I have been a storyteller for a very long time. It started, I think as all writing should start, with reading. Home schooled for the early years of my life, my parents made sure my literacy was top-notch. It was only really ever a matter of time before I started creating my own tales.
Red Right Hand is the first iteration, the first part, of a sequence of books under the Slip/stream collective. Lev is, well, he’s basically just a guy in my own science fiction universe. Turns out that some people are looking for him. Serious people, doing serious looking.
On the face of it, his journey in the book is straightforward. Underneath though, it’s a story about identity – because fundamentally Lev does not know who he really was. And if we don’t know who we were, can we know who we truly are now?
Other characters move in and out of his sphere of influence. Knowing him changes them. He’s not just a character in his own right, but a catalyst for their stories. He’s not really the hero of the book: they are.
I’ve been lucky enough to write freelance for Camping With Style, which is an amazing blog.
