Dancing Alone

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Carrie Miller

This was originally a pencil sketch, which I scanned and darkened in Photoshop. I then printed it out on my lovely laser printer. That copy I painted with watercolors, and re-scanned. The paper I used was normal printer paper; I am sparing with my watercolor paper. She is a princess, I think, or wants to be. This may be her dream of a ball or just dressing up and pretending. Either way, she is still dancing alone.

Chosen Gifts - Prologue

This is the prologue to Chosen Gifts (working title), a novel I have been writing since eigth grade (9 years). The story has gone through about 5 major revisions, but heart of the story has always been the same. Mists will be longer soon, but this is the bare bones giving a small history to Eilayna, the main character, and her sister Joilynn.

Through the Woods

This poem was inspired by a course I took in fairy tales and folklore. I was particularly intrigued by the idea present in our cultural mythology that states that forests/woods are bad places. Hence this poem.

Chosen Gifts - Chapter One

This chapter introduces Eilayna and Joilynn, and concerns itself a little with three people who will be important later, Jerec, Sitarma, and Queen Consort Karola.

Chosen Gifts - Chapter Two

In Chapter Two we learn about the girls' history and why they were given up. This chapter is far shorter than I would like, and will be longer when I get the chance.


This is an original short story. It is not yet completed, and the part I am uploading ends just before the first mini-climax. I am going to list it as high fantasy, although the magic is loosely based on Native American beliefs and practices.

A Child of Ash and Blood

This is a retelling of the Cinderella fairy tale, only much darker than the familiar Disney mice and fairy godmother. I was inspired to write this after a literature class focusing on fairy tales.


This is an unfinished tale about a girl who is outcast from her village and returns, years later, on her journey to become a Master Mage.
