Chapter 1: True Peace


There are times when the moment inspires me to just create.  A view of a mountain lake, driving across the vast prairies of Alberta, looking down on Niagara Falls will just move me to paint, draw or write something.  The same feelings came over me when I was going out with someone special.

When we first went out and I got to know her, she so inspired me that I came up with an image of a character she might be in a story or comic.  I began sketching and soon came up with a character. The Baroness, a Victorian style Steampunk knight/teacher, with a Hammer of Justice.

She was my muse and I did not stop with the drawing.  I wrote a story around the Baroness meeting a Captain (I have always seen myself as a pirate at heart, with a conscience).  I gave it to her as part of a gift for her birthday.

Suffice it to say, she loved the drawing and the story and I thought I would share it with you all.  I did change something’s but the underlining theme and message in the story is the same.

I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did creating it.
