The Making Of Destiny
How I weave my mantra––my brand––into my fiction novels and short stories and plant seeds of hope to inspire my readers.
If you know anything about me and the road less traveled I chose to take, you won’t be surprised at the title or content of my first fiction publication––a short story collection inspired be dreams, what-ifs, and the promise of destiny. Appropriately entitled, DESTINY, these stories capture the essence of my genres and writing style, ethereal, supernatural, romantic, heartwarming, filled with suspense and sprinkled with a touch of magic.
Designed to give readers a taste of my writing and leave them wanting more…I created five shorts, set in a world where dreams can shift to reality, love can reach through time and good can conquer evil. Inspiration abounds and my mantra is validated. I created this trailer to whet your appetite. I hope it works to peak your interest.
The official story blurb reveals the mystery, but few know the underlying inspiration. If you’d like to know more of what inspires my work, check out my Medium articles, like Seven Secrets To Direct Your Destiny.

The psycology behind the miraculous magic wand you have in your own hands…
My Destiny Series presents five novelettes, each with its own twist that will––wait, why don’t I show you my readers description.
“From USA Today Bestselling Author, Casi McLean––five award-winning novelettes with supernatural twists grab you on page one and hold you spellbound long after you read “The End.” At first these stories reel you into what appears to be a formula romance. Then they turn the genre on its head, throwing a perfectly aimed, delightful curveball at the surprising and satisfying endings. The writer doesn’t rush any part of these stories, letting the reader see, hear, and feel the magical eeriness of one fateful night.”
Allow me to introduce you to my heroines.
Book one, DESTINY, begins your journey. Self-reliant Reagan Nichols is no stranger to challenges, but ever since twilight fell over Spirit Lake and a murky mist oozed inland, everything felt surreal. When she finds a little girl wandering through the eerie fog, Reagan vows to save the child’s father from the bowels of a ghostly vessel adrift on the lake. Will the three survive a confrontation with pure evil in order to meet their Destiny?
Savanna Bradford’s impulsive reaction to her boyfriend Ryan’s proposal spirals her into a rendezvous with fate in book two, The Gift, where a mystical gift that could alter her future. Will the timeless struggle between dreams and passion bait her into repeating history, or will a simple gift from her bizarre encounter steer Savannah toward her true destiny before it’s too late?
Book three, After Midnight, introduces a different gift. Sabrina Wentworth’s bewildering gift swept her into the sensuous arms of a dream lover. Every night — after midnight — she slips into an illusory world drenched in passion. But the sands of time run out tonight. Can Brie find the key to her fantasy world before the reality of her ex boyfriend’s deadly plot plays through, or will she be destined to death after midnight?
I book four, Convergent, you’ll meet prominent heart surgeon, Sierra Norton, who performs minor miracles on a daily basis, but never in her wildest dreams did she imagine she would live one. When lightning strikes her flight the aircraft plunges, swirls through turbulence, and catapults Sierra into a treacherous past — the attack on Pearl Harbor. In a whirlwind blur, Sierra’s courage, skill, and passion challenges her sanity. Can the convergence of three strong women reset history to fulfill her destiny?
Book five, The Pegasus Chronicle, might be my favorite. When New York Time’s best selling author, Katlyn Harris, discovers a timeworn painting in the attic of the isolated home she mysteriously inherits, she feels a surge of déjà vu that spins her into a mysterious fantasy. Can dreams pierce the realm of reality or is Katlyn’s mystic connection to the antique painting the fulfillment of a promise torn from the pages of history?
Don’t take my word for it, read the reviews for the individual stories or the DESTINY SERIES. Here is a sample of what you find.

★★★★★ “This author is an auto-buy for me. Each of her novels including this one is a perfect mix of angst, suspense, humor, and steaminess.”
★★★★★”If you like richly drawn characters, time travel, and spirits galore you will love this boxset. I will definitely read this author again.”
