A Found Family Mother

I’m close to wrapping up the first draft of Stealing Light and remain astonished at how the story has morphed time and time again. The core plot, the one I intended to write from the beginning, remains, but the emphasis on a forming found family, wasn’t intended.

The novel was born a year ago while developing the idea of a school for the gifted in Pannulus. After some initial world building, I launched into the story told from the POV of the principal adult, Tharlise. It started great, but then became too restrictive. I set that version aside and launched into the story again from Vistanna’s POV. It made for a better opening, and I was happy with it—until I wasn’t.

About Ontyre Passages

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
