The Medic and the Toymaker Short (1/1)

A short (5,000 words, to me that’s a short) that takes place during the first third of The Healers’ Road. Keifon, the medic, and Baran, the toymaker, seem to be friends, but it’s never really explored in the story. I thought I’d figure out how they got to be that way.

Agna at the Academy Short: 1/6

#tbt …way back!

Earlier this year I spent some time working on Agna’s backstory, when she was a student at the Academy. As it turns out, this is not going to become a book, because having a young character automatically makes it a children’s book (something I didn’t realize… ha). This is just a backstory/flashback for a character in a more-or-less-grownup book.

So as a web extra, here’s a bit of Agna’s backstory.

Part 1 * Part 2 * Part 3 * Part 4 * Part 5 * Part 6
