It seems natural that since I’ve written many books about Merlin, you all have many questions for me about Merlin and his magic. I love answering your questions, so here are some of the best answers I can give about Merlin and my relationship with the Great Wizard.

The life and world of Merlin have been magical and inspiring. Merlin’s wisdom and faith have taught many valuable lessons. Learn Merlin’s magical lessons that will evolve your life.
My journey with Merlin began with a dream. And I knew from that moment I had been given a story that had to be told.
In honor of this magical opening to a story that means so much to me, I’ll be participating in a virtual tour hosted by three very special independent bookstores.
Now, more than ever, there is a desperate need to be kind, seek positivity, focus on personal growth, and appreciation of our fellow humans.
Every one of Merlin’s 7 Magical Words for a Meaningful Life relies on Love to strengthen it and fill it with significance. Love binds to the other concepts so strongly, in fact, that it’s hard to imagine any them existing without it.
I believe that to be wholly alive is to be grateful—for every breath we take, every song we sing, every person we love, every day we discover.
Generosity is not giving others what they want. Rather, it’s giving away what you yourself want.
Merlin has been a part of my life for more than 20 years. Though he may be but a mythical being to some, and a great character in an epic story for many more, after 12 books devoted to his life and the telling of his story, he is truly much more than that for me. He has grown into a friend, an intimate, and a significant and meaningful part of my life that I have come to relate to on a near-daily basis.
Belief, one of Merlin’s seven most magical words in the universe, can give us comfort in times of chaos, strength in moments of weakness, And direction when we feel lost. Our beliefs — whether they’re a belief in our own abilities, a belief in the nature of the world and the universe, or a belief in a higher power — guide us on our journey through life and allow us to find meaning and purpose in uncertain situations, and discover clarity among the muddled waters of our daily lives.
