This science fiction series was created long ago. It was born in 1979 and grew up in 1984, the 1990s, the 2000s, and then in the 2010s when all the words had been collected into one place. Back in 1979, I didn't know anything about writing. Over the years, I learned by reading and writing.
When I first created the world of Thol, the characters were in their 20-30s. A book editor I met at a writers conference suggested I take the characters ages down to teenage so I could capture two audiences: Young Adult and Adult.
Wow! What an idea. Little did I realize that everything had to be changed. Teens don't have the same thoughts and responses adults do, so as a result, everything had to be wiped. As it turned out, this version is so much better than what I originally started with so long ago.
