Story Notes:

This one's a bit different from my usual work (see blurb below). Very old school, intended as a 'true love', wish-fulfillment-kind of story for fans starved of romance and Caryl time. Nonetheless, it feels as inspired as each piece I write, and hopefully gives readers a positive impression of my personal style.

Note from the author

I write mainly speculative fiction. Dystopian, AU, Fairy tales, Paranormal, Sci-Fi, and the like. Always though, fundamentally, it’s about fantasy, and even magic, somehow grounded in realism—along the lines of Ray Bradbury, my favourite author. An essence of romance tinges many of these stories, however, it is not always the primary drive.
