The telescope proved to be as popular as Aunt Kitty could have wished--until it was accidentally dropped overboard.
(I'm not completely sure, but I think this may be the same Aunt Kitty . . . )

Speaking of popularity [cue shameless self-promotion], here are a few new places to find me online:

The Really-Truly Princess Test: New eBook!

February 09, 2012
Finished: a personal writing/illustration project I've been playing with on and off for several months!

It's been a fun learning experience: putting the story and illustrations together, formatting and submitting the files for Kindle, Nook and PDF, and making the book trailer.

The Really-Truly Princess Test

Rosellen is just an ordinary little girl, except for one thing: Her parents are the King and Queen, so she's a Princess. Or is she? Using the story of "The Princess and the Pea" as a guide, Rosellen is determined to answer the question once and for all--with surprisingly messy results! The book features over 20 full-color illustrations and is an engaging read-aloud story for ages 6-10.

Edwin & Rosa (IF: Suspense)

Pen & ink with ink wash

Edwin and Rosa say goodbye; 
Edwin never tells her about the ring in his pocket.

Today is Charles Dickens' 200th birthday.
He died before completing The Mystery of Edwin Drood, 
so we are left in unending suspense . . .
Is Edwin dead? 
What do you think?
