Des never wanted to go to Neverland, but he’d do anything for Tinsley and she’s set on beating the MMORPG whatever the cost.

1LLUM1N8 is a mini prequel to the anticipated book SHADOW TO DUST, a Tinker Bell retelling. This story is a glimpse at Des’ character and relationship to Tinsley, his dearest and oldest friend. Tinsley uses Neverland as a means of escape in SHADOW TO DUST, but Des’ anxiety and disconnect with the world around him isn’t something he can easily escape from, not even in Neverland.

This short story was inspired by the #authorconfession challenge by J.M. Sullivan, on twitter, to write a character attending a party. Des’ anxiety mirrors the author’s own at times, expressing the daily struggle through the noise and bustle of life.
