..But the paperback version of DANCE OF THE SPIDER MONKEY just came out and I am just thrilled. Ordered my own copies and am waiting every day with bated breath for delivery. I can't believe Faye's writing will once again grace the stacks of libraries and be found in coffee shops! It is one of those things...you have a vision, you work hard, and then there is something of value. Writing is EXACTLY like that. Even on the crappy days when nothing seems to be coming out right.
Learning to respect your brain is a good place to start. If you haven't seen the interview yet with Conan Doyle, I urge you to watch it. The sound quality is actually pretty good. It is amazing that we can get our hands on this kind of historical footage at the tap of a finger. I am sure he would have been impressed!
If you've ever wondered about how Conan Doyle saw himself, how he came up with the concept of Sherlock Holmes, and how he turned to all things spiritual later in life, here is a chance to hear directly from the man! Please click here to see Doyle in person. Quite an amazing piece of footage.
I love the way Faye didn't try to hide the real people who lived during that time in her stories. Irene McAuliffe was one of those women whose story needs to be told. She was one of six women who were first hired in the U.S. to serve as officers of the Boston City police department. She was also an avid horsewoman and the daughter of a police chief.
