Feral Magic and Richard III
Working on Feral Two. I must admit I've always been a person who doubted Richard III's villainy (okay, I read Josephine Tey's Daughter of Time at an impressionable age). But one of the things that DID influence Feral Magic was Dak's love for his young and orphaned nephew, who is Chief, and Dak is regent. One of his fears was that people and enemies would accuse him of murder.
So I used that Richard III set up, and so interesting to see him in the news!
