The idea of warlocks, witches, elves, trolls, minotaur,
centaurs, werewolves, and other woodland creatures walking among the 21st
Century neighborhoods is fantastic.
Ms. Drake writes in the sagacity as one ranked in
the league of fairy-tales weaved with reality that opens one’s mind to
possibilities that the tattoo world was one of amazement as well as great
Gage, the main attraction even though human breaks
bonds and becomes part of the Olympians with warlock powers—which he later
Leaving the Magical Ivory Tower was harder than

of Capitol Hill and many of its diversions that the common people have no idea
what really happens—when Power and Money mixes.
Molly Malone once the voice of reasoning during her

Currently, I'm working on Agatha-Josephine Friday Noonsday, amateur sleuth and her sidekick Nicky.
These two high school students always find a way to get themselves into all sorts of trouble.
Agatha-Josephine claims the problem is in her blood since her grandfather, father and brother were all three in law enforcement, but in Nicky's case he likes Joe (that's the name everyone calls her) and he thinks he can save her from herself. Which proves to be a 24 hour job of mishaps, zany misunderstandings as well as murder.
To be released soon, come along and ride the wild ride with Agatha-Josephine (Joe), Nicky, Gramps, Mikey and Uncle Joe Friday. See if you can figure out why the author calls each story Gumbo?
For now as Agatha-Josephine would say, "I know there's a mystery here."
