Finishing the First

Snow is melting on the sides of the roads!  Spring in Alaska may not be the most beautiful, but it sure gets me excited. :)  Green is just around the corner!

Now, on to the rest of the characters.
We have...
Brian: Rose's Prince
Christy: Rose's friend
Corin: Christy's prince and Brian's friend
Jenny: The old lady who helps Rose when she is lost in the woods
Priscilla: The fairy who turned the princes to frogs
The King: Rose's father
The Queen: Rose's mother

I still love looking at these pictures.  They make me laugh over and over again.  It's hard to explain the memories attached to each and every pencil, or crayon, stroke.  :)  I even still have the original manuscript.
If you look closely, you can read some of the words.

With my first book one finished, I was getting pretty excited.  I told everyone that I was a writer, and I was very proud of myself.  So naturally, I began my sequel.  Ideas began to stir and words began to appear on paper.  And that's how Lily came to be.  But she'll have to wait until next time. :)
Have a good Sunday!


  1. I want to thank you for the comment on my blog. It made me smile.
    I like your old characters! I use to write stories EXACTLY like you did, drawing pictures and hand writing even looked like yours did, haha.
    I really like your blog. A whole lot :)
