The Pixie Gowan is a tiny tale that explores the origins of Gowan, Nate Arbinger's pixie and companion-at-arms in the novel, Helwyn.
From the moment of conception, Gowan was a lively character, trying to hog scenes, stealing dialogue, flitting about the pages of Helwyn demanding to be seen. It was a challenge to contain this little pixie and let Molly and Nate's story be told. I thought once Helwyn was finished and the next book started, that Gowan would settle down, but no, it clamored loudly in my head, buzzing around, insistent that I give the pixie its due and dedicate a story to the ball of energy that is Gowan. As a writer, I know that when a character demands attention as Gowan did, that you had better give it to them. So here, Gowan, here it is–your story in all its glory, where you came from, and how you became the companion to a Helwyn.
