Do you have a sibling that seems to have lived a different childhood than you by the way they describe it? Unfortunately, this can happen and not moving on with life and forgiving can lead to a lot of damage and regret. I wrote this story to attempt to bring healing to those who may have experienced this. This story is riddled with elements from my own childhood experiences.
Our character, Ash, has to make a journey into forgiveness, as a man, that we all need to. But for Ash, he’s a bit too late. Hopefully, we won’t be.

If a story could blow up… this story is the one.
Originally, I had conceived the title Kingdoms which would feature four brothers who warred against each other. I knew there would be some kind of book hidden away in a cave, guarded by little lizard people, and I knew it was going to be epic. I take credit for those parts of the story, the rest… just blew up.
I began writing the first scene of Chaos in 2014, I think. I imagined it perfectly and described it as I imagined it. And then the character we learned about: lost. I figured the king wouldn’t like it so he killed him. Or did he? When Ful wakes up at the bottom of the throne room, we start to realize there are some uncharacteristically tender feelings to this king…
The kind of thought process is how Chaos was written. It literally unfolded itself. And then over the course of the next 6 years, the entire Saga showed itself to me one day at a time. New races, kingdoms, characters, books, short stories, enemies, and even classes of species arrived on the pages on my writing app. I was just privileged to learn about the world of Teros first!
I feel this story is necessary as it is a Fantasy story that doesn’t have witchcraft, course language, or sexual content. It’s clean! And that makes it rare. And needed.

This story has taken a lot of re-writing and plot-changing to get just write. It’s about time travel, alternate realities and butterfly effects. I’ve been working on the sequence of scenes for many years in order to get them just write.
This story was inspired by the concept that Tolkien sort of put forth. When the Age of Man began, perhaps they could develop out of a world with dragons and glowing-fireball-eyes and into paved roads, airplanes, and Snapchat. Perhaps… but the only way to find out is to travel back in time and with the help of… nope. I can’t tell you what the stone really is just yet. But Flygue Sootna knows.
