Hoping for a fresh start at a new college, little does Lilly know that her future lies beyond Earth. When she finds herself thrown into a completely different world, or rather, many worlds, all ruled by Fate, an omniscient power who predetermines human life, Lilly tiptoes the line of lawbreaking, seeking answers to her heritage. But her questions only multiply as she discovers that both her past and the mysterious events around her may hold the key to what Fate has planned.

A Reverie Tale explores the question of human free will, pitted against an omniscient, godly power that predetermines everything that has ever been, is, and will be: Fate. But is Fate real, or is her existence a made-up political power ploy? Lilly-Anne must unravel the very fabric of the otherworlds in her quest to find the truth.

A Reverie Tale: Borderlands and Transience is a story of friendship, belonging, and a battle for free will against the most powerful of adversaries.

The initial idea for A Reverie Tale came to me in a dream when I was only 15, the plot weaving together while I slept. Once awake, I couldn’t let go of the magical things I had seen, so I indulged in them, adding to the dream and expanding it.

The project was abandoned for nearly 10 years, until I found myself in lockdown, fresh out of university and unemployed. Days were spent wandering and dreaming. I returned to the story to escape the pandemic news. I had to refamiliarize myself with the plot and thanked my teen self for writing detailed timelines on 6ft long scrolls of A4 paper sellotaped together. The details and characters then matured, just as I have over the years.
