This wasn’t my first completed work, but it was my first published. I had the idea of writing The Ruined Road years before I attempted it. I’ve never been much of a fan of reading short stories, so doing this was never uppermost in my mind. However, once I started it, I absolutely loved writing it. The inspiration for writing The Ruined Road is what the connecting factor is, and this is not something I share publicly. So far no one has guessed correctly what unites the 10 stories, though I have started telling people if they ask me directly.
I tacked Dryad onto the end of The Ruined Road simply because I loved it as a story. Dryad came to me in a mad, vivid dream during covid lockdown.
