K.C. Shaw

K.C. Shaw learned how to spin and weave over a decade ago. Until you’ve tried to make your own clothes from a sheep’s fleece or a field of flax plants, you’ll never know how vital spinning and weaving are to a pre-industrial society. The more Shaw worked on her spinning, the more interested she became in writing about it in a fantasy setting. She added an untrustworthy god of weaving and Weaver’s Shroud was begun.

Shaw’s fiction has appeared in numerous anthologies and magazines. She is also a member of the Tennessee Valley Handspinners Guild. Visit her website at http://kcshaw.net.

Madeline Muir and James North, who comprise the tailoring department, are much less happy to discover that Drackley wants their undivided attention--and their loyalty. Turning traitor isn’t typically a prerequisite for working as a tailor.
