Motty is a melancholy gnome, seeing little purpose in his humdrum life and dead-end job. Things seem finally too much for him until he meets a human named Theo, who rescues him from a barrage of attacking elves. They become fast friends as the elders confine Theo to live within the boundaries of the tree-city forever. But fate has more in store for them than this. As the same forces chasing Theo unite to assault the gnomes’ tree the man and gnomes are forced to flee toward safety.
Their journey begins, as they discover the only way to save their civilization, and the world at large from further conquest, is by defeating a demented Elf-Queen living far away. Through fairy prisons and realms of unicorns the gnomes and man must battle past vicious trolls, winding tunnels, and other harrowing villains and locations to finally end up in the elfish city itself and accomplish the task of destroying an Elf-Queen and her magic staff.
Hello, my name is Ben Ditmars. I’ve been on Tracy’s blog before and am very grateful for another opportunity to share my work and self with you. I’m a pretty random guy over all, writing plays, fiction and poetry. There’s a small flute instrument called an ocarina that I play too. And then there’s the nerdiness. I have a weakness for watching Doctor Who, Firefly and every other science fiction show. If I were any good at chess but my nerd fate would be sealed. Apart from that, I’m studying to be a teacher and volunteer in after school programs regularly.
