Staci Layne Wilson got her first set of tarot cards (the Aquarius Deck) when she was 10, and she discovered Led Zeppelin about a year later -- from there on in, there was no stopping the rock n roll fantasies! She is the author of two published works of fiction (Horrors of the Holy, and The Dance) and one nonfiction horse training book (The Horse's Choice). When she is not writing, Staci spends her time caring for her mini-zoo of four-legged critters and watching movies for fun (she's seen The Song Remains The Same over 200 times) and profit (she works as a film critic and entertainment reporter), and of course, listening to classic rock.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission.

IN THE BEGINNING
The book is what started it all.
It was the most incredible-looking book I had ever seen. Not that I was into books, mind you, but this one was most unusual. It must have been very old, indeed, as its gilt-edged pages were bound and tied by an ancient-looking leather cover and thong. It was untitled, but a quick glance through its musty pages revealed that it was a hand-written and illustrated guide to reading tarot cards.
At the time, I really didn’t know much about tarot cards. The very idea conjured up the (admittedly contrived) image of a raven-haired gypsy woman with great, round golden earrings and painted red lips moving her slender, ring-bedecked hands over a crystal ball while dry ice pumped out mysterious mist from underneath the small circular table where she sat. All that stuff, everything Zen, anything mystical, really didn’t do anything for me.
I tucked the book under my arm and descended the pull-down stairs from the attic. As I stood in the hallway, I looked at the first few pages for a publishing date. If it was old enough, I figured, maybe I could get some really good money for it. It certainly was useless to me, after all. Musty-dusties had never appealed; everything had to be absolutely brand new to suit me. All of my clothes were in the newest style, my taste in furnishings was ultra-modern, and, of course, my cars, since I got my first BMW at the age of sixteen, were never more than a year old.
