Wax & Wane: Stephen Blake
Stephen Blake lives in a small seaside Cornish town in the UK with his wife Sarah. He copes with eight cats, whilst Frodo the Border collie tries to maintain some sort of order. He’s been previously published in a number of anthologies such as Airship Shape & Bristol Fashion and Toys in the Attic: A Collection Evil Playthings.
Wax & Wane: That Familiar Feeling
What is your story about?
It is about a young girl who has reached the age required for her to take a familiar. Others have described it as a coming of age story. In my tale Sarah heads off into the woods to see which creature she feels connected to and of course they need to feel connected to her. I thought it would be interesting to show how a young witch gets her familiar and how the animal should match the witches mannerisms. There are also aspects about her own anger and if she’ll go down the route of black magic or if she is really a white witch at heart.
