A Tale of Two Crowns

Preface by Oroya Pea Scot

I’ve always wondered how history effects the present.

It is an easy enough statement to comprehend. Once read, we tend to accept it and that doesn’t mean we believe it to be true, because what really is truth? Is there ever a truthfulness to anything we experience?

Now this might be a little hypothetical for these specific collection of stories, in fact why am I insisting we discuss this.A Tale of Two Crowns, is a simple collection of stories from a made up world, with made up people living inside pages.

But for one minute, these stories are truth. As readers we begin to live and breathe as these characters. We may even adopt certain characteristics to survive our own stories; and that’s what I’m trying to get at.

We, as living breathing people, are the protagonists of our own stories. We are the persona in our own poetry and we are certainly the actors and actresses of our own movies (we’ve all got a playlist that is our soundtrack to life).

We all carry a bias because we all have our own history and it is our pasts that influence our future. But as I suggested before, we are the writers of our future and it is up to us to inform the present of what the future will be.

For the people inA Tale of Two Crowns, they don’t have much choice as fictional characters. But as they breathe amongst the pages and come to life through themovie reel in your head, you’ll soon discover that one action made by a single person, can affect people who are not even in this world yet.

With that, my lovely readers, I’ll get on with the collection.
