When I was a child I loved finding things…
…a jar of my grandmother’s old buttons, a cigar box filled with boy scout badges and river stones, a flouncy party dress pushed to the back of my mother’s closet – circa 1955. With every relic I discovered, there came a story. Real or imagined, the tales that surrounded each object were magic, making the ‘thing’ more immediate, something more than it was before I’d found it.
Fact or fiction, fantastic, joyful or sad, stories make us more than we were before we found them. Welcome to my shoebox of buttons, sealing wax and scribblings.
The lovely chill of autumn is in the air which means I’m getting closer to the October release of The Witches of New York in Canada and the UK. I’ll be touring Canada late October through November and I can’t wait to share the novel (and the many amazing and strange occurances that happened while I was writing it,) with readers across the country! My entire schedule is now up on the EVENTS page (with some details T.B.A.) If you’d like to stay posted on the latest happenings related to the book and/or the tour, please follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram; and be sure to sign up for my newsletter, Incidental Pieces , using the form below.
