Author has written 18 stories for Dragon Age, and A song of Ice and Fire.

I live somewhere in the UK but mostly in my head. I'm female, in my 40s and have a secret life as both a nerd and a gamer. You really don't want to know about the day job...

As a rank beginner, I am grateful for any reviews/comments people may like to make and I always try to answer them.

Currently reading: George R R Martin's "A Clash of Kings", 2nd book in his "A Song of Ice and Fire", series. Highly recommended, this is not dark fantasy, it's pitch black... I love how he is mostly realistic or rather hyper-real and then introduces some magic, really sinister, magic.

Currently watching in film: Christopher Nolan's "Inception" a work of genius...

Currently watching on TV: HBO's "Game of Thrones" a TV masterpiece perfectly cast.

Currently watching on Blue Ray: Breaking Bad season 2, go Bryan Cranston, go...

PS: On The Silver Knight, I do intend to finish this when I get a spare moment.

Hiraeth
Hiraeth, pronounced [hɨraɪ θ], is a Welsh word that literally translates into English as 'longing', though in Welsh the concept of yearning for a place removed in space or time is far more powerful and evocative than in English. It has been denfined as homesickness tinged with grief or sadness over the lost or departed.

Fen'Harel and the Tree
A re-telling of the fable told by Felassan in Patrick Weeke's Masked Empire. "One day Andruil grew tired of hunting mortal men and beasts. She began stalking he Forgotten Ones, wicked things that thrive in the abyss. Yet even a god should not linger there, and each time she entered the Void, Andruil suffered longer and longer periods of periods of madness after returning."
