I’m Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene and I write fantasy fiction.  This blog is mostly limited to writing and related topics.  It began as part of my “grand experiment” in indie publishing.

Atonement, Tennessee is a 2012 National Novel Writing Month [NaNoWriMo] winner.  It is an urban fantasy.  The copyright is registered, and I published it on Christmas Eve 2013.  If you enjoyed the “Sookie” novels on which an HBO TV series is based, then I think you’ll like Atonement, Tennessee.  However, there aren’t any vampires in Atonement… at least I don’t know of anySteampunk Ballerina Pinterest(Grins)

Tatterdemallian: The Electric Zucchini is urban fantasy with what I call a “steampunkery twist.” (Yes, I made up that word. That’s part of the fun.) This is volume one in a young adult series.  It was a draft for NaNoWriMo 2013 — and I do mean draft. I began to see unexpected twists in the nature of the story. Creating “The Zucchini” is a fun, wild ride!

Foschi_Winter Landscape with Paseant FamilyThe Dead of Winter is very close to my heart. My “real book” — it is a very large work, containing years of effort.  This epic is classic fantasy; the kind I like to call quest-type fantasy. I’m holding this novel back, until I see how “indie” goes with others.

Although I was born in the southeast (USA), I call the desert southwest home.  I left those enchanting lands for a major east coast city.  Two rescue kitties traveled across the county with me.  Now we all dream of going back to the west.


In loving memory of Aspen, 2002 – April 10, 2015

      • Hi Judi. I’m so honored that you bought my novel. It’s meant to be a fun read, magical and suspenseful I hope.
        Here at the blog you’ll find interviews with some of the characters and other things I’ve done about the fictional town of Atonement. None of which should be spoilers.
        Thank you so very much. Huge hugs.


    • Welcome Judi! I’m delighted you enjoyed your visit. I certainly enjoyed your blog. I’m not much of a cook any more, but I admire you chef/bloggers.
      I especially enjoy when cooks visit. You’ll see at the top of the page, buttons for homepages for some of the serials I did. Two of them are culinary mysteries. Thanks so much for taking time to comment. Sending hugs.

    • Oh no, Mary Cathleen. I’m so sorry about Chelsea. No wonder you were so worried about “Moon” maybe being outside.
      (Aspen happened in a very, very bad, tragic way. I blame myself as much as the greedy incompetent vet. I haven’t gotten over that loss yet, and maybe never will.)
      I’m delighted to welcome you to Teagan’s Books. Wishing us all joy in the year to come. Hugs.

  6. I like the way you write about food. It reminds me of that marvellous book ” Like Water for Chocolate” I suppose Mexico is not that far from the South. I like the guest post you did about the peppers!


    • Welcome Lucie! Thanks so much. I’m pleased that you liked the Pepper Story. Well, New Mexico is on the southern most tier of states. However, the culture and climate are very different from what’s known as the “deep south” — what people typically mean with the term “southern.” It’s also many hundreds of miles away in distance. Wishing you a wonder-filled week. Huge hugs!


  7. Teagan, first off, I’m totally taken with your name–so beautiful. And I’m taken with the title “Atonement, Tennessee.” You see 32 years ago I left my birthplace, Nashville, TN, and headed to the Pacific NW. I miss some things in TN, but love it here in Portland.

    Lastly, thanks for stopping by my blog and reading my review of Conflicted Hearts. I appreciate readers, and I hope you’ll return.


    • Welcome Sherrey — and thank you so much! I lived in Nashville for quite a few years. Tennessee is a beautiful state, rich in history. However, throughout my adult life I felt a longing to go westward. I got as far as New Mexico, and I was like a John Denver song — coming home to a place I’d never been before. I would love to be in Portland or anywhere west coast or southwest. So I definitely understand what you’re saying. I enjoyed your lovely blog, and I’m delighted that you repaid the visit. Hope to see you often. Hugs!

  9. So sorry for your loss of a dear companion. There are no words, just a deep sense of loss that needs no explanation. Take care and please accept this hug for your pain and loss and a prayer for peace of mind.


  10. I’m so sorry about Aspen, Teagan. How well do I know that loss. Take time, my friend. Give Crystal plenty of hugs and attention. I’m thinking of you both.


    • Thank you Deb. We’re both very sad. Yes… i know you understand all too well. Crystal i doing better than i feared, but with her Inflammatory Bowel Disease… Now the slightest change is upsetting to her. Especially in the mornings, when we have such a routine and it is different simply because her “big brother” isn’t there… Hugs.


      • It’ll take a while for Crystal — and of course, you — to adjust, but time is the great healer. For us, Millie was in such bad shape at the end, her passing was really a blessing. I don’t how it was for Aspen, but sometimes there is a peace that prevails at the end. Our deepest sympathies — keeping you both in our thoughts today.
