Sharing Tharin and Lily




I've been asked many times how I would describe The Binding. My usual response is “The Binding is about an ordinary girl who was saved by an elf prince. He takes her from her simple life to fulfill a contract in the realm of Velesi. The girl agrees to journey with the prince in hopes of finding her missing brother. On their way to the prince’s realm, they face many obstacles and dangers.”

I realize the injustice I have done, not only to myself as the author of The Binding, but to the story as well. The narrative is about people—two very special individuals and the people who love them. Sure, there's mortal threat, deception, intrigue and prevalent evil. There are physical battles and emotional ones of the mind and heart. There are ogres, trolls, and demons.  There are also dryads, witches, wizards and assassins, a first glimpse of the dark elves, and love unrequited. Then there is the hope of reaching heaven...a place called Eirrell. 

And, let's not forget about the cat—ah, the black stealth that will steal your heart and become a part of your world within the Velesi trilogy. 

Within this chaotic and fantastic whirlwind, stand an elf prince and his halfling princess. Each looking for someone to complete them; destine to find what they never knew they were missing. Here is the heart of our story—Tharin and Lily. The Velesi trilogy is about their first meeting, their resistance to one another despite their strong connection, and finally, their acceptance of the fact that their strength lies within their Binding. Throughout their journey, they learn what it means to truly belong. It is a story of perseverance, hope, and most of all, love.

For those who have read Tharin's and Lily's story, I ask this one humble request- please share their story with family, friends, the mailman, the lady at the grocery store, the mechanic, your dental hygienist, and anyone who loves a good read. Send it to your Facebook and Instagram friends in Brazil, Jamaica, England, Japan, Mexico and wherever to whomever you write to. Tell them about Tharin’s and Lily’s story…spread the word and share the love!


Until the next time, good reading to all.
