More About The House Witch and its spin-off series

What is a House Witch?

We let Fin, the House Witch of the title, explain himself what is a House Witch, as he answered this question to the king in the first book in the series:

A house witch. Or hearth witch if you prefer. My powers are
centered around the home. Food, protection, so on and so
forth: I can do a lot of things to make life comfier, and

What inspired The House Witch?

Delemhach answered this specific question on her AMA: “What specifically inspired The House Witch was one day I was cooking something (I don’t even remember what), and I just thought ‘Man, cooks in medieval times had to be strong to do this all the time’, and all of a sudden, I saw the kitchen in my mind. I knew the vibe, I knew the relationship dynamics… And it built from there. I wrote it during covid when I was bored and wanted something warm and fun. Little did I know it’d lead to some of my big dreams coming to light!”
