The settings of Muirwood and Mirrowen are different. It's not the same world. But you have noticed (correctly) that there are similarities between them. I'm letting my readers speculate about this for now and may reveal more later on this topic. Stay tuned!(less)

‘Do not spoil the wonder with haste!
As part of the release of Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, celebrated authors (and huge fans) of the books are sharing their exclusive annotations with readers. We hope you enjoy these notes from Jeff Wheeler, a Wall Street Journal bestselling author. Wise words, Mr. Legolas. Wise words. As the elven singer Sissel says in her song: Slow down. Be still.

“It is a cruel fact, child. Wisdom comes after the moment when it is most needed.”
Jeff Wheeler, The Blight of Muirwood

“If it looks a bit rough, a little worn, with little splotches - those have the swetest flavor. The ones that are perfect on the outside tend to be a bit more bland. That is true about many things in life.”
Jeff Wheeler, The Wretched of Muirwood

“There is wisdom in climbing mountains... For they teach us how truly small we are.”
Jeff Wheeler, The Wretched of Muirwood

Thanks Amelia! Very kind of you to say and I wish you well with your writing. Thanks for reaching out.


Amelia Jeff,

Just wanted to let you know the Muirwood books are among my favorites, and helped push me over the edge to decide to write myself. I was deeply inspired by the way you weaved themes into your story and characters so successfully. I've a lot of respect for you and your writing, as well as your efforts in self publishing. I can't wait to read your new book!

Amelia
