Elethiya Origins

I have been a published author for about a decade now and in that time, I've written dozens of romance novels. This project for me though is incredibly personal as for the first time, I'm unleashing my Disney lovin' self into a world that I've created. This is Disney World with a quiet little town just within its borders, back in the trees. It came to me one day while I was riding the monorail. It was an idea I'd played with off and on for years, but I finally put two things together and came up with an idea I could get really excited about.

Not far from Orlando is a place called Cassadaga. It's a spiritualist's camp. Their residents are psychic, their hotel is haunted, and it fascinates me. I thought to myself, what if Cassadaga where sitting right here next to Disney World, and what if this town had secrets? Like, what if the residents weren't all human? What if there was a portal to a dark fairy tale realm and the barriers between realms has been breached? And what if there was a legendary falls that held the secret to life and death and possibly the origin thereof?

Take all that, wrap it in Disney World, and you have Elethiya. (El lee thee ah)

There are five different lines, or types, of stories within this world. We have fairy tales, sacred soul mates, those striving for fame and all that goes with it, and we even have a secret club high atop one of the exclusive hotels were bdsm looks nothing like what you've heard. Here men and women of honor seek the type of completion of soul that only the right pairing of Dom to sub can ever deliver.

You can check out more on each line on the Themes page on the site.

I hope you'll give my new world a try. I'm going indie with this project because honestly, it's just too personal to put in the hands of a publisher, even the amazing ones I work with regularly. So what I need more than anything from you all, is to spread the word, share the links, get excited and tell everyone! My intention is to have Elethiya be a long running series that gets truly embraced by its readers.

I love writing fiction, creating characters, and now, worlds. It's one of the greatest gifts of my life and to be able to mesh this with my Disney love, it's more than I ever knew I could have. I hope those of you who love my work will stick by me with this shift, and I hope to open up to a whole new world of Disney fans now as well.

Starlight Key - Scene 14 Unknown Point in Space

“We are at the given coordinates Captain.”
“Sage…” He gave a small sigh. “I keep telling you, I am not your captain.”
He looked out at the void in front of the ship, a few stars, but nothing else.
It had been a long journey to this point. He’d gone on faith and would continue that way.
He breathed and lightened as he turned to face Sage. She was beautiful, with bright aqua-green eyes like the Taozian sea and long red hair like the mountain range of Terra-Li.
“But thank you, Sage.”
“So what now, oh wise one?” A sharp tone came from behind.
He turned to look at Avaylah sitting in the pilot’s chair. She released the controls, pulled her long blonde hair all over one shoulder and swung her legs up over the arms of the chair. Her pale blue skin glistened in the odd lighting they had rigged on the command deck, but she was a beautiful woman, if not for her crappy attitude. She was just with them for the money and the adventure, which was fine by him, they each had their own reasoning for being there. So long as none of their reasons kept him from achieving his agenda, all was good.
Despite her crappy mood most of the time, this woman in particular, was a hell of a pilot. Best he’d ever known, so he was glad to have her on board… even if she was working out her personal issues on his time.
“We wait.” He turned back to look out the front view screen. “He’ll be here.”
Honestly, he didn’t know if he’d be there or not, but faith… it was all he had.
“Tell us again… of the story.” Li beckoned.
He closed his eyes and smiled. Something about Li’s wide-eyed innocence always reminded him to not take things so seriously. He’d never met a species quite like Li’s before. He was as effeminate as he was masculine and while his pointed ears and soft purplish-grey coloring wasn’t necessarily unusual, sometimes, looking into those two perfect crystals he called eyes, he swore Li held the secrets of the universe.
“Not right now, Li. I’ve told you at least twenty times. Right now, let’s

Starlight Key - Scene 13 Starlight Key (Aurora)

