From the Author
Living in Scotland is awesome. Soaring mountains, inky lochs, thousand-acre skies - just looking at our scenery is an inspiration in itself. And folk tales abound - perhaps a relic of a time when the only thing to do in the long dark winter nights was to sit around the fire and spin a yarn.
It was around this time that I was reading Anthea Sharp's Feyland, and thinking about a contribution for Samuel Peralta's Chronicle Worlds anthology. Nearly everything I write is set in Scotland, so it seemed natural to combine the two, and to use some of our stories about the 'fairy folk' to inspire my Feyland piece.
But as I wrote about Corinne and Elphin, I realised that their full story couldn't be told in five thousand words. They had a bigger tale to tell - a tale that will awaken ambitions, enmity and sleeping kings.
In the end, I drafted outlines for a four-part series, The Celtic Fey. This book, 'Kelpie Curse', is part two, and parts three and four will be published soon after. You can check these out on Amazon or on my website: rozmarshall.co.uk/books/.
