Declutter Your Command Center (The Cure for Chronic Writer’s Block)

I’m guest posting today over at Kellyn Roth’s blog, sharing some tips on overcoming chronic writer’s block (and also quietly hinting that I might be starting another book)…

History in Full Color

I’m so excited to share a few restored and colorized photos of the characters from “Where Daffodils Bloom.” Especially this beautiful portrait of Lily that was not discovered until after the book was published. So cool to see history in full color!

Costume Design: Madame de le Grande Bouche

Madame de le Grande Bouche (the wardrobe lady), was definitely the “biggest” costume I did for Beauty and the Beast! It’s amazing what can by done with old curtains, a refrigerator box, and a lot of imagination!

Telling True Stories: (The Good, the Bad, and the NOT.)

When I set out to write “Where Daffodils Bloom” it was very important to me that I create a book that was not only entertaining and well-written, but also authentic and true.

And that’s partly because of one very BAD example…

Costume Design: Cogsworth

Cogsworth’s costume turned out rather different from my original sketches. But I was still pretty happy with what I created using a refrigerator box and thrift store finds!
