Book Description

 January 28, 2013

Off the coast of Lanai, far beyond the sailboats, there is a hidden world beneath the beryl-blue sea, the marvelous kingdom of Moku-ola, a place where man and beast live in harmony.  Unknown and forbidden to those living above the surface, it has never been discovered....until now.

Tessa, a curious teenager with a taste for adventure roams the sandy beaches of Lanai. Feeling lost and hurt she longs for meaning and a place in this world. By chance, Tessa encounters a mysterious man who appears to be drowning. The attempted rescue puts her own life in danger as she is abducted and dragged out to sea.

Far beneath the oceans surface, Tessa is brought to the frightening and wondrous land of Moku-ola. As the dangers of this world threaten her very survival, Tessa must overcome the barriers of self-doubt to discover the keys to her royal destiny.

Dr. Fairfield weaves a fantastical tale of adventure and discovery. In Makai Queen we learn the journey isn’t always easy, but the destination is worth it!





About the Author
Hi everyone! I am a licensed psychologist, author and speaker living in the Pacific Northwest. I grew up in Southern California and love being near the ocean. Some of my fondest memories of childhood are of swimming and snorkeling around Catalina Island. I have three grown children, three grandchildren and four dogs. Life is good! I’m very excited to introduce my first novel, Makai Queen which combines my love for the ocean with a wonderful fantasy carrying a positive message to young adults.




PLEASE WELCOME TO TARA TO BOOKHOUNDS



THOUGHTS ON FORGIVENESS:

Forgiveness is a theme woven into Makai Queen and a topic near and dear to my heart. Forgiveness is about so much more than what is going on between you and the person who hurt you, it’s about the state of your heart. When you harbor anger or bitterness for someone in your heart, your thoughts and emotions are captured by that situation, keeping you trapped, spiritually, emotionally and mentally.

Forgiving moves you forward, frees you and allows healing to occur. When you forgive you escape resentments trap and are able to move forward. When you hold on to hurts, you are the one who suffers, not the person who offended or harmed you. Take a moment and examine your heart, it may be time to let go of the negative emotions holding you hostage. Be free to fully step into the person you were created to be.
