About Me

Welcome to Life of Noveltea! I’m a musician, artist, and writer. This is my digital realm for musings on music, fiction, (life the universe and everything).

Listen to my music  if you enjoy fairy-tale folk music, ballads, and airs (I play dulcimer and sing).

Read my stories if you enjoy urban fantasy, obscure folklore, and unusual adventures.

Follow along on YouTube for more adventures.
