I Made Recommendations on Shepherd!

Yes! I made a list of books for learning the old legends. Particularly the things about fairies.

Shepherd is an up and coming book directory that allows authors to make lists of books related to the books they wrote. I’m excited to see how this site will grow!

Check out my list for The Tooth Fairy here!

Everyone Needs a Break Sometimes ☻

For the health and safety of myself and others I will be taking a two week break from all social media.

No. You’re not in trouble. No, you didn’t do anything wrong. No, I’m not mad at you. I just need to focus on what’s in front of me at this time and I know I can’t be as present online as we’re all accustomed to.

Thank you for your understanding. I hope to come back with all sorts of stories from new adventures!

Announcing: ‘The Tooth Fairy’ Is Now Available

The Tooth Fairy by Helen M. Pugsley is now available for purchase on Amazon and at Oblivious Luminescence, the Etsy shop.

When Covid-19 hits, 26-year-old dentist Marlene has to move back from Yuma, Arizona, to her parent’s ranch in Olsen County, Wyoming. There she finds out she is a changeling– A fairy switched with a human child. She learns there is a human girl in Fairyland wearing her face.
The two women become fast friends! Until something much darker happens, Marlene must save her newfound sister, Krysathia, from the fae. While also trying to save herself from both the pandemic and poverty.

This is one fun winter read you do not want to miss out on!

Guess Who Got A New Snapchat Account

It’s me! The one who this website is named after!

Snap me for some shenanigans! Sometimes I’ll actually write and show you some cool things! Either that, or you can watch me stumble through how this app is supposed to work…

C’mon! It’ll be fun!

Gishlan Now Has Its Own YouTube Channel

Because I am obviously insane the Gishlan series now has it’s own YouTube Channel. The Music Of Gishlan can be found by clicking this link. I plan to publish more scores as their corresponding books come into print.

If you would like to try your hand at playing one my public Musescore profile can be found by clicking this link. I would love to hear you perform!

Welcome to Gishlan

The Gishlan series started out with War and Chess and grew into a series after the people who finished it in one single, sleepless, night demanded more. Helen M. Pugsley obliged, and has several more drafts in the works.

Books like these exist because of readers like you.
