How to engage with your teenage son? Hmm .. some parents pick up a ball and head for the great outdoors, some pack up a tent and leave the electronics at home, and just occasionally they will sit down and have a chat that ends in a published story. (We do like to play together too, especially at Medieval Fairs and Comic Cons just in case you were wondering.)
I'm really proud that Bailey and I have so much in common that we can collaborate on such a level.
This short story is one in a series of Hunters of Reloria prequels which delve into the history of our diverse group of Hunters (elves, dwaves, halflings etc).
Writing with a 13-year-old brings a different perspective to the characterisation of our young halflings. Fandri is 14 and his girlfriend, Emina is 15, so BB really helps me to nut out how they are thinking and feeling.
In Fandri's Eventful First Kiss, we see Fandri when he was just a young halfling, always getting into trouble. Beautiful farmer's daughter, Emina is out of his league and definitely a forbidden desire. Her father will brook no connection between them.
So what's going to happen when the two young love-birds get caught kissing in the barn? You'll just have to read it find out.
