Lisa's place...

Image
In Drovers Gap, boundaries are permeable. The line between Ordinary and Other Side (where the people in books are at least as real as those we meet on the street) becomes exceeding thin, especially during the change of seasons, or at the edge between day and night. The Main Muse and I took a long walk this afternoon. It was getting dark as we came back into town so we decided to take a shortcut down Pine Street. Apparently, we made a wrong turn and wandered into the Laurel Creek Containment District, for suddenly, the street made a sharp turn and there was Lisa Charon's Long Broad Hotel right in front of us.

Puckish....

Image
The characters in The Winged Child tend to escape their books. They are ever seeking new worlds to inhabit. A few of them have appeared in previous tales, and several have dropped by my current work-in-progress with apparent intention to stay and participate.  While The Winged Child is grinding through the publisher's mill toward release in February, this blog will be providing you an introduction to some of those puckish personalities, and some you may meet in future tales yet unborn. This novel won't end with a "goodbye" but a "see you around." Henry's books . If you would like Follow.it to deliver The Winged Child blog directly to your email inbox, click here .

A mind of her own...

Image
I began writing The Winged Child before I had any expectation it would ever be published. I only knew Millicent McTeer’s tale was a story I needed to know. The only way for me to know was to start writing. In the beginning, and for a while after, I wasn’t sure if I would be around to finish Millicent’s story. I thought, if I did, it would likely be my last novel. Now, Millicent has found a home with a publisher, Creative James Media , who plan to turn her loose on the world in February. Meanwhile I’m working on another novel I may not finish. Every day is a surprise. So far, Millicent has not made an appearance in my current work-in-progress, but it’s still early, I wouldn’t rule that out. She habitually shows up in unlikely places. Like all my characters, she has a mind of her own. I just write what they tell me.   Henry's books .
