“Toff had taken many things in his life. He’d stolen a tiara off a princess at a masquerade, he’d picked the pocket of a councilman in his office, he’d even weaselled a map out of the bare hands of a pirate. That was his job. He was a thief. But, he’d never once taken a life—not until two nights past.”
I’ve been holding this story quite close and not talking in posts much. For some reason, it felt too precious. That is until I did this portrait. Along with writing the sleeping beauty retelling with Bryn Shutt, I have also been writing a spin-off tale inspired by my Maiden Ship series. This book is the story of Toff’s youth. If you’ve read The Maiden Ship series, you’ll know my beloved Toff very well.
Much like parents, authors probably shouldn’t pick favourites, but Toff is definitely my favourite original character, (well, that might not be entirely true, QB is a close second), but Toff holds first place. He’s morally grey with a heart of gold, far too fond of practical jokes, and he’s completely unpredictable, an emotional enigma in fact. I literally never know what he’s going to do on the page, so this makes writing him an adventure, and I LOVE adventure!
My hope is that this new YA adventure feels like a mix of Assassins Creed meets The Mummy with a dash of Phantom of the Opera. It’s a tall order, I know, but I am having the time of my life writing it because these elements give me life.
Anywho, I hope that some of my Maiden Ship fans out there will be excited to hear this news, let me know in the comments if you are because it will spur me onward!
“The three of us huddle together, grasping this quiet moment as tight as we can. I’m not quite sure if we pause this long just to let Hazel’s magic crest, or if we’re stalling. With as many times as Death and her cold fingertips have crossed my mind, I’m sure Rush and Hazel have thought about her as well. There’s a possibility the three of us might not walk out of these woods together, and we all know it. So, we stare straight ahead and watch the low light of the evening sun sink between the trees.” ~ A Daughter of the Trolls
