Matchmaker of Magics is a YA fantasy novel, the first of The Bleaken Series, which, in my opinion, could be enjoyed eually well by both YA and adult readers.It is an exciting and fast-moving story in which the author succeeds in blending magical powers with human emotion and endeavour extremely well. It is set partly in the tiny village of Bleaken, and partly in the capital city of Verdigreen.

The main character is Sacha Bleaken, a young woman born into a family whose ancestors founded the villag

The world the author creates in "Matchmaker of Magics" is fantastical and original. There is also a realism in her writing, especially in her descriptions of the heroine's reactions to the sometimes terrifying, sometimes heart breaking situations that happen to her. It was this realism that really kept me engaged and I could relate to the character in a way that was surprising given the setting of the story in a strange and dangerous other world. I appreciate a good story told from a female pers ...more

Mara is proud to have been born and raised in the Pacific Northwest where two of her favorite authors also reside (Ursla LeGuin and Patricia McKillip). Whether playing the guitar (rather badly), or painting, or writing, or cooking, Mara builds time for creativity in her life.
