Pleased to meet you as well 🙂 and thank you! If you are curious, my prologue/creation story is in the Fantasy section of the forums (it might be burred at this point though, lol)
So Marissa Meyer and Francine Rivers are among my favourite authors.
I haven’t heard of them, what kind of books do they write?
Irish and Celtic mythos are fun to draw from, and contrasting that with what sounds like a very ‘hard’ magic is pretty interesting. And we can always use more stories of grace and redemption 🙂
