There once was a little firefly who became lost in the woods when his tail no longer lit up at night. But then he met a fairy with purple hair who promised to take him on the adventure of a lifetime. Together they journeyed to the Enchanted Kingdom of the Fairy Queen, in the hope she would have just enough magic to restore light to his broken tail.
"I was sent this book right before the birth of my daughter. I cannot wait to read it to her! The Fairy and the Firefly is enchanting and magical. The story highlights friendship, kindness, and adventure. The illustrations are beautiful. The story highlights an unlikely friendship between a fairy and a firefly who has lost his light journey together to meet the Fairy Queen who may be able to restore light and help the firefly find their way in the dark. It was happy and uplifting to read and made me smile. Highly recommend, especially if you like fairies!"
"The Fairy & the Firefly is a MUST HAVE in your children's library. The message to always show kindness is skillfully woven into an adventure-filled tale. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful, while allowing the imagination to build upon the colorful scenes. This book will delight your kids (or grandkids!)"
"In this joyous tale from Elizabeth Dylan Bercovici, we see kindness in full effect. A fairy of the forest finds a firefly trapped in a spider’s web. Upon freeing the firefly, the fairy finds out that the firefly’s tail does not light. Thus, they join together in an adventure to visit the Fairy Queen to restore the firefly’s gift. The true adventure of this book is the way Bercovici maintains a spirited tone of kindness throughout the book. This spirit never lags or falls into unconscious jabs. To the end, we are treated to a wonderful embracing of the world. Coupled with soft, luxurious art by Naoko Matsunaga, The Fairy and the Firefly is a book you’ll want to read again and again, whether with children or to sate the wonder within you."

Joseph Campbell once said: “The cave you most fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.”
What is that treasure for you? And what if there was a way to get that treasure, to enter that cave, free of fear? I’ll tell you a secret – there is! From the beginning of time human beings have looked to powers beyond mortal eyes, to the stars, and to legendary Gods and Goddesses, for guidance, inspiration, power and strength.
Most people today regard them as myth, but these great beings have NEVER been gone. And they alone can teach us how to become truly FEARLESS! Go beyond “feeling the fear and doing it anyway!”
Connect with mythic goddesses and power house animals to unleash your primal power. And step into a reality where you’ve transcended all fear.
But how much is true and how much is “make believe?”
If we went back in time a few hundred years, believing in fairies and dragons would have been the most natural thing in the world. They were woven into the culture, part of daily life, their presence was undeniable.
The truth is that fairies hold a special legacy and longstanding connection to humanity. Wouldn’t you like to learn the real story?
The truth behind the myths and legends?
And if you knew, how would it change your life?
What if the transformation you were seeking lay buried in this hidden knowledge?
As we move into this new age, the fae want to make their presence known again. They are here to connect with us, to guide us, to teach us, to help us believe. It’s time to turn to them for empowerment, illumination, and transformation.
We must come back into alignment with these magnificent beings.

This event is over, but the interviews are now available for purchase!
It’s when the first warm ray of light breaks through the horizon, melting the snow, to spark a new beginning. It’s a day that celebrates Brigid, the Celtic Goddess of Poetry, Healing, and the Hearth. Brigid is also lovingly known by creatives as the Goddess of the Bards, she who tends the sacred flame of inspiration.
While many will be lighting a candle to herald in the beginning of spring (because Brigid is all about FIRE) it’s also a day to tell stories, to celebrate the written word, to revel in poetry and song.
Because stories are pure magic.
They’re medicine for the soul.
It’s a time to honor the light that stories bring to our lives.
This Imbolc let’s gather for a day of storytelling, music, poetry and magical tales! Let’s join together to celebrate the Goddess Brigid, fiery goddess of inspiration and sacred creativity.
We’ll delve deeply into the magic of storytelling! You’ll also learn more about the Goddess Brigid and ways you can connect with her on this auspicious day!
A couple months ago, my friend Michael Trotta asked me to be a Guest on his podcast Story Mischief. He said I could talk about any story I wanted!
I chose Robin Hood.
Not because he steals from the rich to give to the poor, but because of what he stands for. He’s a leader who stands in the way of corrupt authority whenever injustice is present.
In this interview, I go in depth into why I think this story is SO important for us in today’s world and why the legend of Robin Hood is one we need to pay attention to now more than ever before.
Robin Hood is a story about the triumph of the human soul over adversity, choosing courage in the face of hardship.
"Through Elizabeth’s incredible gifts of guidance, teaching, and editing; my life has been forever changed. Before working with Elizabeth, I had extreme difficulty ‘finding my words’; both verbal and written. Now, with her phenomenally intuitive assistance, I have published my website, uploaded my 1st meditation video, and written several poems that I will someday publish as an anthology. For me to allow such beautiful poetry to flow through my fingertips has been so freeing and healing to my soul. I am forever grateful to Elizabeth and her magical ways with words.”
"Elizabeth is quite the taskmaster.... but in a good way. This was my first time writing a book, and the subject matter was not easy since it dealt with childhood trauma, Complex PTSD, and my spiritual journey along the way. But Elizabeth's understanding and compassion was exceptional. It meant a lot more work for me, but it was worth it. Thanks to her I now have a published book that has already helped hundreds of people and it's been out less than a month. I will be returning to her for my next book. I am honored to know Elizabeth and grateful I had the privilege to work with her."
"I would urge any writer who struggles with writer’s block or needs encouragement and support to take Elizabeth’s Writing with the Goddesses workshop. I’m sure all writers have experienced those rare occasions when the words just flowed through, as if the story were writing itself. Elizabeth’s Writing with the Goddesses workshop helps to facilitate this same experience, with her invocations, imaginative visualizations and meditations. The writer’s prompts that Elizabeth provides are thoughtfully created for the individual participants. She is a caring and kind mentor. Writing with the Goddesses inspired me to relax into my writing and enjoy the process."
"Writing with the Goddesses is an incredibly powerful program. During my time with Lizzie and the Goddesses, I found myself going deeper and gaining greater clarity on what I am to bring forward. Within this sacred space, I learned to trust my intuition and to bring forward what was speaking to me during each writing session. The mixture of the meditation with freewriting allowed me to ground and center before wandering off into my creative realm. My time spent in the Writing with the Goddesses program was inspirational and transformational."
“Going with Elizabeth was a no brainer. She is thorough and really went line by line (through a 1,000 page manuscript -- mind you) to make my writing shine. She is insanely creative and helpful at getting through writers blocks. Elizabeth took my writing to heart and got deeply interested in my characters, their conflicts, and their points of view. I never had to feel shy or awkward in telling her my ideas. I will continue to choose her again and again anytime that I need editing. She's everything that you could hope for in an editor!”
