Music and video spots are my biggest inspirations and sometimes the idea produced by one nags at me until I write it. This was the case after seeing Gibonni’s video Hey Crow.
The imagery of this video is just amazing and the idea those images produced didn’t want to leave me alone no matter what. The ideas that can’t wait for their turn usually end as short stories with possibility to be one day expanded into a novel. So that what happened with the idea inspired by Hey Crow, it became a short, 8,000 words long. fairytale-like fantasy titled: The Whisperers.

Tyne and Kara could use their magic to help the people unite and fight against the injustice, but in the past uprisings in which they were involved always brought violence. Kara wants to try a different approach.
