Frequently Asked Questions

Is French Island a real place?

Yes! Check out the links page to find out more if you’re interested.

So, is this a true story then?

Some of the things that happen in the story kinda, sorta, happened in real life, but with a very decent chunk of poetic rewriting.

Are your characters based on real people?

The main cast are based on people I know (and if you know me, you know them too!). But they’re characters in a fantasy story. What my characters say and do is only what THEY do, not what their real life counterparts actually did or would do.

The rest of the French Island cast are not and will not be based on real people. I’d hate for anyone to think they were misrepresented.

Flat-bear is real though :-)
