Datura Inoxia explores the current day life of Joe, an odd recluse living amongst the secluded and wealthy in the Pacific North West. Joe is from an ancient past, living as an "un-dead" in today’s society. Surviving day to day by harnessing the moonlight in his garden, companionship offers him a detour from the tragic past he suffered at the hands of his sorceress ex-wife.

The garden may be one of the most classically elemental platforms of fantasy, and my goal was to add a new story to it’s divine nature. I grew up around florists and wreath makers, often trekking into the woods or garden, and stumbled through natural structures that inspired imagination.

I am open to edits and suggestions, and welcome feedback at authorcollinsyork@gmail.com.
