Today I'm going to talk about THE FAE - in particular CELTIC or SCOTTISH FAE.

You know, the little folk, the wee ones, the Tuatha De Dannan, the Sidhe, all living in the Otherworld or in Tír na nÓg the land of youth - where no mortal man ever grows old!

Who or What are these magical creatures?
There are many theories... some even believe they are aliens!
Some believe they are from an ancient civilization.

Personally, I believe that THE FAE are fallen angels, stuck between Heaven and Hell. Trapped in a limbo, hidden away from human eyes, living in their own magical world.
Torn between turning into an angel or a demon.
To me that sounds more interesting than tossing them off as aliens.

One of the things that I do with my writing is to include these rare and mythological creatures that so many writers don't use.

That's why you won't see your typical paranormal creatures in my stories, except for maybe a ghost! (boo!) Things like vampires, werewolves, witches, fallen angels, demons, zombies, trolls, and even ghosts are all over the place in our lovely Paranormal Romance World.

Now, don't get me wrong!
These are wonderful, fun exciting horror creatures that WE ALL LOVE!! 
I even have Scottish zombie warriors called Màrmann and a ghost in Guardian of the Moon Pendant.

But, what my plan is - is to include all these great interesting, fascinating CELTIC /SCOTTISH FAE into my books and I'd like ALL of you to come along for the ride!

I was thinking that every week or two - depending on schedule.
I'll introduce to you one of the SCOTTISH FAE that I am using in the Guardian of the Moon Pendant.

Either myself or my friend Andrew DeFelice will draw a picture and I'll give a definition of what it is! Hopefully more of the pictures will be from Andrew because - seriously, I haven't drawn a thing since college!

So that's what I aim to do! Come back an visit me and we'll explore all the different SCOTTISH FAE I use in my book: Guardian of the Moon Pendant
