Welcome to Under Earth, land of the Fae, and my summer project!
When I set out to compose Tales of the Drui, one decision was very clear to me: Whatever I wrote, it had to be based on an element of truth. I didn’t want to create a world independent from our own. I wanted a kind of alternate history, one that braided magical realism into history and fantasy.
Kallan’s world returns readers to the nine realms of the Viking Age. I stayed as true to the myths as I could (based on the studies and resources provided by Jacob Grimm and John Lindow). Where the myths were concerned, I stayed as true to the prose as I could. May you indulge in their stories as much as I.
