Backstory

 

I found the journey of writing the first Figmentasia Novel has been a huge undertaking for a first-time author.  The original idea came from a dream about a little boy who when he got angry or upset, would turn into a girl fairy. Teban-Thelba had been born.   In early drafts Teban-Thelba was a seven-year-old child but as plot developments evolved it quickly became apparent a seven-year-old child would not be able to undertake some of the quests or deal with the foul lecherous Lyson.  Over the course of writing, Teban-Thelba changed from seven to eleven, before I finally settled on a fifteen-year-old trans teenager.

 

 

The plot of book-one deals with social issues of the current age as subtext against a backdrop of a classic heroes quest journey.  From its inception, it was designed to promote discussion between a child and their parents or teachers.  The use of traditional gods and fictional ones have been purposefully used to help promote a child’s interest in mythology and other world cultures.  It is hoped this will inspire them to be more creative with their creative writing in English class.

 

 

The book’s plot was developed around Teban-Thelba’s identity, discovery and final choice.  As such all the ancient gods and mythological creatures (and in the case of Akila, made up gods) were used to support the plot and chosen for their attributes for what Teban-Thelba was facing emotionally at any given moment.
