World Building

 

I’m in the very (very!) early stages of world building at the moment, so decisions are flying like confetti and what I think is a confirmed and locked-in decision today may end up changing by the time I’ve finished building the plot for the first book.

But for right now, I’m pretty sure the first book in this new urban fantasy series will be set in Toledo, Spain.  For some very good reasons, including one that has fascinated me for years:  In the medieval period, Toledo openly welcomed Jew, Muslims and Christians.  Everyone lived in peace behind the ancient walls.

Stunning, for that era.

Toledo’s heritage will serve my story well.
