Jaya the Nighttime Faerie & the Music of Everything is an illustrated journey of a young faerie who learns how to harness her special gifts to overcome any challenge or fear. When Jaya comes out at night, she hears and dances to the musical rhythms of nature—sounds that no one else can hear. When her playful explorations catch the attention of Mother Sky, she is given a gift - a guiding star - and is set upon a quest into the Land of the Unknown. On her journey she encounters things that are scary, but finds her inner wisdom and embraces her gifts to triumph over darkness. This story is a message of reassurance: even when we are most afraid—of the dark, death of a loved one or even our own power—we have an inner wisdom that can guide us.
The First Stone is an eight page "mini-book" that tells the tale of Santiago and Sofia's romantic and whimsical first date. They fall in love at first sight and this lovely day marks the first of thousands of happy days together which they commemorate by collecting a stone. This story is a prequel to the full length picture book Santiago's Stones that is currently in pre-production. More "mini-books" of Santiago and Sofia's adventures are coming soon!
