This idea for the Adventurers blog series emerged during late 2017 when I was working out how to guest post for the Story Reading Ape in 2018.  I’d already had a yearning to write stories for some of my illustrator Dani English’s wonderful character sketches.  With Dani’s permission, and the Ape’s approval, that’s what happened.

As I said in the introduction to the second episode, regular readers of my blog may start to see some connections with the world of my colour blind ranger and indebted bard, who featured in my flash fiction from 2016 onwards.

The episodes are linked to the original posts on The Story Reading Ape.  If you don’t follow him already, I recommend you do.  Apart from guest posts he also reblogs cartoons, writing and blogging news and advice, and other posts of interest to readers, writers and bloggers.
