Famlaer is a book about faeries. It’s mainly introducing the community and how they are created. It is more description than story at this point. My next book will be more story-like but still lots of introduction and descriptions of faeries not mentioned in the first book.   

In the meantime, I’d like you to meet Naldoow, the forest keeper. He is one of my favourite drawings. I thought it would be fun to make a faery look like an old hippy rocker. He is just one of many fun and unusual characters in Famlaer – The real faeryland.

This little fellow is the oldest looking of all the faeries. They are always male, they live to be 98 years old, and there are at least five around at all times. They live in the trees, making them the highest flyers of the whole of Faeryland. They fly to the tops of the tallest trees, acting a little like a scout watching for problems. The forest keeper has an overly humungous head but sports a small body, hands and feet. Quite out of proportion. Although he looks old, he’s actually one of the most energetic faeries. They always have a scowl on their face but have a wonderful sense of humour and for the most part, are quite happy. He resembles what we call a hippy from the sixties.


Famlaer paperback is available on Amazon.com for $9.95 US, $13.20 CA as well as UK, DE, FR, ES, IT AND JP. If you would rather read a digital copy it’s available for $4.98 US on all the same as above plus NL, CA, MX, AU AND IN. (the digital version is not available in mobi or epub, but can be read on your phone, tablet or computer using free readers that can be downloaded through Amazon or your mobile market)

Happy reading everyone.

To friends, family and followers, please share this link or search my book on Amazon and of course buying and giving it a favourable review would help tremendously. I would like to thank you all in advance for your support. It is most appreciated.

My Fairy Story…The Beginning

For my post this month I’ve produced some samples of the type of art work I’d like to use for the fairy book I am going to write. I’d like to make the book mainly illustration with short story bits to explain each illustration. I don’t have a complete story yet, but I have many of the characters created and drawn already.

For the last couple of months I’ve been drawing the same scene and using different mediums to see which one I should continue to produce for the entire book. I was hoping I could get a little help from my friends and get your opinions. You’ll notice that not every scene is exactly the same. I was also experimenting with different ways to make the final scene for the bubble fairy. And before you say he doesn’t have wings he can’t be a fairy, this is a different kind of fairy book and you’ll see in the end why I call him the bubble fairy. Who knows, maybe I’ll add wings in the end.

So here they are the 4 scenes in the mediums I thought worked best. Let me know which illustration you think would be best in my fairy book.
