The world in which the stories of my novels take place, slowly being pieced together as I continue to write and flesh out the various peoples and places.  Sometimes the lore gets developed as I’m writing and suddenly realise I haven’t a clue what’s going on in the setting.

Most of the time I’m seized by inspiration at 2am and ah yes I shall spend three hours researching the evolutionary history of ruminants because why not.

If you’re at all interested in learning more about the world behind the stories, I’m using World Anvil to keep all the articles together, which you can find here.  I’ll post excerpts and links to the articles here, as well as the occasional note on some of the research that inspires the lore of Mederra.

Stay tuned!
