An excerpt from StoryEarth Chronicles:
The Sting Baby
The link below will take you to an excerpt from Chapter Two. The book is set in StoryEarth, where stories are held sacred, and all nutrition comes from language.
MamaLinn and MamaBette are Millie's mothers. They live in the area called Ddrym, which encircles the Preservation Precinct where stories are kept whole and alive. And while both regions hold stories sacred, they hold very poor opinions of one another. The Precinct looks down on Ddrymmians for being superstitious and backward. And Ddrymmians chafe at the Precinct's harsh ideologies and rigid attachments.
