Here There Be Monsters

#flashfiction #freefiction “The sun came up over the mountain like it always did. Rays of pale light stretched lazy fingers over the mountains and into the haze. The beams brought a blush to the clouds hovering above. This tremulous moment of balance between light and day lasted but a moment until the sun, eager to […]

Background story for my Outsiders novel

This is a story set in the past of the fictional world of my novel The Light Within. It describes the moment the Irin came to be. The Story of Armoni – the first Irin Armoni son of Giled was tired. The visit by the Atlantean trade delegation was more tiring than he expected. All day […]
