Storytelling via playful imaginings with words and visuals.

Book Excerpt
Hi everyone, my apologies for not posting on the blog more often. I will be posting at least once a month from now on. Yay! I hope you all had an amazing New Year. Wow! Halfway through January already! Incredible. 

I'm re-vamping the website, trying to make it less cluttered and using links/buttons to pages/topics rather than having an never-ending stream. Don't worry, I've kept the old pages, as below for example.

The Paper Unicorn

February 10, 2017
 
The story presented itself when I was creating a visual reference journal for a dolls house. The magic happens like that. Visuals and songs play through my mind and the new characters come alive. This story is quite different to 'A Carpet of Purple Flowers' but the spiritual connections are still there. ;o) Again, it is a fantasy romance derived from folklore. 
One thing I already know for sure, is that one of the character's is named,  Elian Trevelyan.
A brief blurb ~

Two characters come to life when Clara, a young woman from London, inherits an old manor house left to her by a stranger. On moving in, her own life becomes entwined with that of a beautiful love story previously lost within the manor's stone walls.
 
Love and light,
