Studying under painter Vincent Rushkin, young artist Isabelle Copley becomes so adept that her paintings take on a life of their own. This riveting Newford novel is about the power of art; about love, loyalty and the depths of friendship; innocence, cruelty, greed & denial; and the intertwining of these. Itís about facing buried memories and dreams, and ultimately, the fragility and strength of the human spirit.

Now, twenty years later, Isabelle must face a past that she has long denied, and once again unlock the slumbering power of her brush.

Someplace to Be Flying Seven Wild Sisters
Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 2014
When it comes to fairies, Sarah Jane Dillard must be careful what she wishes for. She may have thought she wanted to meet the fairies of the Tanglewood Forest, but that was before she knew the truth about them. When Sarah Jane discovers a tiny man wounded by a cluster of miniature poison arrows, she brings him to the reclusive Aunt Lillian for help. But the two quickly find themselves ensnared in a longtime war between rival fairy clans, and Sarah Jane's six sisters have been kidnapped to use as ransom. Her only choice is to go after them, and with the help of several mythical friends—from the Apple Tree Man to a cat called Li'l Pater—she'll have to find a way to untangle herself from the fairy feud before she and her sisters are trapped in their world forever.

Come join the misfits, marginalized and orphans of the modern world—street folks who sit around the fire by Moth's trailer in the junkyard in their own "family of choice." Meet a punky pair of Crow Girls—delightful yet dangerous, who will insert themselves into your heart and change you forever; Raven—engimatic keeper of the pot that safeguards the ways of our world; Coyote—handsome Trickster ever driven to stir the pot with good intentions yet dire consequences; Fox—seductive canid whose past indiscretions return to haunt him; Jack Daw—storyteller who spins captivating tales while hiding his deepest sorrow; the Cuckoo family—viscious, amoral and determined to gain control of whatever will destroy the corbae (crow) clans.

Spiritwalk is the sequel to the classic Moonheart. This edition features a new afterword by the author. You can get the Kindle version at Amazon and in other formats at Smashwords. And if you need a free Kindle reader you can get that here .

Tamson House in downtown Ottawa is a place of hidden power, for the House is a door to other lands where Celtic and native American magicks mingle and leak into our own. Magic breathes in the walls of the House, mystery sleeps in its enclosed garden. Leylines rest beneath its foundations, and inside its rooms Weirdin discs are thrown into patterns that speak of the distant past and the shadowed future to come.

The House takes up a entire city block and yet is even larger than it seems, for rooms appear and disappear and the twisty overgrown garden paths lead to a vast and primal Wood that no city streets have ever contained. There is something dark within that Wood, threatening the existence of Tamson House and all who dwell within it. Three green children hang from a tree; a coyote man waits in the moonless dark, the Autumn Lady carries her heavy gift; shadows are lost; the Westlin Wind sings; and old spirits wake and walk between worlds.

Life is complicated in the once-quiet beach town of Santa Feliz. Over the past six months many teens have inexplicably become animal shape-shifters known as Wildlings. The town is rife with fear, and Wildlings have quickly learned to keep their animal identities hidden or face persecution.

Now that Josh Saunders has a mountain lion living under his skin, his life seems to careen from one crisis to another. His best friends have just helped him narrowly escape cruel medical experimentation, and now that he's back home Josh wants at least a few more days of living like a normal teenager. But the FBI is tailing him, a vengeful school bully is out to hurt and expose him, and a formidable Wildling Elder has secretly arranged to have him killed by the hand of one of his own Wildling friends.

When Sara Kendell opens a box of oddments in the storeroom of the Merry Dancers Old Book and Antique Emporium, she has no idea that she'll stumble across anything unusual. But those seemingly ordinary artifacts—a painting, a ring and a flat bone disc—will turn Sara's world upside down and lead her to places she never dreamed could exist: a world of mists and forests, ancient magics, mythical beings, ageless bards...and restless evil.

In a tale sweeping from ancient Wales to the streets of modern Ottawa, de Lint's unforgettable characters—Sara Kendell; her beloved uncle Jamie; Blue the biker; Kieran the folk musician; RCMP Inspector Tucker; Pukwudji the trickster; the inscrutable Tom Hengyr; and the magic of Tamson House itself—will stay with you forever.

Loons mate for life, but one year up on our lake near Bouchette, Quebec, only one of our nesting pair returned. Happily, we have a number of them back on the lake now, but this slow air serves as a reminder of the fragility of life.
