I was challenged to write a short story from the point of view (POV) of a non-human protagonist. Needle-Green was the result. A couple of humans make a very minor appearance in the story, but the POV character is a mystical version of a redwood sapling. I fell in love with Needle-Green. I hope you will too!
Needle-Green, a redwood dryad who has made the leap from growing sprout to intelligent being, embarks on a journey to find the perfect place to put down permanent roots. Preferably far from the reach of interfering humans. Does such a sheltered refuge exist? Needle-Green hopes to discover that it does before s/he becomes too tall to walk the earth in anonymity.
My alter-ego has a new story out! This one plays in Anthea Sharp’s Feyland universe. If you’re not familiar with Feyland, you really should check it out. I’m definitely a fan (which is why I wrote this story.) Find information here.
A short tale set in Anthea Sharp’s Feyland universe.
Wallace, a fierce Norwegian Forest cat, has guarded the boy since he was an infant. Despite advancing age, Wallace isn’t about to shirk his duty now that the boy is old enough to play a dangerous game. Wallace doesn’t understand his boy’s fascination with Feyland, but he knows a threat when he sees one.
Speaking of playing in other people’s universes … this is my first ever military science fiction space opera … and it’s written in Nick Webb’s Legacy Fleet universe. I had great fun putting this together 😀
