Author’s note

A few years back, I was watching a terrible teen movie about a bunch of dudes with magic. It’s only redeeming features where the eye-candy and a rather chauvinist plot device that meant only men could wield magic.

Now, that last part isn’t normally a good thing, but in this respect, it ticked me off so much that I came up with the idea for Tales of the Light.

I won’t tell you any more about it, except that Elouise is the prologue of a longer story.

Although it’s not my on writing calendar just yet, Tales of the Light is definitely a project I’m keen to get back to.
