To celebrate the release of my first book, I’m posting a new “Behind the Scenes” exclusive about The Next Together daily until September 3rd. You can find them all here, including Chapter One from Matt’s Point of View, a Harry Potter crossover, A scene from start to finish, a playlist and the book as different genres.
Today I’m sharing a tiny little look at another of Kate and Matt’s lives – one which isn’t mentioned in the book. It’s set in a vaguely medieval time, and is 100% inspired by this picture I found, which looks exactly like Kate.
In the story, Kate is a midwife with a secret place in the woods where she keeps her herbs and medicines, because the villagers are suspicious of magic and witches. Matthew is the village hangman, mainly because I just couldn’t resist a ‘Matthew Galloway’ pun.
