It came from K. D. Azariah-Kribbs

The Three Sisters – K. D. Azariah-Kribbs

These images seem to be the foundation that underlies everything I write, and I can’t even dredge up a recollection of where I got them. I wish I could, for I would love to go back and read them again, but I suspect that what they were wouldn’t bear much resemblance to what they have become.

About K. D. Azariah-Kribbs

K.D. Azariah-Kribbs grew up in the hills of east Tennessee, a place where twilight starts early and lasts long. He studied geology in school, but when that didn’t answer the big questions he went back for medieval English literature. That didn’t quite do it, either. He traveled widely as a prospector, decided southern India has the best climate anywhere, and now writes speculative fiction in Maryland, where it’s easy to speculate about how things might have been otherwise.
