Raised, though not born, in rural New Hampshire, Christine Williamson graduated from Carleton College in 2002 with a BA in biology and her eyes set on a career spent studying marine wildlife. This sunny future, however, was suddenly and irrevocably derailed when she acquired her first manga and embarked upon an abrupt, but serendipitously timed, quest to earn an MFA in Sequential Art from the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vermont.
Having succeeded in that quest, Christine now resides in the wilds of New England and spends her time playing RPGs with local kids while earning money to placate the demands of two moody cats. It is her fondest wish to one day be able to truthfully say, “I am able to placate those demands with income earned exclusively and entirely from my writing and drawing endeavors.”

An interesting read. Drawing from high fantasy language for a frame, yet still capable of bringing the reader into close, intimate contact with its characters. 'Fractured Melody' is a beautifully successful portrait of a poignant, life and age changing event. I enjoyed this story immensely.
As noted in the extended description, it does feel a bit like a prologue. However, this should not be taken as discouragement! I'll wait for however long the series this heralds takes to appear. After reading this, I believe it'll be worth it.
