This book features Nicholas and Julia back in London, sleuthing around Highgate Cemetery and blowing things up…you know, as you do. The collage images are not as crisp as I would like, but they give you an idea of what I was…

I’ve pinned foreign covers, some floral inspirations, and details from a room I stole… Okay, you can’t actually steal a room unless you count the tsar’s amber room, I suppose.

In which we’re talking setting

on September 19, 2013

As I mentioned in Monday’s post, when it came time to brainstorm SILENT ON THE MOOR, I was fortunate enough to make a trip to Yorkshire to absorb the setting. My goal was to focus on the moor itself, and after a few days in Haworth (Bronte country!) I had a feel for the wonderful…
