"Just be who you are, calm and clear and bright." - Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

“First I was born; and now this.”

(That’s my favorite entry in the Hawthornden leaving book.)

I love Mrs. Heinz’s bookplate. (Mrs. Heinz is our benefactress.)

The castle courtyard.

My primary workspace.

Two of the four Sundays Kirsty, Melanie and I went to the Rosslyn Chapel and walked home in the snow.

See that gable to the left of the turret? That was my room.

The old Rosslyn Castle station platform.

Down in the dungeon. Hamish looks tempted to lock me in.

More soon (including a new video on Monday!)

    Been reading through your archives…left off at July 2012 to check to see if you’re back yet and you are! I can only imagine the magic you’ve spun in that castle and wanted to let you know that I’ve turned another writer on to your work…she can’t wait to read you, and in the same order I did with Petty Magic first.

    This looks so magical especially with all of the snow!

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
