The next briarlore tale

The Briarlore Tales are original, illustrated fairy tales that take us into the wild places of the soul where we truly belong. They remind us of who we really are and help us along our path.

Each one of these books addresses part of the soul's journey, following a character through an adventure, a transition, and ultimately coming out on the other side, having spiritually matured. The books always take place in the woods, in nature, a place I love more than anything else. I hope these books help others not only travel through their own soul journeys, but that they also inspire a love for the natural world in readers.

I'm Yancy Lael (ly-ELLE) the author of The Poison Box and creator of the Briarlore series. I'm a storyteller and an artist. I've always been the record keeper in my family, the historian, the collector of tales. I cherish my stories, and the stories that come to me through the Muses. Stories are the best kind of soul medicine we have in this world. 

I make stories with photographs, art, music, and of course, in my favorite way: with words. And I find all my inspiration in nature. I live (even if only metaphorically) in the deep, dark forest, roaming the endless deer trails alongside my closest companions, the great horned owls and my wild canine friends. This is the place where all my work is born.
