Why ‘Feathers of the Firebird’? Well, there’s a Russian legend that says that when the firebird flies over the land, and one of her red-gold feathers drops to the ground, then inspiration will spark off, and a new story begins.
The perfect symbol and mascot for a writer–and one I’ve happily adopted! I love the beauty of the firebird image and sometimes wear a firebird brooch to remind me that writing isn’t just about hard work–it can be sheer, serendipitous magic.
This blog is about that magic–with some of the hard work as well! In it, I will not only profile my own work, but also that of other writers and creators through interviews and guest posts. And even wider than that, the environment in which we all work: the book industry, in its many aspects and transformations.
