I’ve imagined that Eudora spent her years of higher education at Vassar College – Here is some information on that institution from Godey’s… VASSAR COLLEGE: WOMAN’S OWN.

Nigel was here just a moment ago. The sufragi assured them that Nigel had merely been misplaced, not lost as Eudora had insisted. Miss Schlact, however prim and proper, seemed entirely unconcerned about his absence. Windel, she could excuse for his distraction, but Miss Schlact was another matter.
Ah the breeze, ahh the crocodile, ahhh the hippo… maybe Miss Schlacht won’t come back.

With the closing of Kindle Worlds coming up in July, many of the KW authors are working on revamping the stories that will be republished without the connection to the original CANON material. Besides renaming the characters, which can be a struggle on its own, there’s also the matter of introducing the characters that you’ve […]
When you walk into a museum or a gallery and see a painting, sometimes you can just ‘tell’ who painted it. Blurred strokes, waterlilies, dreamy colors… Monet, right? (We have this painting here in Honolulu) Stars, watered-down images, directional brush strokes… Van Gogh? You got it! But, that’s not ‘just’ it. Artists go through their […]
