Main Character, Not the Narrator

Read on wattpad
A dialogue is not spoken by a main character in the story, Vasalisa, the Frog Princess In my enhancement and re-imaging creates and carves an inactive persona, damsel in distress. With Vasalisa as an absent voice, I wrote concerns for her and her struggle through contact by characters with her.


As for the writer, fun to conceive what other characters see, hear, and feels about a main character's struggles and concerns while helping this silent distressed character, who is strong than any of these think.

Soon pre-sales for PURSUED will be posted on Amazon and Smashwords.com.

The narrator of my stories? Why?

In whose perspective do I write:

Usually, and most often -->  a protagonist as a narrator in first voice and the present tense. BECAUSE as a child and young adult; I was a female --> second to a male; lady --> second to a lad; and woman --> second to a man; she --> second to he. The hero leads and solved the stories, not heroines -- who is also second to the hero. I am her --> again second to he; and, she --> also second to he.

As a person, my being and reality pushed from the frame of who I was and need a place in the story, any plot. So I write for a second class audience, with my second class voice - about strong maidens or older matrons, who battle against oppression for success.

In my last piece, PURSUED, a fractured Russian folktale, the ugly frog skin is burnt of a princess by a selfish prince, a fool. I did use male voices because this fool needs help: the fool who does not understand balance and equality from an equal partnership only female beauty for his prestige.

A villain, the antagonist, can take over a story, we know their paths in all the other stories we hear and read. Adventure, change, and awareness without a heavy dominate, destructive villain, who is voice dominate; they are present. We need to conquer their messages as does Faery Rhyonna, who rids Zzuf in RHYONNA'S FRIGHT from her realm.
So, I write about strong maidens or older matrons who overcome tyranny and suppression facing ignorant dominance. My protagonists make change in their lives for us to witness as reader and listeners so we can make changes in our lives.

I write fantasies about faeries, elves, trolls in the spirit realm, my life analogies or metaphors for these stories told.
