Companion Teva-- and her non sequiturs-- is probably the best known
of all my characters. She's certainly the loudest, and the first to jump large conclusions from a standing start.
Teva arose out of a determination on my part that I wanted
to write about the life of a 'normal' Circuit Herald-- none of this flashy Adept-level super magic, or saving Valdemar for
me. The idea probably would have sat in the back of my mind and grown mould, except that I was suddenly blindsided
by the notion; what if I narrated from the perspective of the Companion?
The rest, as they say, is history. Sarcastic, tangent laden
and quite frequently utterly plotless history.
So. That's Grass is Greener- it's a Companion's perspective
on this whole Herald business. It's also supposed to be funny. Contrary to what several parties would have you
believe, it's not all about the bouncy.
