Author, Tarot Reader

Marieke Lexmond reads tarot cards, loves food, photography, and travel. She has three sassy little dogs that she likes to take everywhere and even have their own Instagram account @urbandogsquad. Her background in filmmaking enabled her to travel and live around the globe. Storytelling is in her blood, from saving her allowance from a very young age to buy books to her master’s degree from the Dutch Film Academy. Fantasy and science fiction are her favorite genres. She prefers to write fun and mystical stories. Her attraction to nature and places with a magical history brought her to New Orleans and the West Coast of Ireland. As a pagan, she felt an instant connection to the land; it feeds her imagination and has become the inspiration for the Madigan Chronicles.  The Cup (Madigan Chronicles #4) will be released the fall of 2022.

Marieke will present Weaving Tarot into a Story: A Creative Conversation at StaarCon 2022.

How Daily Cards Drive the Story

The cards of the Minor Arcana, as a card of the day, set the theme and inspire the chapters of my fantasy book series “The Madigan Chronicles”

In this presentation I will share how tarot cards can be an inspiration for a story. I will explain how I use a daily card in my work, and the process of designing tarot cards with an artist.

Together, we will have fun and be creative making our own stories with the cards we draw.
