T'Ash from HeartMate
T'Ash interview about his tattoo
Ive had a very poor/amateurish map of the two continents of
Celta presently known since before I was published. Finally I found
software that has helped me make it acceptable for general use. The cities
of Druida and Gael City are only dots, but other landscape items can be seen
including the dreaded Great Washington Boghole. The map will be updated as
I become more famililar with the program.
Since the HeartBond is
so deep, when one HeartMate dies, the other follows within the year.
The HeartMate must accept
a HeartGift willingly and without knowing it was a HeartGift before the other
can claim them as a HeartMate and HeartBond with them.
The punishment for telling
a person they are your HeartMate is that the offending party must always be chaperoned
while in the presence of the HeartMate. If no chaperone is available, the guilty
party must remain at least three meters away from the HeartMate. The restrictions
are for five years or until the wronged one states in front of three heads of
FirstFamilies that s/he accepts the HeartMate status and repeats it five
The punishment for HeartBonding
with a HeartMate without telling them is exile of the offending party from within
eighty kilometers of the victim for a period of five years.

For Celta, the day of Thanksgiving is Discovery Day, when the colonists of the
three ships found a new home world. This takes place in the summer and is talked
about in HeartMate.
More Information on
Yes, women DO experience
the reaching out for a HeartMate during their Passages and DO recognize their
HeartMate. So far I've gone with men finding their HeartMates first because that's
the way the stories came to me. Other stories will have the women more knowledgeable
about their HeartMates, and one (Heart Quest) will have Trif Clover literally
searching for hers. I believe that this has not happened before because I needed
to learn more about Celta and also develop as a writer.
Tinne Holly: I've had many
questions about whether Tinne Holly will have his own story. Hopefully, yes. I'm
not quite ready to write about him yet, I think he needs to season, as do his
circumstances and his lady's, as well as the parental Hollys. Tinne's story is
still very amorphous in my mind. If readers care to send ideas, I'm open to them.
Without spoiling anything, I will say that Holm and Lark will play a large part
in that story and it will take place in Druida..
