Excerpt from An Echo of the Fae, by Jenelle Leanne Schmidt:
My earliest memory returns often in my dreams. My mother’s soft smile
caresses me as she bends down to kiss my forehead, my own tiny hand reaching
up and trying to capture a lock of her long red-gold hair between clumsy fingers
that refuse to obey my wish. A soft, sweet humming fills the memory, a tune that
is both dear and yet unfamiliar. Eyes filled with love gaze down at me, and a
gentle laugh, a man’s laugh, fills the room. Strong arms encircle us both, my
mother and me, and I know I am perfectly safe. Perfectly loved.
Another sound permeates the memory: a rhythmic, rushing, liquid sound I do
not recognize, but which fills me with a deep longing that threatens to burst out of
my chest and leave me completely hollow. In the dream, it is merely a subtle
noise in the background, but when I wake I feel a desperate need to find its
source. Sometimes the longing clutches me so tightly that it leaves me gasping,
desperately sucking in each breath as if through a narrow reed, my lungs
screaming as though they have forgotten how to breathe the very air I need to
It is rare to have a memory from such a tender age, especially one so vivid.
And yet, that moment is locked in my thoughts with perfect clarity. During the day
it grows distant and faded, but it has haunted my sleep in full, vibrant detail each
night for nearly thirteen years.
So why is it that the face in my dreams is wholly unfamiliar to me? Why is the
mother from my memory a stranger?

During the days, I wrangle four small hobbits and help them along on their adventures.
Basically, I'm Gandalf.
But come evenings, when the hobbits are sleeping... I become my alter-ego: PLOT WIZARD (still a wizard, just a different kind)... and adventures await in the pages I scribble upon.
I write fantasy, fairy tale retellings, hints of steampunk, and I have epic plans for a hybrid science fiction/20s detective story mashup at some point... it's in the works. Mostly I stick with fantasy, though.
I'm a dreamer, a relentless opener of doors in the hope of someday finding passage to Narnia, and story girl.
I'm the author of the complete series "The Minstrel's Song," a four-book saga of epic adventure full of dragons, quests, magical swords, fierce warriors, friendship, loyalty, and an enigmatic minstrel. I won the second Rooglewood contest and my retelling of Beauty and the Beast, titled Stone Curse, was included in their Five Enchanted Roses anthology. I have two short stories published in Mythical Doorways and Paws, Claws, and Magic Tales with the Fellowship of Fantasy. I've had my flash fiction published with Havok three times. And I just released my first children's picture book!
