Essays and Remembrances
This is a hub page for essays I've written over the years related to my writing. Some are about beginnings and how my writing for t'DoL got started. (t'DoL = the Defender of Life.) Others are about influences on me and my writing, or how my writing has impacted me, or what I might now choose to do differently. Those at the bottom are full of book spoilers and restricted in access.

If you're struggling with insomnia or just plain curious, dive in!
