Before I started writing The Pagan Family I was working on a fantasy novel. I put it to one side when I realized, first, that I was a lot better at writing non-fiction than fiction, and, second, that I was more interested in creating the culture in which the story took place than in writing the story itself.

Inventing a culture, especially a language, is a truly geeky thing to do. Iím not alone in this sort of thing, of course, but then there are a lot of geeks.

Since two of my main interests in life are religion and language, those two areas of my fantasy land, Tuadem, are particularly well-developed. This will be obvious from these excerpts from my writings on Tuadem.
