"Blood and bone - Ash, water, smoke and stone - Let love be more powerful than greed."
In a city built on the ruins of past mistakes - in a land locked in a pattern of creation and destruction - is there a way to cheat the fates and break the cycle? Is a better world possible?
Kestrel Morton spins a visionary spiderweb of dark nightmares - glittering with the diamond-dewdrops of hope. A mythic recreation of a tale as old as time - Cinderella as you've never heard it before - Muddyfeet is a poetic epic, pitting dystopian future prophecies against the green shoots of change that seek to uplift and rewrite them.
A story from yesterday - told for tomorrow.
The Mountain of the Sun
"For each action there is an equal and opposite reaction."
A three-faced god and a golden feather, a whispering serpent and a monk's pilgrimage, a sheep stealer, a hooligan and a change of heart, all watched over by old Granny Chaos. Kestrel Morton weaves a stitch-tongued spell of language, enchanting all who hear it to follow its fantastical thread; into creation myths and wonder tales; through parables and into true stories; dancing on the sharp-knife edge between warnings and wonder in the wild world beyond the world.
Y Môr Hafren
Tales from the Severn Sea
"In the old times
before the Tlwyth Teg hid themselves from sight
and the dragons lay down to sleep beneath the cold stones
all things had spirits to watch over them."
The waters of the Severn sea whisper and roar, and on the voice of the waves come the tales sailing downstream - the many myths of Britain's longest river; from her birth in the hulking mountains of mid-Wales, as she's joined by her chorus of countless tributaries to at last bleed into the wide channel flowing away from our lonely island and out into the cold North Atlantic.
Join Kestrel Morton for a voyage where together we may listen to the whispering waters and hear the stories from the mouth of Y Môr Hafren - the Severn sea itself.
"Magic pots and shapeshifting tricksters, dreaming trees and immortal cities."
Available to fit any occasion, any length of time, with a wide variety of themes and characters, drawn from Welsh, British and European folklore, classic Greek and Norse mythology, a personal pantheon of modern Gods and much much more... Kestrel weaves tales spun from the silk string threads of the web of worlds, tales found on the tapestries of the spider sat at its heart, tales first spoken on the ancient tongue of old Granny Chaos herself.
