Winter’s Holme


Broke off The Turning Stone – now at 13k words – to do a Winter themed story. This began with a visit to Farnworth Library three days back when we took Ted Hughes November as a starting point.

My creation became three linked stories set in a fantasy world where only the nomads of the Northland Steppes are fully free from the power of the all-conquering Kaiph. These take place in the Northland Steppes and consist of:

  • Winter’s Spite
  • Winter’s Gift
  • Winter’s Child

I’ll present my offering: Winter’s Gift, this coming Friday at Farnworth Library when Julie McKiernan hosts our second Winter Workshop. This will be 10am to noon..
