Wild Magic Series Book 1
by Eileen Troemel
Genre: Paranormal Fantasy
Mallory’s magi gifts send her north into the province where almost all the magi were killed. If anyone discovers she is a magi, her life is in peril. But she must go where her gifts send her. A boy needs her help or he will die.
Leland, Pintra, Faolan, Jadan, Ovra, and Erga travel from Scons province to Lins to seek a magi master. In a small village Jadan gets separated and is accused of theft. Without Mallory’s help, the angry mob will kill him. Mallory steps in, uses her gifts to save him but exposes herself as a magi.
The seven escape the angry village and hide out in caves. When Jadan’s injuries turn deadly, Mallory is forced to use her gifts, exposing herself to the group of strangers she doesn’t trust. Is she the magi master they’ve been looking for or will they turn her in for the bounty?
The children settled into the schoolyard with Mallory pacing amongst them. Faolan waited with the small squad with her. The energy from the children floated gently around them as they attempted to light their candles. One by one the flame popped on. “What will we learn next,” Rana asked. “We’re going to work on seeking,” Mallory said. She remembered it was the second thing she learned. As she had explained it to Faolan, she said, “I want you to focus on the tree on the other side of the fence.” The children obeyed without question. “You know what a tree looks like,” Mallory said. “In your mind I want you to see that tree, feel the energy you use to light your candle in the tree.” Some of the children leaned in the direction of the tree while others frowned as they focused. Mallory guided them. “See the energy,” her eyes met Faolan’s to signal she felt someone watching her. She faced away from the tree towards one of the buildings across from the school. “Sarge,” Faolan said quietly. “Send one of your squad to check out every person in that building.” “Covertly,” Sergeant Nerin asked. “Yes,” Faolan said. He took a deep breath. “Street side of the building someone in the attic.” “Yes, sir,” Sarge said. With a small flick of his hand the soldiers changed positions, moved around to do a routine perimeter check. One of them slipped away while the others distracted any onlookers. “It’s fluttering,” Alexia said. “It’s like curtains blowing on the breeze except busier.” “Yes,” Mallory said as she watched the soldiers shift around her and the children. “Do you think one is enough," Nerin asked as his gut twisted and churned. “Got a feeling,” Faolan asked as he watched the building. “Yeah,” Nerin said. He tapped another private and sent him after the first one. A cry from the across the street echoed out. “Take half the squad,” Faolan said. “I’ll stay with Lady Mallory.” Nerin held up four fingers as his squad split up. “Are there more bad men,” Rana asked coming to stand next to Mallory. Suddenly all the children surrounded her. “We don’t want bad men to hurt you.” “It will be all right,” Mallory tried to sooth, but the elemental energy roared around her with all the children on alert to any danger. “Is teaching us dangerous,” Alexia asked. “No,” Mallory said. “I’m sure …” She stopped as she heard running feet. “Stop,” Nerin ordered as he and his people gave chase. The sound of running feet reached the school yard as Nerin and his smaller squad pursued an individual. Horses whinnied; people shouted. The children crowded around Mallory. Faolan watched and felt the energy they gave off. They weren’t frightened but protective. He had the squad move in closer to Mallory. “We’re here to protect Lady Mallory,” he assured the children. “We are NOT letting anyone take her away,” Alexia said. “We aren’t.”

Family - is it those you’re born to or those you love? Mallory meets her blood family. Anger clouds her judgement. Will her emotions cause harm to the family of her heart?
From poetry to novel, I enjoy telling a good story or expressing a heartfelt emotion. I've been published in Circle Magazine, The American Tarot Association's Quarterly Journal, What's Cooking America, Children, Churches and Daddies, placed second in Words of Women 2010 Writing Contest, 2012 Daily Flash, and The Deadman's Tome. I have a bachelor's degree in business and a second bachelor's degree in English Professional Writing and Book Editing. On the side, I have a small editing business. In addition to my work, I love to read, crochet, crafting, research genealogy, and spend time with family. I have three adult daughters and have been married to my husband for over 30 years. I'm the proud grandma of three fur babies - my daughters' cats.
If you knew you'd die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?
I know the right answer here is to say I’d spend it with family and friends but the reality is I’m so practical, I’d probably be writing instructions for my husband and daughters, finishing crochet projects and trying to finish whatever book I’m currently working on.
Who is your hero and why?
I don’t really have heroes. I have respect. My great grandmother emigrated from Ireland when she was 16 – I think that took a lot of courage. My paternal grandmother had multiple miscarriages but she didn’t let them make her bitter. She was kind and generous. My maternal grandmother wasn’t allowed to be educated past 8th grade. Yet she went on to be a business owner. My mom was widowed in her early 50s and lost the farm and her way of life. She had to learn to support herself. She started a career then. My sisters – well we’re all strong, stubborn, determined women who had to overcome many challenges. Then there’s my daughters. These three women are strong, social conscious, and independent women who make me proud every day.
What kind of world ruler would you be?
Well now this is interesting. For those things I actually care about – I’d probably be all over it. For the rest, I’d delegate.
What are you passionate about these days?
Writing, crocheting, and family.
What do you do to unwind and relax?
There’s nothing better than curling up to watch a movie and work on a crochet project. This is my down time.
