Innocence Waning was conceived as a one chapter short story that I wrote at the beginning of the year 2015. That chapter has since been fundamentally changed one hundred times and if doesn’t suck the reader into the story, I have failed as an author. Subsequently, I composed the subsequent five chapters simply to entertain myself around Easter in 2015. I was bored at the time and I was in desperate need of a positive outlet. Good feedback flowed in from unexpected sources and I was encouraged to keep writing. The aforementioned short story morphed into a piece of literary fiction that spans 217,000 words. The full work comprises of two books which took three years of my life to produce.
