Free on Amazon Kindle - A Second Edition with New Cover - Ends Today.

A Carpet of Purple Flowers: Book One on Kindle 
(Second Edition - includes an extra chapter)


Two Worlds - Three Hearts - Four Souls.

Editorial Reviews -

A truly unique premise that merges the spiritual with the paranormal in a very interesting way. I highly recommend. 
— Cate Hogan, Developmental Editor, Washington Post & USA Today

Fantasy fans will wait eagerly for the next instalment in McCartney’s series, enchanted by the complicated love story and the surprising ending. 
— Amy Dittmeier, Booklist, American Library Association

This is the first paranormal romance I have ever read and found it an enjoyable introduction to the genre. It has an original premise and a collection of strong characters. The ending is packed with drama and the ultimate resolution is a surprise. The plot and subplots are strong.

She ponders before leaping!

Ahmet Sali ~ Photography

“No, this is not the beginning of a new chapter in my life; this is the beginning of a new book! That first book is already closed, ended, and tossed into the seas; this new book is newly opened, has just begun! Look, it is the first page! And it is a beautiful one!” 
― C. JoyBell C.

Blessings on New Year's Eve 2019

Wow! A year has passed already. I honestly can't believe how time flies. 

In 2016, I was settling into my new home. In 2017, I went through a dark night of the soul, waking up to things, situations that no longer served my highest good. In 2018, I began my healing, and now, I'm really looking forward to entering 2019 to further heal and complete my passions, creative adventures in both art and writing. It has taken so much strength and reflection to get this far and I'm really excited, what an incredible journey of learning, thus far.  

This new year, I will, I will, I will:
  • complete my second book and self-publish by the summer
  • create canvas art
  • create an oracle deck
  • add more writing on Wattpad
  • complete my online classes

  • pamper self 
  • exercise more
  • drink more water
  • beautify areas around me

Create a Happiness Jar
Image result for happiness jar
Elizabeth Gilbert, an author best known for her 2006 memoir, 
Eat, Pray, Love started the idea. 
Use a journal to stick notes in from the jar. Add photos, flowers, etc. Create a journal for every year made from pure happy moments. It really does help to remember all the little blessings given.

Not only will this practice help you learn to be grateful for the small, every day, sweet moments in your life and to be present in the moment, but it can provide comfort and inspiration on those awful days. All you have to do is sit down and pull out one of your notes. Wrap those small but shining jewels of happiness around your soul and let it provide you with the knowledge that you will have those special moments in the future as well. By recording the best parts of your life, you can change the way you remember each unique day.

Wish Tree
This is a favorite of mine, the beautiful wishing tree. I keep one in my living room, I hang affirmations, crystals, pretty wish tags from the slender branches. Eye candy and lifts me up every day. Too gorgeous to be used just at weddings. *winks* Pictures below...