“Mingle.” Aurora spoke softly to herself. “Such a simple concept.”
Yet it still had her feeling more nervous than anything.  As she rounded the hedge she was back in the garden looking at seven bewildered men standing on a brick patio surrounded by twinkle light adorned foliage.
“Hi.” She waved like a dork.
They all smiled in return.
She breathed out her nerves and walked into the fray.
“Hey, would you guys mind if we stopped the one on one stuff for the night? I’m starting to feel a bit brain zapped and I figure we’ll have all the time in the world really to get to know one another, given we’re living together.” She felt a little green again at the thought.
“Yeah, Big Brother meets the Bachelorette, right?” Aiden smirked.
She swallowed hard hoping it really wouldn’t look like that when it was all said and done.
“Tell you what…” She looked over her shoulder at a large red sectional. “Let’s all go sit over there together, and you all talk. I’ll listen and when I’m not feeling quite so overwhelmed…”
“One step at a time, sweetheart.” Keiren took her hand and started leading her to the sofa.
The others all followed and in the end, she was seated between Kieren and Aiden, with Romeo on the ottoman in front of her and the other men spread out on either side. There were gardenia bushes behind them and the scent was heavenly.
She looked over her right shoulder and caught Mal’s gaze. It comforted her. Like she could go on, just because she knew he was there.
She looked back at the other men and a ridiculous giggle bubbled out from her nerves.
“This is trickier than it looks.”
She shrugged, hoping at least one or two would understand.
“Aurora.” Romeo held out his hand to hers and looked around at the other men. “I think it’s safe to speak for everyone when I tell you we’re all here for you. Whatever you need, whether that be time alone with one of us, or with yourself, you let us know.”
He looked again at the other men.
“Let’s make a pact now, each of us promises to respect and protect Aurora above our own feelings, above this production, above each other.”
“Knights of valor.” Mal chimed in.
“A little over the top, but sure.” Romeo spoke again. “I get this is all going to be captured on film and in a few months we may not get to walk down the street again without people giving us weird looks, but we aren’t here for that, we’re here to find love. Each of us chosen for whatever reasons, I know what the screening process was, I feel confident to say there isn’t one man that made it through that has any agenda other than Aurora. Am I right?”
Again he looked to the other men.
She looked at him, her hero. He was wrangling the men to help her handle all of this.
The other men agreed with him and he asked again… “Aurora’s needs first, yes?”
Several of them chimed back at him, “Aurora’s needs first.” Others simply nodded.
He leaned forward, leaning his elbows on his knees and holding her hands.
“This is a surreal experience for us all, but together, we’ll get through it and hopefully…” He shrugged one shoulder. “Well, you know.”
Happily ever after.
“Yeah. I know.”
It was a gallant offer and idea, but she wondered how long this current comradery would actually last. It’s not like she hadn’t watched her share of reality dating shows, okay,

Starlight Key - Scene 12 Earth, in a near future (Kav - Adult Themes)

Kav walked across the commissary floor of his ship carting a large box of odds and ends. He had a love hate relationship with that ship. It had seen him through many battles, but she was pretty much falling apart now and he spent more time fixing her than flying her anywhere.
 This mess hall wasn’t the original one meant to serve thousands of soldiers. He Aeon and Nauhuel had built the smaller space on a lower deck that would accommodate a hundred at most. The walls were painted blue-gray, the floor was made to look like wood and the tables and chairs were made of metal and all recycled from the old mess hall so they were the ones with the least damage. It was a more intimate feel. If he had to say so himself, it was one of the nicer spots on the old ship now although he imagined it still lacked any of the finer graces, but then again, most of life lacked those things these days.
With his arms loaded up with boxes. He purposefully made no mention of the fact that when he walked in, he found Havana with her tongue down the Nahuel’s throat. He did however make a mental note of how incredible she looked in the black leather, skin tight catsuit.
“Glad to know you’ll be joining us, Havanah. Wouldn’t be an adventure without you.”
He moved in very close and exchanged an equally intimate kiss with the gorgeous raven haired temptress before continuing to a place he could set the boxes down.
“Glad to know you’ll be here too Nauhuel.” He added as an afterthought.
He moved behind a bar set up to
