Shout Out To the Hearts You'll Break

Author and Book Interview!

I'm proud to announce another author and book interview for myself and The Shadow Things, this time hosted by Rachel of The Inkpen Authoress.  She levelled some very good questions at me (and I hope I levelled some good answers back) and we had a good time.  (She was also extremely flattering, which I may or may not be able to handle.)  I'll give you a sneak-peek here, but go check out her blog and see what we had to say about Britain and Indi and the whole scope of The Shadow Things!  That's why we do interviews.


Was there a particular dream, thought, picture, etc. that first inspired The Shadow Things?

Yes, actually: a very heart-wrenching little novel by Rosemary Sutcliff.  It gave me a vague, watercolour kind of image for The Shadow Things; additionally I was inspired by a familiar notion that men have always held, a truth we can find in Scripture, and is probably most succinctly summed up in the words of C.S. Lewis: “If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.”
