The Orkney Saga

Two interwoven storylines dealing with the conflict-ridden Orkney family. These are:

  • Maiden, Mother and Crone: The feud between Lady Morgause and her daughter Garnet (with Morgause’s sister Morgan le Fay popping in from time to time). This storyline is now complete. (Well, as complete as it’ll ever be …)
  • For Love or Money: Sir Mordred Orkney and the two women with whom he must share his life — Rosette Chevaux, his mistress, and Lady Dindrane, his wife.

On this page, I’ll put down most everything Orkney-related — these storylines are, after all, interwoven. But for your reading pleasure, I’ll tease out the different threads on the other two pages.
