Until you showed your face …

9 October, 2018

Feeling nervous, Otta followed Erl and Derri through the gate and entered the guardhouse. The heat struck Otta like a physical blow and for a moment she found it hard to breathe. Then she became aware of how her fingers and toes hurt.

“Come to the fire, travellers.” One of the guards spoke. “You must be nearly perished with cold.”

“It has been rather chilly.” Erl remarked, setting Derri down before the fire.

The guards laughed at Erl’s comment and the child cringed, staring around. Otta hurried over to him, reassuring him with quiet words. She pulled off his wraps and gloves and made him stretch out his hands to the fire. Derri did as he was told and stared into the dancing flames, entranced. Otta started removing her own woollen gloves and fur muffler as Erl continued to joke with the guards. A sudden halt in conversation indicated that something was wrong. She glanced up as she removed her hood, enjoying the heat on her face. Without exception every guard was staring at her. Outside the traders’ wagons lumbered past.

What’s wrong? she asked Erl silently.

No idea, he replied. They were fine until you showed your face …

20 November, 2017

The power struggle that began in Vintrig’s Kingdom continues in the sequel …
Darkness, romance and intrigue! Blood, death and sacrifice! You’ll find all these and more in Vintrig’s Throne.
If you were left wondering what happened to Isu Magan and Sama Conn, you can now find out!
Isu Magan, heir to Vintrig’s Throne, has fallen in love with Sama Conn, a travelling musician. Fearing to lose her promised inheritance, Isu is unwilling to show her true feelings for the man she loves. Terrified of her Counsellor Jya, Isu is forced to meet with Sama in secret. When Isu takes the crown that is hers by right, it seems that everything will change for the better. But Jya, always working in the shadows, has many plans and as the net draws around Isu and Sama, a violent blizzard once again holds Vintrig’s Kingdom its cruel grip. Isu finds herself on trial for her life and only one thing can rescue her; the Law of Substitution. Will true love triumph over hatred and fear? Will the reign of winter end? Or will darkness spread its victorious wings over Vintrig’s Castle?
This is an unusual fantasy novel. The plot does not revolve around a physical quest to gain or lose an object of power. Instead, this story is about the journey of a soul to distinguish truth from lie and to discover who she really is …

Check out my short teaser film about it at YouTube
