When I first dreamed up the concept of The Hundred Halls I wanted to create a world where you could start reading at any of the Book Ones, then continue with any other series. I thought of it like a wheel with spokes and at the center of the wheel was The Order of Merlin. I had no idea that 6 years later it would become a reality.

I hope you all have enjoyed reading the books as much as I have enjoyed writing them. I’m already plotting out Season 2, so there’s a lot more to come.
