In redesigning my site, I remembered that I have several short stories that aren't quite suitable for the Free Reads page. So, I've decided to put them up on Wattpad for people to enjoy. I posted the first chapter of Forbidden today and will upload subsequent chapters weekly until it's complete.
These first few stories I have to share are older ones, so if they sound familiar to you, then you may have read them before. I am, however, editing each of them as they're posted, for clarity, voice, and simply because my style has evolved over the years I've been publishing and I'd like to give these a proper dust-off. They're all getting new artwork, though, so check that out at least.
Forbidden is a story from the world of Syndraya and my Legend of the Grimoire series. It's the bittersweet tale of a teenage William Hannigan's first love and his struggle to find his true self in a country where same-gender partnerships are illegal. It's quite literally a story of forbidden love, full of the emotion and drama that Mr. Hannigan embodies so well. William is one of my oldest characters (very literally), so it was interesting to explore the past of one of the voices who's been with me from the beginning. I hope everyone enjoys it.
Thanks, as always, for reading.
