Research: A Lamb’s Butt Hat for a Queen in Redruth, Cornwall

Research:  A Lamb’s Butt Hat for a Queen in Redruth, Cornwall

WRITTEN AT SOME TIME IN 2020~ISH My research for Untune the Sky, Volume Three of The Fury Triad, began in 1996, before I ever imagined I’d write anything set in England, as much as I loved it. It was our first trip across the pond and the only thing I knew for sure is that I wanted to see Cornwall. So despite many, many warnings, we spent three nights in London then picked up a rental auto from @AutoEuropeCarRentals and drove to The West....

Howdy! So. What’s up?

Howdy! I’m making slow progress on my final book, but it it feels so good! It also is very slow. Slow, right? Slow! I hope a few are following here. I’ve wanted to share on some of my writing issues but for now just understand I had a stroke and it has taken me awhile–two years!–to get where I need to be for now!

Yes, really.   Now, you might think I only...

Shooting Windows — Fury Triad Research

I love photographing windows, usually the view from within.  And when it comes to windows, there is nothing I love more than leaded glass. When we were in England in March 2013, I shot several views from Erinyes Manor Baddesley Clinton. It’s difficult to explain what it’s like visiting a place after you’ve already absorbed it into the fantasy world you’re building, absorbed it because of its floorplan, its history–chosen for very practical...

In Which a Deck of Cards May Have Taken Over the Dys-Brain

In Which a Deck of Cards May Have Taken Over the Dys-Brain

I’m busily back in the world of the Fury Triad. Want to know what I’ve been researching lately? Can I tell you without giving away any spoilers? I think maybe I can. Back in the 1400s a card game called Tarocchi became popular amongst the wealthy in what we know today as Italy. [Amongst: a sign my brain is living in the UK, now!] It was known by different names in different parts of Europe, including Tarot in France. These cards...
