Jenari Skye Banner

Welcome to Skye Castle's library! Please enjoy perusing its shelves of books written by yours truly, Jenari Skye. Should it be unclear, Jenari Skye is my fantasy pen name. The book entitled My Thankful Beginning ~ A Shift in Focus was originally written under this pen name, but I have moved that ministry under Jen Kramer and the Thankful Heart blog.


Queen of Thought

Queen of Thought is intended to be the first novel in a christian sci-fi fantasy trilogy about a young woman's journey in which she discovers how to truly fight for what's right. I have completed the first draft of this novel, but the second draft is a major overhaul (including a few main character name changes). You can view an excerpt of the first draft of Queen of Thought here. I welcome any questions or comments on the work! If you are interested in its genesis... you will have to refer to the Private Library!

Naya is a young human woman, infused with her sister's power and raised by elves - a forbidden practice. This fact is hidden from most and overlooked by the sentients who know her; they hope Naya can achieve the magical prowess to eradicate the malevolent sorceress Ravenna who styles herself the Queen of Thought. When Naya seeks to free a spirit from one of the Ravenna's traps, events backfire and Eliriel - Naya's mother - is taken. Bereft of her mother and teacher, Naya must hone and hasten her thoughts and instincts to rescue Eliriel - and face the time-tested adversary she had been raised to fight. When she discusses life's struggles with Ethetar, a naiad who joins her fight in an unconventional way, she is intrigued by the possibilities of a different point of view. Naya sees power in the way Ethetar fights - except Ethetar denies her own power and says she relies on the Master - one on whom she claims even Naya can rely to defeat Ravenna. Ethetar's invitation attracts Naya in the midst of her world-weight anxiety, but she can only assume such reliance would simply replace Ravenna with another tyrant. With the world quickly falling to Ravenna's wiles and forces, Naya must decide where she stands, rescue Eliriel somehow, and find a way to defeat Ravenna once and for all.


My Thankful Beginning ~ A Shift in Focus

Originally published under my pen name, Jenari Skye, My Thankful Beginning ~ A Shift in Focus is a devotional journal adapted from the blog Thankful Heart (by Jen Kramer) designed to spur you on a journey to write your own thankful thing each day. This practice is one of the tools that God used to deliver me from anxiety and depression, and I highly recommend it to any believer, no matter their struggle.

" everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." — 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Everything is a lot of things. I knew that I wasn't thankful for everything, but I also knew that I wanted to follow God's will. So, I decided to take it one step at a time, and to write about one thing that I was thankful for each day until I reached 1,000 (I figured that would take enough time to get in the habit). This book is the first 100 of those things, and is designed to be a springboard for you to begin your own journey toward a thankful heart in Christ Jesus.

My Thankful Beginning ~ A Shift in Focus will help you get started, and will offer some guidelines and structure, should you choose to use it that way. It may be your first step in shifting your everyday focus toward Christ, and in learning how to practically apply thankfulness in your walk with Him.
