Author Spotlight – Cait Marie

Cait Marie is a good friend, a wonderful person, and an amazing author. I have been lucky to work with her in Coffee House Writers. She is one of the busiest people I know. She works at Functionally Fictional and at YA Books Central. She also somehow manages to do a blog of her own.

She does all of this while in College, being a freelance editor, and producing her own books. I have personally been allowed to be one of her ARC readers in the past. Her books are so well written. I have definitely enjoyed what I have read by her.

When we asked her about what got her started, Cait had this to say. “I started writing one day partially out of boredom and partially because a book I read didn’t go exactly how I wanted it to. I decided to write my own book so I could include anything I wanted, but I had no idea at the time that I would end up here. I only wrote academically before that and hated it. However, I have always loved reading. My love of books is really what got me where I am today. It’s why I started Functionally Fictional, which led to me becoming involved in the book community.”

When asked why She chose to be a Indie, Here is Cait’s response. “Through Functionally Fictional, I work with indie authors to promote their books. Then I started working as part of the indie staff at YA Books Central, and I kind of fell into this amazing group of authors. They were so encouraging, and I saw the support they had for one another, and it really made me decide on this route. Plus, I like the control aspect of it all. It’s my book, and it’s getting out into the world how I want it to.”

About her hobbies and such ,”Most of my time goes to reading and writing, but I also love creating spreads in my bullet journal, painting, listening to music, going to concerts, and watching movies and TV.” When asked how she deals with Writer’s Block her response was “I don’t really suffer from writer’s block per se. It’s more that I have some days I just can’t/don’t want to write. I’m working on more consistent writing habits. For example, I am trying to write for an hour at least four days a week. I joined a group that does writing sprints four nights a week, which is helping a lot.”

Cait lives in Indiana with her two obnoxious cats – Koda and Azriel, Whom she loves greatly. We here at Fae Corps look forward to seeing what Cait Marie will be doing in the future. Be sure to check her current listings at https://caitmarieh.com/my-books/

Author Spotlight Beverly L Anderson

First I apologize to all of the authors who have been on hold for months. We had to showcase the anthology authors and this got put on hold as I was too busy to do what needed done. I am back at it. I will be going through one a week on Thursday until I get you all.

We are starting with the amazing Beverly L Anderson. Her answers to our questions tightly match the Bio on her Amazon page. And I found the Bio more fun…so I am sharing it. Her books look pretty and have some neat ideas behind them. She said that she, when faced with writer’s block just changes to something else until it passes.

Beverly L. Anderson started writing at the age of eleven, and when she did it was obvious she wasn’t going to stick to the every day. Her first story, written in a series of spiral notebooks, was about a kidnapping. There’s no surprise that these days, she favors the dark corners of the psyche over the happy and fluffy parts. To better understand the mind of her characters, Beverly specialized in psychology and counseling in school, and holds a master’s degree in the latter.

Beverly’s other hobbies include gaming of all types, transgender and autism advocacy, and writing fanfiction. She herself has gone on the journey of self-discovery in the last few years, finally pinning down her identity after nearly thirty years of searching. Coming out as bigender and pansexual was one of the hardest things she’s ever done, but it gave her the confidence to become herself even more. An autistic parent of two autistic kids, and an eclectic pagan, Beverly finds herself at odds with a lot of what society calls “normal”. Her interest in the BDSM community began as simple curiosity, but has led her to the road to finding a place for herself there as a switch.

We are glad to spotlight Beverly and hope that she continues to produce books to brighten this world.

