I'm Mary Reynolds Woldering, author of the Children of Stone, a Visionary Fiction series that takes you deep into the world of the ancient past, the kingdoms, the people and their passions. I'm an artisan, art historian, devoted wife of Dr. Jackie Woldering, mother of two adult children Ruth and Thom and grandmother of five.
The idea for this series first came to a friend and me when I was in college. Over a few years we meditated, thought, told tales, drew and wrote segments of story from a long ago world.
Much later, I began to write these notes in story form, adding speculative history and new ideas to the mix. Even later I took my characters on fantastic journeys through lives and through magic to all corners of the Universe and the edges of time itself. Even so, I wanted my readers to "be there" walking with my characters.
Sometimes it moves slowly, giving you time to think. At other times, it entertains, it romps, It leaps, IT HOWLS and it's just plain fun. An alien race of gods, wizards, shape-shifters, heroic mortals, and immortals; palace intrigue, murder, madness, confusion, bizarre twists and plot turns...dangerous hookups, evil geniuses, punk sorcerers, traitors...
Join me as I tell you some beautiful stories.
