Welcome to one of our online homes! We are Joanna and Ron and write together as The Lazuli Portals. We write novels, short stories, flash fiction, and poetry.

The core themes throughout our novels are: spiritual awakening, natural magic (energy healing), synchronicities, crystals, friendship, developing intuition, and the incredible power of universal energy.

Our blog follows our journey as we write and publish our novels and short stories, and learn about self-publishing, marketing (and ourselves) along the way. We also share books that we’ve enjoyed or which have inspired us. Our old blog remains on our main website.

We also take part in Friday Fictioneers as often as possible – usually fortnightly. All writers (published and unpublished) are welcome to take part; and everyone is welcome to read both our stories and those posted by other Fictioneers. Our old flash fiction blog remains on our main website.

We’ve called our newsletter Creations. Each issue includes short prose and/or poetry written just for our subscribers. We also include our latest news, and links to our recent blog and flash fiction posts. You can subscribe to them for free! There’s a handy ‘Subscribe’ link at the top of this page.

To find out more about our writing, and to explore The Lazuli Portals series of inspirational fantasy novels, please wander through the various pages here, and/or visit our main website.
