My name is Fiona Wheeler, and you guessed it, I'm the Glitter Witch.
This silly author here, Magenta Wilde, has written a book -- with more to come -- about my daughter Poppy Blue. I'm thrilled because I love seeing my sweet red-haired girl (she is a natural blonde, I must tell you!) getting the attention she deserves.
But what about me, I had to ask? I'm older, I'm sassier, and I have so many more stories and so much advice to share.
So Magenta Wilde was kind enough to let me post blog entries on her author page. (It's the smartest decision that woman has ever made, let me tell you!)
First off, I'm the mother of Poppy Blue. She's in her late twenties. Okay, maybe she's thirty. But let's not dwell on that. And no, I am not telling you my age. That Magenta Wilde disclosed it in her book, Giving Up the Ghost, and I have used my magic to cast a spell over you so you will not remember how old I am. I'm so youthful and vivacious, you'd never believe it anyways.
As for me, I am married to my longtime sweetheart, Tom Wheeler. He and I run a antiques and collectibles shop, called Thingamajigs (I came up with that) in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Poppy has her own store, Blue's Boutique, across the way from my shop. Frankly I think the name needs a bit more pizzazz -- mine is a bit more of a conversation starter, don't you think?, but that's a battle for another day.
Tom is not Poppy's father, however.
Joe Blue was.
(That's his real name, too. It's shortened from a long Polish name.)
It's complicated. He and I divorced when Poppy was just a child, and then he died when she was a teenager. Thanks to Poppy's ability to see and talk to ghosts, she still chats with her father. (I just know they're talking about me.) Unfortunately my ghost-spotting and spectral-hearing skills are nowhere near as finely developed as my girl's are.
But I have other gifts...
And I will share them with you. I have so much advice to make your life a much better one. I invite you -- wait, no, I insist -- that you return here often for more of my guidance in things both magical and mundane.
