Founded in the early 1800s by the Dunwich family, the town of Aviario, Connecticut is nestled on the banks of the Housatonic River. You can't find it on any map, but in your imagination, it's wedged between the town lines of Derby and Ansonia. It's a somewhat typical small New England town, with a proud history and a very active community. But reality is just a little different here... the familiarity of modern life is threaded with the presence of magic. Real, true magic: an energy that is accessible by all faiths and cultures, by whatever means that will and imagination can conjure. This can lead to great opportunities for growth, or terrible incidents of ruin. In order to keep the balance between the two, a secret group called the Organization has existed since the dawn of recorded time, and its members are granted special abilities which allow them to meet the challenges they face in the call of duty.
Since not everyone is aware of the presence of magic, it does not factor in every tale of Aviario. The first novel, From the Desk of Buster Heywood, has only the barest references to magic: and then, only if you squint and look very hard.... whereas In The Cards serves as an introduction to how it works in our heroes' world. Theme and content vary from novel to novel, just as no real city has any one sort of article in the news from day to day.
Even though I've dubbed these The Novels of Aviario, your travels may take you elsewhere in the world, as well: it all depends on who you choose to get to know, and where their story takes you. Let me, as your Imaginative Journey Concierge, introduce you to friends you'll love getting to know, and a town that's worthy of being your fictional second home.
