Researching characters seemed to be the most difficult task. How was I to come up with the main players of this epic? Matt and Toby were easy – they were the characters from my dream. I had to develop all the rest.
Sitting in front of my computer back in 2003, I stared at the screen with a blank express of bewilderment. Where to start? Green Isle floated above my head in a cartoonish box and I thought, ‘Hey it sounds Irish.” Off I went to the search engine and typed in Irish myths and legends. What I found so long ago has led me on a journey of not only discovery of the story line, but discovery of a desire to become a history professor.
Some interesting tidbits:
my elf name – Idril Seregon
Gwyllion – irish meaning ghosts, spirits, human or supernatural night wanderers.
When dragon’s blood touches the tongue you will be able to understand the speech of birds.
