenly realizing it is she, the one, to hold them all! Not having time to distinguish her destiny, Rosalind falls in love with a man who has a destiny of his own. Kyler Hartman, who actually lives in the supernatural world, defends clueless humans by battling demons… just as his ancestors have done before. No matter the wealth and friends, Kyler’s cruel past has confined him to live a solitary existence, traveling the world with a death wish. Rosalind tries desperately to help Kyler come to terms with his pasts abuse as he supports her unhandled powers. All the while, disastrous events surround Rosalind, evil challenging her abilities just for a demonstration… Or simply to destroy a threat.
