Memory's Wake - Chapter Three
She had looked at him as if he were some kind of animal. Worse. A monster. The terror in her eyes crushed his heart, as though the rockslide that closed the cave entrance had also fallen on it.
He had waited for her for so long. He ran the moment he heard the noise, that same gusting howl he remembered from his first night in this world, coming from the very same spot. The night he would never forget. Just how long had it been? The years felt longer for being unable to count them, but shorter for his time spent with the fae. So long, lost in that forest, doubting he’d ever see her again, that his memories of her were even real. But here she was, looking just the same. Same age, same hair, same clothes, even the same bruises as the day he had lost her. He no longer doubted.
The dust from the rockslide cleared and the hunting men who had chased the girls still surrounded him. Them and the dragon. It circled above, waiting for something. To give the men their next order? He shifted

Memory's Wake - Chapter Two
Why has it become so hard just to keep my mind on a simple book? Focus, Eloryn ordered herself. Her eyes skimmed over words without absorbing any meaning. She pinched her forehead and flicked back a page, trying to find the last information she’d actually retained from The Principles and History of Infantry Warfare. Alward no doubt had his reasons for making this dull book part of her syllabus but she couldn’t see how it would ever be much use to her, either for her teaching or in practice. If she was learning things she couldn’t share with her own students, she’d prefer to be studying magic.
Learning used to be easy. As a child, Eloryn already knew everything Alward taught the farmers’ children. She went to classes with them anyway, enjoying being with the other students. They stopped coming at age ten, schooled enough for their lives tending fields. She became a teacher herself after that while her own education continued.

Memory's Wake - Chapter One
Memory's Wake - Chapter One
I’m falling, she thought.
Rushing air tore at her like claws and her stomach churned. She knew only darkness and the horrible, hateful wind.
She jolted into consciousness as if waking from a nightmare, one so real, so intense, it left her soul shaken. All she remembered from her dream was the noise; a furious rumble like the call of a hungry dragon from a dark fairytale. It turned her insides as much as the sensation of falling. Now awake, she couldn’t understand why she still heard it, why she still felt like she plummeted into hell. Some other sound teased her, unidentifiable, lost in the wind.
“What’s happening? Is someone calling me? Where am I?” Pain rampaged through her and the questions fell away. She thought she might throw up.
A voice reached her. Persistent, hysterical, all static and unclear sounds.
She called out, tearing her throat raw with effort, trying to reach through the gusting void to

Or the "Wow, I really do only come here every 2 years now!" post.

Who am I?
My name is Selina Fenech. I've been full time self employed as an artist since about 2002, displaying my work online for longer than that, and drawing and painting even longer. I'm generally your typical girl-geek, with a particular fascination for fantasy themes, of course.
I also run the Fairies and Fantasy Pty Ltd company, merchandising not only my artwork, but that of a few other artists as well. It keeps me busy!

What about my artwork?
I've been mostly doing digital work for the last year. I still do some traditional work with either a watercolour and/or acrylic base painting, with other bits of pencil, pastels, inks, whatever, thrown on top. I'm about to do a big upload here with some of my new pictures so you can see what I've been doing lately :)

Why don't I sell prints on DA?
Because I sell them on my own website! >>>
I make my own art prints, as well as lots of other fun merchandise with my art all for sale at fairiesandfantasy DOT com.

So What's New?
Since my last update things have been good. I bought a house, got married, and I'm expecting my first baby, well, any day now actually!
I'm branching out into some writing as well as my art, and have published an illustrated fantasy novel for young adults called "Memory's Wake" and a paranormal romance novella for young adults called "Emotionally Charged"…
I will have a coffee table book of my art coming out in 2012 (publisher's schedules willing), and have had my artwork published in a number of oracle decks and other publications, including the Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle deck which solely includes my artwork-…

Where AM I actually active online?
I update my personal website whenever I have new art or something to blog about-
I'm quite active on Facebook and love chatting to people there-…
I am probably most chatty on twitter SelinaFenech

Please, if you have something to tell me, don't note me on DA. It might be two years before I'm back again ;) Just email me direct at selina AT selinafenech DOT com.
