Or maybe you're a epic folklore fiend and you've read Greek, Norse, Scandinavian, Germanic...every form of folk literature under the sun. Perhaps you're … Continue reading The Táin
Caught up in your stardust kisses, I reach for my brush and paint a galaxy with only you in it. -Our little piece of heaven at the edge of the world. Laura Marie Copyright: Laura Davis © 2018, all rights reserved.
An immersive escape into the ancient world and tales; a seamless mix of the Celtic tongue, romance, and the old tales re-imagined. Beautiful. I picked up 'Daughter of the Forest' somewhat blind.
