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.

You know how it is: you start a new job with all this breathless excitement and anxiety-ridden exuberance and you think it’s going to change your life.
Well, it did change my life: I was certain when the Grand Master of the Lodge informed me that I would be the Illuminati’s newest recruit that I would be able to learn all I needed to know about the Gregorian Calendar. But that myriad geocentric dating system was too baffling for me to come to terms with and the black cabal was less than impressed that I kept confusing Ra with Aunbis. This all added up to me getting the boot in 2009, and since then I’ve felt a little empty.