A Friday poem sent to us

Poem by Chrys Indigo Minter

Panics of terror coursing through my veins
Not knowing fake from the real
Who would take the blame
Running to and fro
I’m at a loss of words
This person in the mirror before me
Man this is absurd.
My body form I don’t notice
Now all muscular

I have been transformed into something else
Like I’ve been reborn.
My wings are now ablaze this is something new
I’m normally not fearful but if you saw me
You’d want to run too.
Asleep I was a fairy dreaming of the moon
And the clouds above
Then the dream turned dark and dread
Like the sandman went all rogue
My skin felt like lava
Intriguing to myself
Now able to creep on fours
And walk on twos
What is this form? I’m amused
Eyes glint gold
I’m feeling bold
Stories will be told
They may call the fairy paddy wagon..
The whispers and stares
As they notice that overnight
This mere fairy was transformed into…
A dragon.©️

Lost Legends, an upcoming Indie novel Behind the Scenes

So we got to interview Cait Marie about her upcoming book release. She gave us a behind the scenes to share with you, our readers.

Time to talk about what goes on behind the writing and how The Lost Legends came to be. Some of the most frequent questions I get are…


“Where do all the story ideas come from?”
The idea for The Lost Legends came from a dream, as cliche as that sounds. I’ve always had really random dreams that I thought would make good movies or books. Well, I had a dream that I was a princess sailing with pirates to look for a group of fae called the Nihryst. In the dream, it was actually the Night Court from the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. To make it my own, I completely removed the fae element, which was the only similarity to that series. Most of the original idea is still there though.


The biggest difference is that it was originally just about Ada looking for the Nihryst in the one book. Then, I added Shane’s POV for myself to know what happened in the kingdom while Ada was gone. Shane’s story not only helped develop the first book but helped create a bigger story arc for what’s now going to be a trilogy. In fact, as of right now, Shane will have more chapters in book two than Ada.

“How long did it take you to write The Lost Legends? What were those writing habits like?”
It took me a little over three months to write the first draft, but there wasn’t a lot of consistent writing. There were weeks that I didn’t touch it. I wrote 30,000 words the first week… I go through writing binges; I will write 10,000 words in a couple days, then nothing for a while. That’s actually something I need to work on.

“Where did the inspiration come from?”


A mashup of a bunch of things. I love Disney, I love the story of Robin Hood, and I love Pirates of the Caribbean. To write, I created a Pinterest board and playlist. I made a few aesthetic boards as well, which I’ll share below.

The Lost Legends is now available on Amazon!

Meet the Author : Rose J. Fairchild

According to Rose her submisson was inspired by my daughter’s loss of her first top front tooth. “As she gently placed it in the little box we use for the tooth fairy, she said with tears in her eyes, ‘I’m really going to miss being a kid.’ “


“Rose lives in upstate NY with her husband, two kids, and furry companions. She works at a local library where she acts as a clerk and does all the children’s programming, both on and offsite. Currently, she is working on a retelling of “Beauty and the Beast,” which is one of her all-time favorite fairy tales! The main character is based on her grandmother—one of the strongest people she’s ever had the pleasure of knowing in her life. She (along with Rose’s fiery daughter) is her muse and an inspiration to women everywhere. It has been joyous to include some of her life experiences in Rose’s novel, and she hopes someday to share it with the world”

We are truly excited to have Rose’s Fairy Dust in Through the Sunshine.

Book Announcement : The Lost Legends by Cait Marie


✨Blurb✨
A plague. A prophecy. A centuries-long curse.
All her life, Princess Adalina heard tales of the legendary, immortal warriors known as the Nihryst. Cursed and bound to a deck of tarot cards by her ancestors, the Nihryst were stranded on a remote island nearly a century and a half earlier.

Her brother, Prince Shane, is destined to rule the kingdom of Detmarya. Though preparing for this role has encompassed his entire life, control of the kingdom may come sooner than expected due to their father’s sporadic behavior.

Discovering the king’s plan to set a war in motion with a mass assassination, Ada unwittingly joins a crew of pirates in search of the only beings powerful enough to stop him: the Nihryst. Meanwhile, Shane and a group of underground rebels make a haunting discovery of a plague infecting the streets of Detmarya.

With a looming deadline to save multiple kingdoms and thousands of innocent lives, both royal siblings join quests worthy of Ada’s beloved fairy tales.
