Inspirations for Cross and Circle

Cover art for Cross and CircleCross and Circle grew out of a strange note I found about a circle and cross inscribed on the roof of a car. It rustled around in my ideas folder for quite a while until I made the connection between this symbol and pecked crosses. Once I dug further into pecked crosses and realized that symbol had been found across cultures and across geography, the first inklings of a plot started coming together.

Even with all of these connections, it still took me a while to get this novella pulled together. There were some false starts and rabbit holes, but eventually, I got the plot narrowed down to the story I wanted to tell, which is ultimately about why the “chosen one” isn’t always the right choice.

If this sounds like your jam, you can buy Cross and Circle in ebook or read it with a subscription on Channillo.
