Let me say up front that I do not speak the Welsh language. My beloved grandmother did so fluently, but I didn’t think to ask her to teach me (I was too young, and too interested in other things. Like her faery stories!). So, the Welsh words that I use in the Grim Series, while carefully and lovingly researched, are not guaranteed to be accurate. And the Fae languages in my stories are only very loosely based on Welsh.
In response to reader requests for meanings and interpretations of some of the terms used in the Grim Series books, I’ve begun assembling a glossary. Click on one of the categories below to be taken to that page.
- Human Characters
- Fae Characters, and other Non-Humans
- Pets and other Named Animals
- Fae Races, Faery Creatures, and Other Residents of the Nine Realms
- Locations in Human and Fae Worlds
- Faery Words and Phrases
- Welsh Words and Phrases
NOTE: This is a work in progress. I’ll be gradually adding to each of these pages as time permits!
