Something different

Some people have been asking, “Why is Half Spent Was the Night so short?

The simple answer is: “Because it was never meant to be long.”

What I’d set out to do, from the very start, was write a short Yuletide tale—in the tradition of a Dickensian Christmas story, but with witches instead of ghosts.

I’d wanted to create something different:

—a small little book that could be tucked away in a pocket,

—a tale that could be read in one sitting, either alone or aloud with friends by a crackling fire or dancing candlelight,

—a story filled with ancient folklore and traditions,

—a magical glimpse into the lives of characters I’d grown to love, set during a brief, specific time of year.

If you’d like to learn more about the short fiction and novellas that inspired my latest work, here’s a behind-the-scenes video.

A million thanks for your interest in my work!
