Ever wonder what happened to Mel when Xena took over her body in the XENA SCROLLS? Verda answers that one for us in this entertaining little story that finds Mel in a rather compromising position in more ways than one as she gets up close and personal with a certain ancient bard and has to deal with the infamous reputation of her deadly ancestor. This is well-written and clever, beautifully complementing the TV episode. DO NOT MISS! - 11 pgs., 3/23/00

**ENEMY WITHIN (THE) by Verda -- [Alt]
The sequel to Verda's debut story THESE DREAMS finds artist Samantha McBride and her partner executive Tess Richmond happy and very much in love as they start to make a life together but that happiness is soon put on hold when Tess receives an unexpected appeal from an unlikely source forcing her to revisit a painful past in order to try to give an innocent child the promise of a future. Verda does a really nice job with the Tess/Samantha relationship here, making it realistic, loving and playful. The supporting players are well-defined and interesting in their own right contributing to an emotional, well-paced storyline. Improving on the original, this sequel is a very entertaining offering that comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 37 pgs., 4/18/99

THESE DREAMS by Verda -- [Alt]
A very nice debut from a brand new bard, this contemporary uber story begins with an exciting surprise for a young artist named Samantha when a friend informs her that she's seen "Blue Eyes" - the mysterious woman that has haunted Samantha's dreams since childhood and that has become the major subject of most of her drawings. Thrilled by the possibility that Blue Eyes might be a flesh and blood person, Samantha sets out to find her certain the woman must be her destiny. Meanwhile, in another part of town, executive Tess Richmond is busy planning the latest attack on her father's company, determined to make the man pay for his cruelty toward her and her mother. Aware that the man has hired a private investigator to look into her affairs, Tess is delighted to hear about the pretty young blonde that has been asking about her. Coming face to face at last with the young woman, the shrewd executive decides to teach her a lesson the blonde wont soon forget, never even suspecting the terrible mistake she's about to make and the fragile heart she'll decimate in the process. Verda gives us here a poignant story of revenge and misundertandings and the healing power of love. A riveting storyline that will keep you hitting that pagedown key :) DO NOT MISS! [See the sequel THE ENEMY WITHIN] - 33 pgs., 2/14/99
