Today, we celebrate Ostara, Goddess of Springtime and Fertility. Pagan Anglo-Saxons made offerings of colored eggs to Ostara on the Vernal Equinox. She is associated with the Moon Hare or rabbit, eggs, dawn, and the east.

Several of the students I met this month asked me to use their names in upcoming books. Sneak peek-Spell Struck has a new character named Aidan, and a another new character named after a Hindu creation goddess whose name, in Hawaiian, means "spear carrier." Can anyone guess the name?
My mailbox overflowed with treasure yesterday-two Manilla envelopes stuffed with thank you letters from students at Raymond Cree Middle School. My heartfelt thanks to Language Arts teachers, Kristen Goerzen and Terri Green for forwarding the notes, and to all the students who wrote them. I look forward to my next visit at Raymond Cree! ~Ariella Moon
It's official! I am now under contract with Astraea Press for my second book, Spell Struck, the sequel to Spell Check. I don't have a release date yet, but hope to have the book out by June so everyone can add Spell Struck to their summer reading.
