Lutesong Short Stories:

Key Change

A month after Emry saves the day at Dawnstone, he finds himself recovering at home, surrounded by family and friends he hasn’t seen in three years. The town is eager for him to resume his old post on the local stage—but after his past failures, can he bring himself to pick up a lute again?


Fifty years before the events of The Stray Spirit, Aspen is a forest spirit like any other—silent, nameless, and happily asleep in their grove.

But when a little girl named Addie sits under their tree to read a book, Aspen discovers that waking up is a double-edged sword.

Aspen is a light short story all about our favorite forest spirit’s origins.
