About Jamie Ferguson
My writing focuses on characters. I've created stories about ghosts, clones, monsters, escape artists, mermaids, circus performers ... I'm all over the map. But in every single story I do my utmost to get into the minds and hearts of my characters. I love to put them in awful situations to see how they feel, and how they think. I want them to agonize over their choices, and I want what they choose - or don't choose - to matter. I want the reader to feel joy when a character succeeds, and to cry when they don't - just like I do when I'm writing the story.

Jump into the waves, and enter the world of Faerie!
On a rock by the shore sits a mermaid fair
Dreaming of her lost lover as she combs her hair
Kelpies, and selkies, and the great snakes of the sea
All stop and listen as she sings of a love never to be
For the sailor she saved from those dark, storm-tossed waves
Got back on his ship, and sailed away
Now the mermaid's alone, with broken-hearted dreams
And far, far away the sailor stares out at the sea
Fifteen stories about mermaids, kelpies, and other magical water creatures.
What if the Loch Ness monster is more than a myth?
Where did the Lady of the Lake go after leaving Avalon?

Enjoy the magic and wonder of these watery tales of Faerie!
What if you followed a path through a city park, and found yourself in another land? What if the archway you just passed is really a portal to Faerie? What if the guardian of an opening into our world has perished, and left the doorway unattended?
If you catch a glimpse of the Faery Queen
Consider whether you should remain unseen
If you come across a faery ring
Listen to the wind laugh, and murmur and sing
But beware, for if you enter the world of the Fae
You may have no choice but to stay...
Walk through the doorway and into sixteen different worlds of magic and enchantment.
Enter the world of Faerie!
The summer sun bathes the earth in warmth and light,
Faeries dance under the moon at night.
Cross through the portal into a land ancient, beautiful, and wild.
See the wonders that enticed the stolen child.
Come away, O reader! To the Realm of Faerie.
But if you want to make it back home, you had better be wary…
This collection includes twenty tales of faeries and magic set in our world–and in others.
Do you own a cat or better yet do you THINK that you actually own one? Take a quick look, and see if that cat doesn't flick one ear, or twitch their tail, or even briefly cock one vertical eye into a kind of a gun-slit winky-peek radar-honing right in your general direction - while all the while letting on like that cat doesn't even notice you.
So, seeing that your cat is doing all of that watching, maybe you had better grab yourself a look at these nine magical cat tales. Read them to yourself or better yet read them aloud to your cat and see if you can't irritate one of those low and rumbling growls of indignation that only cats can seem to make happen.
Just watch and see.
