Hello everyone. Welcome to my site, which is aimed at enticing those of you who have a zest for writing...and of course who love to read a good story! My name is Julie Elizabeth Powell and I'm offering you a place where you can discuss words in any form, as long as they are imaginative, creative, informative, interesting, thought-provoking (and decent).
After Charley dies in her office chair, how is it that she finds herself propelled into the mysterious world of Avalon?
Upon encountering an essence, which insists is her daughter, the one she knows she left behind, insanity battles with fear inside her mind.
The further she delves, the more puzzling things appear, especially after she rises into the Orb of Caprice - a realm of fairies, talking flowers and goblins; and something else, something that lurks in the shadows ready to swallow her whole.
Can she realize in time what it is she must do; or has she left it too late?
What is difference?
Is it in how we speak,
How we look,
Or how we see the world?
Is it the color of our eyes,
The swing of our walk,
Or the very essence of
Whatever it is,
Maybe we should embrace it
Rather than wanting to
Or kill it.
Next time there is
What about me?
How do they see me?
Do I care?
Should I care?
What, in the end, do
We need but
Regardless of change.
Jorja always knew she was different. But it wasn’t until she discovered her telekinetic ability that she realised just how different she was. Living with her frail mother and an obsessive, cruel and hated aunt, Jorja grapples with the truth of her being.
As her story is revealed, other powers are uncovered – not least that she can see other people’s souls in the colours that surround them – and we are led into a surprising and shocking world of fantasy, forcing doubt as to the sanity of the heroine.
We follow Jorja’s life, delving into her loves, hates and fears though cannot help but delight in the woman she becomes, despite the question which hangs mysteriously in the air. It will be up to the reader to decide if Mageia and its diverse inhabitants are indeed real or only the illusionary world created by a disturbed mind, due, not only to grief but also to her persecution by her aunt and the defective qualities of a barbarous doctor.
Although the story is resolved, questions will remain.
Andi has always been anxious about her weight and like many women, thinks that unless she is thin, she has no value.
Follow her 'misadventures' and see if this is true or will she find there are more important things that makes a person who and what they are?
Gavin Bloom and Alex Moore run an online magazine for an adult market; although each insists it has to be within the limits of not only the law but to their sense of decency. Gavin is on the edge of developing a revolutionary turn for that very magazine, a programme that will no doubt secure the business, maybe forever.
Amidst the excitement and enjoyment of its success, however, is the mysterious and heinous murder of one of their own.
Who can have done it? And why?
And who is the woman fastened by a chain to a wall?
Follow the twists and turns and perhaps you can solve the puzzle before they do.
Warning: some strong language, violence and moderate scenes of a sexual nature.

Will they decipher the unknown and make it out alive?
Warning: strong language and scenes of violence /horror

Both Penny and Jane are frantic to find their daughters, if in different ways. Rick wonders what to do about his family. And who is William?

Will they find what is lost?
