My latest fantasy story, The Healer's Secret, is live on StoriesSpace. It is set in a new fantasy world (i.e. is not in the same "universe" as Night of the Wind and The Goddess Dances) and is about a woman's past and parentage coming back to haunt her years after she thought she had put them behind her. There's some sorcery, some violence, some horror, and a sort of hero's journey (that last wasn't conscious, just came to me now that it is in there).

Comments welcome in the story or in this thread.

I am working on a sequel/follow-up that picks up shortly after this story ends.

There is also an alternate ending version of this one that I have decided to hang on to, though I am not sure why. Maybe I'll do a "director's cut" someday.

Bump

I just realized that this story was awarded an RR. Apparently we don't get notified of these things at present. So I just thought I would give it a celebratory bump for those who may not have partaken yet.
