When I first had the idea for Tanna Tully, the Firefly Witch, it was a totally different time. I wrote a novel manuscript* in the late 80s/early 90s that established the character and her world, and that conception remained essentially unchanged going forward. When I started writing short stories about her in the mid-90s and continuing through today, I saw it as a continuity with those original ideas.
