Welcome to 2020, Everything is on Fire

As I sit here writing this, Australia is burning. Even though today is overcast, I'm looking out the window at a smoke-stained sky, and every sunset tints the world orange. The sheer size and destructive capabilities of this fire (fires) are beyond comprehension. The footage and imagery coming out of the worst affected areas is… Continue reading Welcome to 2020, Everything is on Fire

In Flight

Rain poured down, splattering so hard against the windshield it was almost impossible for the wipers to do their job. I squinted, ducking down slightly in a futile effort to better see where we were going. It was half past eight in the morning, but the clouds were so heavy it might as well have… Continue reading In Flight

Sorcery and Stardust, The Weaver’s War, writing

Rebirth

This scene is set about fifty-eight years before the events of Sorcery and Stardust.
