An Irish Fairy Tale

                              on, Kindle & iBook 

"To find her mother, Iona must embrace a world of magic."

"As a member of her writing group, I've had the pleasure of reading parts of her novel,

and I'm excited for the rest."

- Tania del Rio, writer and artist of Archie Comics' Sabring the Teenage Witch

Iona Fay, a realistic 14-year-old from the United States, searches for her missing mother in Ireland, only to discover that she's lost to the Fairy World. To find her mother, she must forget everything she knows about reality and embrace a world of magic. For Iona, real magic begins with believing in herself.

Welcome to the website of Gayvin Powers, author and screenwriter, where writers come and find their bliss. You're invited to look around, see the latest on Gayvin's Iona Fay Series, coaching and advice on writing or attend a writer's workshop to help you unleash your artistic potential. Live Your Dreams!

A believer that "Everyone Has a Story," Gayvin has written over 50 articles, several to award-winning PineStraw magazine in Southern Pines, North Carolina. Her feature articles tend to focus on compelling local stories and individuals as well as her memories of growing up in an idyllic town on the west coast — similar to the Norman Rockwell town of Southern Pines without the sweet tea and sweltering summers.

After the passing of her mother, she began writing with a greater sense of purpose. Iona Fay is a reflection of the loving relationship she shared with her mother and is meant to inspire young readers, ages 8 - 14, to believe in themselves.
