Hi, and welcome to an introduction of ELEMENTALS - The Series 



About ELEMENTALS - The Series

Warningthis series contains sexual elements that might offend the average reader.

ELEMENTALS – The Series is Historical Fantasy, some of the stories are inspired by personal experience but most are developed from imagination and extensive research. My intent is not to convince anyone that my information is exact nor the only available data; my main objective is to create action and dialogue in a time and place where my characters live and are inspired to do and become what they want or go next.


Plato said that myths are memories and history. The ancient Greeks said that the word Mythology is two parts, Ethos and Logo. The first or Ethos develops from history, religion, nature, language, art, symbolisms, order, and chaos. Logo is investigating science and elements that make us who we were. 


The series is based on extensive research or Logo. Also by Thos, such as the journeys into the unknown, Angels, Creation, Heaven, and a Paradise as a symbol of perfect order, plus concepts that, in birth, we are one and in death, we are separated. That the Hero/Heroine journeys into the unknown including forces or gifts such as guides to their destiny, and that we are born, die, and are reborn. 


From myth evolved the belief in elemental spirits one from each element: mermaids from water, sylphs from the air, gnomes from the earth, and salamanders from spirits. Now, scientists speak of humanity as having an elemental spirit called “natural tectonics”, the forces cracking the planet's crust with earthquakes and volcanoes. 


However, it’s believed that all elemental spirits lack an immortal soul unless they marry a human, then the “elemental and its offspring could gain a soul.” In the “Paracelsian concept” elementals are supernatural “humanoid beings” and said to live longer than humans and are not immortals but, by wedding a mortal, “it becomes immortal.”   Quoted text and additional information on elementals are found in mythology, ancient history, The Old Testament, and on Wikipedia or Google by searching for Elementals.

A short but provocative tale about an Archangel seduced by a mystical Virgin.

Fantasy/Mythology

Available on Amazon and D2D

NOTE: The Sylph's Tale was published missing text and the most significant chapters. Amazon and D2D state they will give, those who purchased it, a free electronic copy of AYEKAH THE DAMNED, Book I in the upcoming ELEMENTALS - The Series.

COMMENTS
"This has imagination and touches on the mythic and spiritual in ways that are not typical."

"The Sylph's Tale made for a most unusual read. The choice to format the story more as a series of vignettes from a creation myth. Fallen angels appear in many stories, but it's far less common to see through the angels' own eyes."

"The love between a girl from prehistoric days and Ayekah was beautifully told. Although this book was too religious to my liking, I believe that the next books will probably be more paranormal than biblical."

The Sylph’s Tale screenplay adaptation won an ISA third-place award.
