Today we will be taking a look at The Creatures of Grasmere.

The Kingdom of Grasmere is vast and, being set in a fantasy time, has an abundance of creatures that are not seen in the world we live in today.  The main creatures described in the books of "The Bed Wife Chronicles" are the trolls.  I wanted these trolls to be different, not cookie cutter. There are trolls that swim the waters, wander the woods, hide in the caverns of the mountains, even trolls who burrow underground. So I wanted to give them labels like "River Troll" "Mountain Troll" and so on.  I combed the internet to get some inspiration (as shown in these pictures) and then added my own aspects and personality.

Another creature that is mentioned in the book, though would seem more generic for any medieval tale, are the horses.  The horses that belong to the Kingdom have to be vast, due to the large stature of their riders.  I envisioned something like a Morgan but much larger.  I can see a connection between horse and rider, something deeper than your average steed today.

A few other creatures that are mentioned, but not really touched open, are dragons, elves and dwarves.  The world that Baylin and Luana live in is alive with magic, mystery and danger.  No good writer worth their weight would leave out the dragons, elves and dwarves.  And who knows, I might expand on this a bit more in books two and three as I see the story develop more.
