Dread & the Broken Witch is my new novella, which will be published by Luna Press next year.
In the fabulous heart of the ancient, altered continent of Zabardu, a nameless Dread falls across the Village and traps Precious Child. The terrified villagers turn to their healer, a brilliant but outrageous transgender woman called Bambomiyi, who lives in a mysterious wreck in the desert.
But the raucous Bambomiyi is also the Broken Witch, for she lost her amazing powers in a war in the far north, and a cataclysm she no longer remembers.
Precious Child and the Broken Witch have a unique and powerful connection, so despite the lethal predations of the Dread and a past that threatens to overwhelm her, the Broken Witch sets out on an epic, impossible quest – from one side of the Village to the other.
