Saturday Spotlight - Silver James

Whew what a week! I'll post on Wednesday (4/14) the results of NDA Collegic Dance & Cheer Competition but for now, please welcome to our spotlight, author Silver James and her book, Faerie Fate.

BIO: At the age of four, I lined up my stuffed animals and told them stories I made up. At thirteen, I committed my first “novel” to paper—in a black-and-white-plaid spiral notebook. “The Talisman” had a decent plot along the lines of “Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court” though processed through the brain of an adolescent girl. Needless to say, it was abysmal.

I’ve been married to my best friend, who also happens to be an attorney, for twenty-five years. Our wonderful daughter is in college, majoring in museum studies and history, a love she came by honestly from her dad and me both.

Over the course of my lifetime, I’ve been a military officer’s wife, state appellate court marshal, airport rescue firefighter and forensic fire photographer, crime analyst, and technical crime scene investigator. I’ve since retired from the “real world” and live in Oklahoma. I spend my days at the computer with my two dogs, the “lolcat” who owns us all, and myriad characters all clamoring for attention. Eventually, I’ll get around to telling each of their stories.

Blurb: If you could go back, do it over again, would you take a chance to find true love? What if you had no choice?

On her fiftieth birthday, the faerie send Rebecca Miller a thousand years into the past to find her happily ever after with Ciaran MacDermot, Chief of Clann MacDermot, the last Fenian warrior in his line. In the twenty-first century, Becca is old enough to be Ciaran’s mother. In the tenth, she’s young enough to be his bride.

The fae forgot to mention one slight stipulation. The lovers must be bound before the Festival of Light, or Becca will forever disappear into Tir Nan Óg, the faerie Land of the Ever Young. Will they discover the binding words before time runs out and they’re torn apart forever? Or will their eternal love defeat their Faerie Fate?

Without the words, history is doomed to repeat itself.


The little clock she’d received as a present on her twenty-fifth birthday whirred and chimed the time. One small, tinkling chime. Two. Finally, twelve in all. Midnight between March twentieth and March twenty-first. The vernal equinox. The day when light and dark, good and evil, love and hate all balanced on the finely tuned axis of mother earth.

Voices, strange with lilting accents, whispered somewhere in the darkness of her dream.


“She sleeps,” said a soft voice, feminine, one Becca didn’t recognize.

“Aye.” The second voice was deep, male, arrogant.

“Will she remember?”

“Nay, she’ll not.”

“How then will she know what to do?”

“She’ll know.” He sounded confident.

“What of him?”

“Aye, he’ll definitely know now. He should have known the last time, but she was too afraid, and he was too full of himself.”

“What is so different this time?” She was skeptical.

“She was young then, not matched well to him. Now, she’s no young soul. She’s had all those lives without him, the lonely nights, and the ache in her heart for all time. This time, she has courage born in the fires of suffering. She’ll know not to run from him, but to him.”

“You’re sure with the knowing of it this time?”


“And, if it doesn’t work?”

“Ciaran dies. Again.”

A sharp intake of breath came from the woman. “That cannot happen. Too much went wrong the first time.”

Good morning, Pamela! Thank you so much for the Saturday Spotlight. It's a pleasure to be here.

Clover Autrey said...

Great excerpt, Silver. I really like the twist of the heroine starting out with a tad more life experience behind her. Nice...

Silver James said...

Hi, Clover! Thanks. Watching Becca come to terms with her "old brain" in a "young body" was a lot of fun, and created much friction. :D

Donna B said...

Oh my gosh, it sounds wonderful! I love their "voices"!

But with all your experience, Silver, I'm amazed you don't write romantic suspense. Someday if I ever get around to writing mine would you be willing to be a reference for me?

Mary Ricksen said...

Silver, you are an amazing author! I loved the excerpt.

Silver James said...

Hi, Donna B. I'd be happy to read your RomSusp and give you a reference. :D

I do write some romantic suspense, but even so, there's a touch of magic in them. I have hopes those books will all make it to publication sooner than later.

Thanks for dropping by!

Silver James said...

Awwww, Mary. You're gonna make me blush! Speaking of being a terrific author, I take my hat off to you, lady. Just sayin'! Thanks for dropping by. :D

Paula R said...

Hey Silver, I'm BAAACCCKKK!!!! Just got back from chapter meeting,which was very informative.

I finished FF last night...er, early this morning...and it was AWESOME!!! I love Becca and Ciaran. Your secondary characters are all great. I feel Niall and Siobhan might need a story of their own...hint. I cried and I laughed, and I shouted out loud, I yelled and screamed too, which kinda scared the boys on dorm....LOL!!!! I will check back later. I just wanted to drop in and show you some love.

Peace and love,
Paula R.

Silver James said...

Awwww, Paula! I'm so glad you enjoyed the book, even if you scared the boys in your dorm. LOL And thank you for the email! Talk to you soon!

Paula R said...
