About Starr Sayles The Author

Featured

I am a mother, grandmother and a great-grandmother. I love to read, cook and play “World of Warcraft”.

I love Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Myths, and Legends. Through in some murder, suspense, and gratuitous sex and there you have a good read.

I was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1948. We moved to Pennsylvania and I graduated Farrell High School in 1966.

I took Business Management at Kent State, Graphic Arts at Bellevue University, and I am studying, History, Classical Literature and Government at Hillsdale University.

My favorite quotes are below;

“The most essential gift for a good writer is a built-in, shock-proof shit detector.” — Ernst Hemingway.

“We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.”

Ernest Hemingway

The Revenge OF The Djinn

“Wiki describes Ifrit: Ifrit—also spelled, efreet, efrite, ifreet, afreet, afrite, and afrit (Arabic: ʻIfrīt: عفريت, pl ʻAfārīt: عفاريت)—are supernatural creatures in Arabic and Islamic folklore. They are in a class of infernal Jinn noted for their strength and cunning. An ifrit is an enormous winged creature of fire, either male or female, who lives underground and frequents ruins. Ifrits live in a society structured along ancient Arab tribal lines, complete with kings, tribes, and clans. They generally marry one another, but they can also marry humans. While ordinary weapons and forces have no power over them, they are susceptible to magic, which humans can use to kill them or to capture and enslave them. As with the jinn, an ifrit may be either a believer or an unbeliever, good or evil, but he is most often depicted as a wicked and ruthless being.”

I had started to work on this story about two years ago, but it was put up because of me being very ill at that time.

This is a love story, between a Djinn and an extremely beautiful young girl. The Djinn never intended falling in love with any human. He had actually been planning on using her to enact revenge on her father. But even for a Djinn life never goes as you plan it. Before you ask there will be murder, paranormal sex, broken promises and of course revenge.

 

Image3I am doing this story as an in-between while I am working on my novella, “Jalenna”. I’ll keep my readers updated as to how the Jaleena” and ” The Revenge Of The Djinn” are coming along.

Love You All, Starr

Writing, Book Covers & Story Pictures

Been busy writing and editing. Some of the “Lillith” story may seem different, but really it is just rearranged some. I am still having trouble with a “Book Cover”. I don’t like most of the ones I have come up with. I have more story-line pictures to do but they seem a bit easier than the “Book Cover”, issue.

I do so enjoy writing “Twisted Myths & Legends”, short stories can pop up in the mind so easily. It looks as though two weeks to finish ” Twisted Myths & Legends”, keeping to the timing for release on target.

I have been working on a full -length novel, but it will be a while before I can give sneak peaks of that. I look to have the novel come out in about 3 or 4 months.

signing off for now!!!!!!
