The Tales

  • Hester and the Kookaburra King
    When a plague befalls Guineawick, Hester must set off from home on an adventure to find the cure.
  • Aman*
    A short adventure of the Guardmouse Aman, set during the events of “Hester and the Kookaburra King”.

*: Short story

The Plan

The series is my attempt at children’s literature for adults; adding emotional depth to the typically child-friendly setting of animal fantasy. The current plan is to write three main novels, alternating with three short stories that further expand the Guineawick Tales universe. The first tale, the short story Pawsgaard, is meant as an introduction to the world and is available online at Smashwords and other fine ebook retailers.

I have two tales currently in progress:

  1. Hester and the Kookaburra King, the first full-length novel set in the Guineawick Tales universe. The first draft was written during NaNoWriMo 2010 and I’m currently on draft three, hoping for a late 2012 release.
  2. The short story Aman, the first draft of which was written during NaNoWriMo 2011.
