Tales, both epic and ordinary, are waiting for you. Whether you are a human, a wizard, a fairy, or a bard, you are welcome here in my little nook of writerly adventures. 


“I cannot explore the galaxy nor the ocean floor, but I can explore, everyday of my life, the vastness that is human imagination. And so I will.” - Daniela Sylmae


Tales of the fantasy genre grow longer and longer, but what if all you want is a short yet meaningful adventure through the fantasy realm?

In an upcoming collection of short stories, Daniela Sylmae offers those with a busy life to take a moment and to explore the fantasy world. From the Elwood elves of the snowy Lundar Mountain to the busy city life of a magical metropolis, the reader will spend just a moment of their life daydreaming, away from the mundane repetitiveness of reality. 


Along the way, through the eyes of rich, dynamic characters, the reader may also realize that life in the fantasy realm may not be so different than our own world. In turn, the reader may realize reading the fantasy genre is worth the time. After all, as Dr. Seuss once said, “Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of the telescope.”
