    My mind has always preferred to be elsewhere than the here and now and as a child it was the past, or fiction set in worlds that have never existed, that set me alight and dragged me into libraries and bookshops. Even as a kid I liked creating alternative worlds. My story Terre Nouvelle is set in a world I created in my teenage bedroom to find escape from the grimness of adolescent reality. But creating stories is not the same as generating places in which they might happen, and the creative energy they're drawn from come from deep within. It's from my gayness that I draw it, and so my characters generally live in that alternative place as well as in alternative worlds.

Through all this human conflict young Sergius von Tarlenheim seeks to make a career at the Ruritanian court, where he finds unexpected friends and mysterious enemies.
