Earth is entering a frightening and challenging era. Through fiction, Gaia’s Majesty-Mission Called-Women in Power explores the future as it might be. We cannot know where the empowerment of women may lead us. But the prospects of our future with their empowerment are intriguing to explore.
And so our fictional adventure begins. Our earth mother, Gaia, foresaw a definitive epoch when the survival of humankind and her beautiful blue planet would be at issue. That day is upon us. Earth is enveloped in environmental and social crises. Unless humankind serves as stewards for Earth and themselves the planet may be despoiled.
Gaia could not sit by and observe the destruction of her Earth and the clever beings she found intriguing. This is the story of the gifted population of mermaid women she reserved in the sea who are dedicated to safeguarding the future of humankind and Earth.
You used to adore me. You took my bounty gratefully and before my loving sight developed your skills as will a child in the sight of mother. You worshipped me and my fruitfulness. I tested you with adversity which made you strong. But in time you selfishly saw Earth’s bounty as your due. You now have a choice between stewardship or devastation.
Gaia’s Majesty-Mission Called: Women in Power is the first book in the Gaia’s Majesty Trilogy. It opens in the present day in a real world context. A fantasy element is revealed when we learn about a hidden population which has a mission of great importance for our future.
Wisely Gaia reserved a gifted population of women dedicated to safeguarding the future of humankind and Earth. The women called Progenitors lived in the sea and could transform to live on the land if they chose. Some of them came to land to form families and called themselves Primals. Among them were a defense force of women called the Andromeda. Collectively these people were called Tethyans.
Gaia foresaw a definitive epoch which is now upon us. Our planet is enveloped in environmental and social crises. Unless humankind serves as stewards for Earth and ourselves we may live on a despoiled planet as people held in bondage by a wealthy class of plutocrats. The empowerment of women holds the key to our future.
Gaia’s Majesty Trilogy explores if Gaia’s preparations will succeed. Is this story a myth, or like so many myths, does it reside on the cusp of reality?

Got tired of bloody vampires and wondered about emotional vampires. The idea sort of stuck in my mind and blended in with my demons from There Be Demons, which will be coming out in Summer 2014 from The Grumpy Dragon. Cassy Mae will appear in the trilogy.
I like to use short stories to develop characters after they appear in my mind. This is Cassy Mae’s moment in the sun.
