Abby O’Malley’s world is falling apart. The historic Savannah bar her father left her is about to be repossessed by the bank–until she catches a leprechaun, Michael McKnight, in her yard. His pot of gold can’t help her, though, because he’s under a fairy curse. The solution to HER problem turns out to be the same as the solution to HIS problem,. Sprinkled with lots of fairy dust and out-of-this-world love, Three Wishes transported me away from my mundane cares–which, of course, is the everyday magic of reading.

A Leprecahun’s Gold, Fairy Magic, and the mystery of her One True Love: THREE WISHES & Weekend Writing Warriors 3-6-16

Last week’s excerpt’s last line:

Abby’s knees chose that moment to give way, and she collapsed into a heap at the base of the tree.


 

     Michael McKnight heard Abby’s plea, felt the waves of magic radiating out to him from the fairy charms she’d acquired, and the instant she’d asked for fairy magic, and put that tiny door at the base of the grand live oak he bent time and space to get to her. Banished for the last ten years for the misuse of his magic—and for hoarding gold—he had spent a life apart from her, one that had literally been a living hell.

     “Wake up, Abby!” He’d scared the precious thing to death. “What have I done – ahh, damn it, Abby, don’t do this to me, sweetheart, wake up!”

     Getting caught by a human was end-game for any leprechaun, but Michael wanted her to catch him. He’d loved her since they were children, and sometimes he thought he’d dreamed her into life.

     But she’d never recognize him now—penance for his sins included the curse of living in this ridiculously tiny body with the green felt hat and shoes.

     He cradled her head in his hands, her angelic face graced with freckles, everywhere, and those waving locks of long ginger hair. “Ahh, my Irish lass, through-and-through, you’re overcome with the sight of me.”

THREE WISHES

“Some prince charming, huh?” Weekend Writing Warriors and THREE WISHES – 02-21-16

Hello Dear Readers,

Wishing for spring? For those of us Down South, spring is definitely in the air. So, in honor of my Savannah heritage I’m sharing a snippet from a little Irish fairy tale I wrote, entitled THREE WISHES.


 

      Abigail O’Malley cursed under her breath, stalked down the cobblestone street of Savannah’s historic district, and dialed her friend/bouncer/right-hand barman. A moment later Eddie’s big bass voice filled the phone with, “O’Malley’s Bar & Grill.”

     “You’re never gonna believe it,” Abby said, cringed, and delivered the news. “Kevin Finnegan called the note due on the property taxes on the bar, and my house.”

     “Sheee-it,” Eddie said, his southern drawl drawing the cussword out into two long syllables, and if she weren’t so devastated Abby would have laughed.

     “He proposed last night, and when I refused he immediately demanded his damn money. Some prince charming, huh?”

     “O’Malley’s is prime real estate on River Street sweetheart, but he can’t move in on us the week before St. Patrick’s Day! Can’t you file an injunction or something, maybe sic your snake of an attorney on his ass?”

     “I tried, Eddie, but Kevin Finnegan’s the president of the damn bank, and he wants his money tomorrow.”

St. Patrick’s Day is in my blood – part of my history growing up in Savannah, Georgia. Heck, it’s a national holiday in Savannah, and a bang-up serious celebration. Allegedly, the 2nd largest Irish celebration in the US happens right there in my hometown.
