About Hidden Meridians
Mythology has long fascinated me.
How have people come up with such diverse and beautiful stories, from all different parts of the world throughout history?
What happens to myths as society modernizes? Do they run away, hide away, die away?
Around Curiosity's Edge is an exploration. It is a dive into world myth, but also the delicate psyche of a boy dealing with social anxiety. It is a reflection on loss, but also an observation of the wonders that occur through inclusion and diversity.
This is the first installment of a series that is still actively playing out and I can't wait to see where it goes.
I hope you enjoy reading Hidden Meridians as much as I enjoyed writing it.

"They loomed the way mountains loom; giant and quiet, running on a different kind of time, solid yet unbound on a granular level, as if they at any moment could dissolve into dust."
