The Return of Ebon Lupus

Here he comes, my Elven Lord

Striding through the mist,
Head held high, proud and strong
The Lord of all the Sidhe.
There was a time, not long ago,
When things were not as this,
When Ebon lived beyond the Vale
In cities made for men.
Born a Sidhe in times long past, 
His youth was spent in Elven lands,
But then a Portal he did find
And the quest for knowledge pulled him through.
For many years in many lands
To return, in vain he tried.
My Magick means and hidden ways,
He sought to travel home.
Finally, one Hallow’s Eve, 
When the veil between was thin,
His lonely cry was heard at last,
The Portal brought him home.
Now laughter rings throughout the Vale,
As Ebon tunes his pipes,
Forgotten music heard once more,
The Lord of the Sidhe is home.

About Susan McCaskill

Susan (or Sue, as she prefers to be called), was born in post war England, and lived there until the age of nine, when she and her mother emigrated to Canada. Her father died when she was nine, and left a huge impression on her. Both her parents encouraged her to read, and learn. She has always believed in fairies and elves, and probably always will, and as a child, she saw things many others didn't, and as a result she was thought to be a little strange.

Sue currently lives on beautiful Vancouver Island with her husband and three demanding cats.

Although she has been in Canada for so many years, she still misses the English and Welsh countryside, and because of this, her novel is based in the ancient, picturesque town of Betws-Y-Coed.

About herself, she says:

"I think I was born a writer, and got more confidence thanks to my grade five teacher, who was wonderful, and fostered my love for writing. I didn't write for almost 40 years, because of raising kids, life happenings, the usual drama. I started again sporadically ten years ago, and finished my first Mid Grade fantasy in 2013. Currently working on book 2.
