The Magical Mystery Tour


What inspired me to write 
The Prodigal’s Foole by RB Wood

I’ve been asked this question quite a bit over the last couple of years. The answer is somewhat complicated.
I’ve loved writing since I was a young adult, but have always had a ‘creative outlet’ of sorts. When I was very young, it was drawing and art. From my yearly teens through college, it was music—and in fact I have a bachelor’s degree in math and computer science, but exited school debt-free due to music performance scholarships.
But reading and telling stories has been a constant through out my life.
When I was younger, I had many start-stop moments. It wasn’t until my children and partner said “Why don’t you write your stories down,” that I started up seriously again. This was in 2008-2009. The funny thing about being in your forties…you tend to finish what you start—at least for me anyway.
The Prodigal’s Foole is the first of The Arcana Chronicles series, and quite frankly came about because all the ‘magic stories’ out there had a similar throw-away comment—something to the effect of “Normal people can’t know about magic” or “Normal people aren’t observant enough to see magic.” The whole premise of the series (along with it being a good old-fashioned “good vs. evil”) is…what would happen if normal folk started paying attention? All that power….who would control it (Religions, in my book) initially? What would the impact of the last 50 years of technology do to a magical world? This will be explored throughout the series.
