Meet the Author

M. K. Theodoratus has been intrigued by fantasy since she discovered the Oz books. She has traveled through many fantasy worlds since then. When she's not reading about other writer's worlds, she's creating her own -- mostly that of the Far Isle Half-Elven where she explores the social and political implications of population genetics on a hybrid people. She also writes about gargoyles, demons, and ghosts in her alternative world of Andor.

A sixth grade English assignment introduced her to story writing. The teacher asked for a short story. She got an incomplete, 25-page Nancy Drew pastiche which turned into a novel the next summer. Theodoratus has been addicted to writing stories ever after. While she has several novels waiting for editing in her computer, she likes writing long short stories more. You can see the results at her author page.

You can learn more about the world of the Far Isles Half-Elven at http://www.half-elven.com

My author website is http://www.mktheodoratus.com There you can learn about my other writing, including There Be Demons which is scheduled for publication by Grumpy Dragon Press. It's in the middle of edits as I write this.

    This book is not what I was expecting at all. Thinking back, I can't recall exactly what I WAS expecting anymore! I think what I actually got was so great that it overshadowed all other expectations."Noticing Jamilla" was flawlessly written. The characters were very well developed and fleshed out for such a short story.
    Cassy Mae goes to live with her GrannyJo after her mom dies. She doesn't believe in the "bad juju" her granny vehemently warns her about and actually thinks she is completely off her rocker.
    Then, she notices Jamilla...

    An Intriguing Read!

    ''Noticing Jamilla: A Tale of Andor'' is the kind of novel that sucks you into it within just a few pages, weaving a captivating tale of teen drama, magic juju, emotional upheaval and intrigue. M. K. Theodoratus takes the reader on an engaging ride, drawing you into the world of Cassy Mae and her move to Docket's Diggings and all of the weird, strange happenings that come with it. 

    The novel is well-written with a sharp, lush tone and vivid imagery that perfectly paints each scene with a fine tipped brush. The book uses strong dialogue and authentic characters to draw the plot along, adding layer after layer to the story and bringing this uniquely enjoyable tale to life. The author does a wonderful job of taking Cassy, Jamilla, GrammyJo and Lydia Markhem on a truly entertaining ride... adding in excitement, emotional drama, suspense, magic and the supernatural to create an exceptionally enjoyable read. 

    Overall, I had a great time reading this and would certainly recommend it to other readers. It was well-written, intriguing and well worth the read.

    I love fantasy books and this is fantasy at its best! The book was so interesting, I simply couldn't put it down and ended up reading it in one go. Different twists and turns are making it that much enjoyable. I really got tied to the characters and I have a quiet wish that the author will follow up with a sequel! 5 Stars
