New story: A Conversation in Silence

My fantasy story ‘A Conversation in Silence’ is now up at Fictional Pairings. You can read it for free and listen to the accompanying music.

It’s a quirky fairytale that puts a twist on the genre by focusing on a young female who suffers from anxiety and communication issues. She also has a pet dragonling!

Istred’s father held a ball in his castle every fortnight, attempting to find a suitor that would capture her heart; to no avail. Istred found it difficult to speak with those she met – she didn’t know what to say, or when to say it. She also found it difficult to look them in the eye – it felt strange, and made focusing on their words tougher.
