MEGAN MCMUIR’S HUSBAND DAVID IS A TIARNA D’GEAL TINA, A WIZARD OF WHITE FIRE, SENT FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION TO PROTECT THE EARTH FROM AN ATTACK BY EXETER DUBHTINA OF THE TIARNA D’DOIT TINA, DURING THE HARMONIC CONVERGENCE. WHEN DAVID RETURNS TO HIS OWN DIMENSION TO BEGIN THE BATTLE, MEGAN FOLLOWS ONLY TO BE TAKEN HOSTAGE BY EXETER’S WOLF PACK. THE DARK LORD’S PLAN IS TO USE MEGAN AND HER UNBORN CHILD TO FORCE DAVID TO. DAVID, HOWEVER, HAD MADE A VOW WHICH ISN’T EASILY BROKEN, NOT EVEN TO SAVE THE WOMAN HE LOVES.
The Harmonic Covergence mentioned in my fantasy novel Wizard’s Wife occurred on August 16-24, 1987, and some of you may remember hearing about it on the Evening News on TV. It was an astronomical event: a time when our planets aligned themselves with the sun. This isn’t an unusual thing; there have been more harmonic convergences than you can shake a stick at. What was different about this one is that it involved all the planets, not just two or five or even seven. As usual, the doomsayers came out to make their dread pronouncements of what was to follow. When nothing happened, they faded back into the woodwork and the world went on, waiting for newer dire predictions to raise their chaotic heads.
Perhaps I should say nothing obvious happened. After the brouhaha died down, I found myself asking: What if something did happen but we just don’t know about it? Because it didn’t happen here on Earth?
And that’s how the story of Tavis (David) McMuir, Faery Wizard, Champion of White Fire, Defender of Ais Linn and the Earth, and his mortal wife, Megan, came about. David is one of the Little People, although as wife Megan reminds him when she first discovers his secret, at 6’2”, there’s only one portion of his anatomy fitting the human hand. In his dimension, he’s a Prince, a Tiarna (Wizard), and the champion of his half of the kingdom of Ais Linn. His opposite number is Exeter Dubhtina, also a Wizard, and ruler of the other half of the kingdom. Both are drop-dead gorgeous—there isn’t an ugly one in the bunch, and even Exeter’s Wolf Pack are the most handsome werewolves in existence—and both magically equal in power. Only trouble is, Exeter wants to rule everything, and he’s bored…so bored he decides to conquer the Earth so he can entertain himself by manipulating the puny mortals living on it. And now, he has a weapon: David’s wife and unborn child, and a secret about Ais Linn’s Champion that no one else knows…
All isn’t well in the Land of Fae, and it won’t be better on Earth if Exeter wins.
Wizard’s Wife is set for a January, 2011 release from Class Act Books.
