I am drawn to the relationship between the four boys who have worn the Robin costume and so have started my own series entitled, "Sons of the Bat." It focuses on their relationships... or more correctly, Dick's central role in the Batfamily.

The reading order for this series is different to the writing order. I started plotting “His Boys” first, but as I developed the story, ideas assaulted me for what happened before and likely after and so, “His Boys” is far from the first in the series. I have planned out 11 stories in the series so far!
