The Trillium Forest novel is now underway (title TBD!)
For years I've been dreaming about bringing the Trillium Forest and all the short stories I have written about its characters and creatures into a full fantasy adventure novel. That dream is currently being realized as I have officially begun writing! The process is very slow-going, with no hard deadline in sight. As I humbly take on this gigantic project in addition to the day to day work of creating my sculptures, I have much to learn about the process of storytelling and writing. I am bringing together my love and passions for nature, forest conservation, magical creatures, witchcraft, herbalism, foraging and more into a journey that feels closer to an autobiography than simply a tale of fiction.
Working Summary (under construction and subject to change!):
An anxious young woman inadvertently finds herself with a huge burden to navigate, helping an enchanted forest of creatures fight off “the woolies”- an invader that is consuming and killing the oldest and wisest Dryads. In order to help combat this hostile presence she takes up residence with the Forest's caretaker, a reclusive witch who lives in a cabin on its perimeter. Along the journey she learns that to help the faeries, she must also fight her own enemies within.
