My urban/historical fantasy series, Fey World starts with the story of Jude Pender and his friends as they slowly discover that there is an underlying reality to the mundane, a reality in which the supernatural exists.
In Fey Girl, Jude dreams of the Fae, an otherworldly dimension populated by Faeries. He is contacted by Aedh who views Jude as a warrior to be sent against those who would upset the order of things. This novel sets the stage for the events to follow in the Fey World series. The series core books are a tetrology that tell the tale of a mystical convergence in the modern world that plays out because of events that occurred in ancient times. The supporting books in the series (the Fey Tales collections) cover those events from ancient times up to the recent past. These tales give a legendary back-story to the series and allows the reader to become immersed in the secret history of the world. (more…)
This is an update on what I’m doing and where I’m at. I’ve been spending most of my free time writing a collection of short stories as a sort of sideshow to my Fey World series of novels. These short stories give a historical background for the events found in my first novel in that series, Fey Girl, and also the later sequels.
A great deal of my time has been spent in research for this collection. It’s called Fey Tales (which will be the first in several instalments) and it starts off in 1100 BC during the Trojan War. From there it moves from 1000 BC and the fall of the Tower of Babel, 600(ish) BC after the Battle of Thermopylae, 500(ish) BC in Athens during the time of Socrates and then it jumps forward into the Middle Ages with King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table in 600(ish) AD, The Knights Templar in 1100(ish) AD, Rasputin 1900(ish) AD, World War II and a tale from the 1980’s.
